Prix Marcel Duchamp 2016 : innovation is key - Crash

Prix Marcel Duchamp BarthelemyToguo-HiddenFaces - Crash


By Crash redaction


On March the 4th of February, Gilles Fuchs, president of ADIAF (Association for the International Diffusion of French Art), unveiled the four artists names nominated for the Prix Marcel Duchamp 2016: Kader Attia, Ulla von Brandenburg, Yto Barrada and Barthélémy Toguo. But for its sixteenth edition, the Prix Marcel Duchamp takes an all new direction innovating the presentation of the nominated artists: from this point forward indeed, a collective exhibition will be presenting the artworks of the four final artists – and not any longer of the price winner as previously seen. The exhibition will be presented for a duration of three months at the Centre Pompidou Galerie 4, which will count on a 650-square-meter space to show the artists work. As reminded by Gill Fuchs, the aim of the Prix Marcel Duchamp and its new format will be to enhance the finalists artworks, giving a special visibility to the French contemporary art scene and its protagonists. Indeed, since 2000, the Prix Marcel Duchamp strives to gather together the most innovative artists of their generation and give them the opportunity to develop and sustain their art worldwide. It is not a surprise that the prize is considered one of the national prizes references in the world.
