ARTISTS NOMINATED FOR 2016 MARCEL DUCHAMP PRIZE
The four artists nominated for the 2016 Marcel Duchamp Prize have been named by the Association for the International Diffusion of French Art (ADIAF).
The prize, which has been supported by Lombard Odier almost since its launch, is intended to promote the international recognition of artists working in France, in the field of visual and fine arts.
Kader Attia, born in 1970 in Dugny (Seine-Saint-Denis) is represented by the Galleria Continua in San Gimignano, the Nagel Draxler Gallery in Berlin, the Krinzinger Gallery in Vienna and the Lehmann Maupin Gallery in New York.
Yto Barrada, born in 1971 in Paris, is represented by the Galerie Polaris in Paris, the Sfeir-Semler gallery in Hamburg and Beirut, the Galerieofmarseille in Marseille and the Pace Gallery in London.
Ulla von Brandenburg, born in 1974 in Karlsruhe, Germany, is represented by the Galerie Art Concept in Paris.
Barthélémy Toguo, born in 1967 in Cameroon, is represented by the Galerie Lelong in Paris.
This year for the first time, there will be a group exhibition of the four nominated artists – not just the winner – over three months in the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
The exhibition will run from 12 October 2016 to 16 January 2017 with a private view on Tuesday, 11 October.
The winning artist will be announced in the Centre Pompidou on Tuesday, 18 October 2016, during the week of the Paris International Art Fair (FIAC). The winner receives an endowment of 35,000 euros.
The four nominated artists were selected by a committee of the ADIAF’s collectors and the winner will be chosen by an international jury of collectors and directors of leading institutions.
The Marcel Duchamp Prize has been organized in partnership with the Centre Pompidou since its founding in 2000 and with the FIAC since 2005. More information is available on the ADIAF website.
