ASSOCIATION MARCEL DUCHAMP
Wishing to name the prize of an internationally recognized French artist, Gilles Fuchs approached Jacqueline Matisse-Monnier, Marcel Duchamp's granddaughter and custodian of the moral rights of this artist considered by many to be one of the most important of the 20th century and the precursor of contemporary art.
Jacqueline Matisse-Monnier having immediately adhered to the values carried by the Marcel Duchamp Prize has accepted that this prize for young creators dedicated to the French scene bears the name Marcel Duchamp. The Marcel Duchamp Association, which is today the custodian of Marcel Duchamp's moral rights, has renewed this agreement and is closely associated with the organization of the prize: member by right of the ADIAF's Board of Directors, participation in the Selection Committee and the jury of the Marcel Duchamp Prize.
Since 1977, the Centre Pompidou has never ceased to be a place deeply rooted in the city and open to the world and innovation. Its emblematic building houses the richest collection of modern and contemporary art in Europe, one of the two largest in the world, as well as exhibitions, conferences, festivals, shows, screenings and workshops for young audiences. Its extremely rich program, at the crossroads of disciplines and audiences, attracts more than 3.5 million visitors each year. True to its desire to make culture and creativity accessible to as many people as possible, the Centre Pompidou is developing its presence in the regions and internationally.
A key partner of the ADIAF since the creation of the Marcel Duchamp Prize in 2000, the Centre Pompidou has chosen to open up its selection of exhibited artists through the eyes of collectors and to organize an exhibition each year that gives exceptional visibility to the prize-winning artists. After hosting the winner for a solo exhibition for 15 years, the National Museum of Modern Art has opened its doors wide to the four nominated artists who, since 2016, have enjoyed a three-month group exhibition, offering visitors a snapshot of the French scene and current artistic creation.
Ministère de la Culture
The main mission of the Ministry of Culture is to "make the most important works of humanity, and first and foremost of France, accessible to the greatest number of people". In collaboration with the other ministries concerned, it implements the actions of the State intended to ensure the influence in the world of culture, of French artistic creation and of the French-speaking world. Coordinating the State's policy on the visual arts, its General Directorate for Artistic Creation (DGCA) supports associations strongly committed to the dissemination of contemporary art. The ADIAF benefits from its support, in particular for the catalog of the MARCEL DUCHAMP PRIZE.
The Institut français is the public institution in charge of France's external cultural relations. Its action is at the crossroads of the artistic sectors, intellectual exchanges, cultural and social innovation, and linguistic cooperation. It supports the promotion of the French language, the circulation of works, artists and ideas throughout the world and thus encourages a better understanding of cultural issues.
The Institut français, under the supervision of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture, actively contributes to France's cultural diplomacy. Its projects and programs take into account local contexts and rely on a unique capacity to deploy through the vast network of cultural services of French embassies, French institutes and alliances on five continents.
As a partner of the ADIAF for more than fifteen years, the Institut français supports international exhibitions dedicated to the French scene organized by the ADIAF, such as recently in China where the Marcel Duchamp Prize was presented as part of the Croisements Festival, or in Argentina during the exhibition organized as part of BienalSur. Several projects are underway for the 20th anniversary of the Marcel Duchamp Prize.
SÈVRES – MANUFACTURE ET MUSÉES NATIONAUX
Sèvres - National Manufacture and Museum is a public institution located between Paris and Versailles. It brings together the prestigious Sèvres National Porcelain Factory, in operation since the 18th century, and the National Ceramics Museum.
The Manufacture invites international artists and designers to be in residence. Their creations are then exhibited at the Sèvres Gallery in Paris and at the most prestigious international art fairs. As for the Museum of all ceramics, it is an invaluable source of inspiration for the 120 Sèvres craftsmen, but also for all creators, collectors and art lovers. Of the 50,000 works conserved, some 5,000 were made at the Manufacture from the 18th century to the present day.
As part of a partnership established in 2019, Sèvres - Manufacture et Musée nationaux will host a residency every two years in the workshops of the Manufacture for an artist nominated for the Marcel Duchamp Prize. The residency takes place in a unique environment, with artistic and technical support, to create one or more original ceramic works. The call for projects is open to eight selected artists (current year's edition and previous year's edition).
Reinventing artists’ residencies
Villa Albertine, a new French institution for arts and ideas in the United States, builds on the bold and innovative programs that have been the hallmark of the French cultural network abroad for more than a century.
Created by the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs, and supported by the French Ministry of Culture, Villa Albertine offers a novel artists’ residency model in which residents choose the location best suited to their work within the host country. With a permanent presence in 10 major US cities, it aims to foster in-depth exploratory residencies for artists, thinkers, and culture professionals hailing from all creative disciplines. In its inaugural year, Villa Albertine will host 80 residents for one- to three-month customized residencies.
Powered by a team of 80 people in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, New Orleans, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., Villa Albertine actively supports the endeavors of French cultural actors across the country through a bold and nimble program, in close collaboration with leading American cultural organizations.
Villa Albertine also offers 15 professional programs that cover key cultural fields and creative industries. Supported by FACE Foundation, these programs, led by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and now to be managed by Villa Albertine, have reinforced the links between the French and American cultural landscapes over the past 30 years with the support of numerous partners. The Villa also provides studies, analyses, and reports on cultural trends for professionals in a variety of creative industries on both sides of the Atlantic.
The Villa Albertine universe further encompasses a magazine, which highlights inspiring individuals, explores U.S. territories through a global lens, documents emerging trends, and shares original creations.
Festivals, events, and symposia complete this flexible, global venture, supporting French cultural stakeholders in the areas central to their creative inquiries.
