The Revelations Emerige prize offers each year a real support to an emerging French plastic artist. The contestants have to be younger than 35 and not be represented by a gallery. The chosen artist gets to produce his first solo exhibition in a French gallery and benefit from a worldwide visibility. The Revelations Emerige accompanies the project from start to finish, from finding a workshop to producing the artwork and financing the final exhibition.

This year, the Revelations Emerige welcomes two galleries : Papillon (Paris) and The Pill (Istanbul), which will both be promoting the finalists. The Pill will select one of the artists to present his work in a solo show and the winner of the Revelations prize will be able to expose at the Papillon gallery as well as participate in a collective exhibition at the Pill in Istanbul. Emphasis has been put on international instances to offer a greater visibility to the selected artists.

From the 8th to the 30th of November, you’ll get a chance to discover the work of the 12 finalists in a collective exhibition called « En forme de vertiges », imagined by Gaël Charbau, at the Villa Emerige in Paris. The prize winner will be announced on November 7th, the day of the opening. Take a first look at the artists below :
