The Marcel Duchamp Prize was created in 2000 by the ADIAF. Its ambition is to honour a French artist or artist residing in France, representative of his or her generation and working in the field of the plastic and visual arts: installation, video, painting, photography, sculpture … In keeping with the essential artist after whom it is named, this prize wishes to bring together the most innovative artists of their generation on the French scene and encourage all of the new artistic forms, thereby stimulating creation.
The winner was chosen by an international jury and announced Saturday, October 24, 2015 at the Grand Palais.
He will be invited by the Centre Pompidou for a solo exhibition in spring 2016.
The ADIAF will provide the winner a financial endowment of 35 000 euros.
