Marcel Duchamp Prize
The exhibition of the Marcel Duchamp Prize 2019 at the Centre Pompidou will take place from 9 October 2019 to 6 January 2020 in Galerie 4, level 1.
For its 19th edition, the Marcel Duchamp Prize presents projects with varied plastic foundations and thus reflects, thanks to the choices of the ADIAF selection committee, the diversity of practices coexisting today in France. Eric Baudelaire, a filmmaker by preference, is putting together a comprehensive exhibition project based on a film shot with schoolchildren from Seine-Saint-Denis. Katinka Bock and Marguerite Humeau offer two different approaches to sculpture. The first delicately re-reads the legacy of contemporary sculpture based on a delicate materiality. The second takes up narrativity again and promises new mythological subjects based on scientific premises anchored in the present. But the most remarkable event of this edition is undoubtedly the return of painting, which for a long time was absent from the Marcel Duchamp Prize, thanks to the roguish project of Ida Tursic and Wilfried Mille: the duo questions with serious wit the very possibility of painting today.
