On Monday 18 March 2024,  Luxembourg’s Ministry of Culture announced it has launched a call for proposals for the acquisition of works of art for art galleries.

As part of its policy of supporting creation, creators as well as innovation and the emergence of a dynamic cultural sector, the Ministry of Culture annually acquires works of art on behalf of the State. The works from this collection are made available for the artistic development of ministries and government administrations as well as through loans to cultural institutions. With the development of this collection, the ministry added it also seeks to contribute to the safeguarding and enhancement of the country's cultural heritage.

The call for proposals for the acquisition of works of art is aimed at professional art galleries active in the field of visual arts, established in the Grand Duchy.

The deadline for this appeal is 21 April 2024. The eligibility criteria and further information can be found on the Ministry of Culture’s website: https://mcult.gouvernement.lu/en/Domaines/appels-a-projets.html.
