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 :
