The Marcel Duchamp Prize is undergoing a major evolution in 2016. After 15 editions which have proven it to be one of the top benchmark national awards in the world, it is gaining new momentum thanks to an even stronger collaboration with the Centre Pompidou, the ADIAF’s partner ever since the prize’s creation.
“The evolution of our Prize’s format in 2016 pays tribute to the four finalists and will cast an even stronger spotlight on the French contemporary scene. This is a major turning point for the Marcel Duchamp Prize which is taking on a new dimension as well as being a great challenge for the nominated artists to meet.” Gilles Fuchs, President of the ADIAF
Inaugurated this autumn, the Marcel Duchamp Prize’s new format includes:
• A group show of the four nominated artists, and not solely for the winner as before.
• The show will be presented in the new Galerie 4 with a surface of 600m2, twice the space of the Prize’s previous exhibitions.
• The winner will be proclaimed in the Centre Pompidou during the week of the FIAC.
• The ADIAF will publish a catalogue of the marcel Duchamp Prize exhibition.
• The winner will receive a financial endowment of 35 000 euros from the ADIAF/em>
