Since 2008, the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès has supported the Prix Marcel Duchamp for contemporary art, presented annually to a French artist, or an artist living and working in France. The internationally acclaimed prize aims to promote the French art scene worldwide.
Created in 2000 by the ADIAF (Association pour la Diffusion Internationale de l’Art Français), the Prix Marcel Duchamp has become a fixture on the international contemporary art calendar. Named for one of the leading forefathers of today’s contemporary art scene, the French award has joined the ranks of the best-known and most influential national prizes in the world today.
‘Our prize is designed to spotlight the rich creativity of French contemporary artists,’ says Gilles Fuchs, president of the ADIAF. Each year, a committee of collectors nominates four artists, who are either French or living and working in France. Since 2016, all four nominees have taken part in an autumn exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, Paris, with their work featured in the accompanying catalogue. Support for the award from this leading, internationally acclaimed institution ensures exceptional visibility with the widest possible public.
Chosen by an international jury of collectors and directors of major art institutions, the annual winner receives the sum of 35,000 euros. The Fondation d’entreprise Hermès is a long-standing supporter of the award, which has contributed greatly to the influence and renown of French contemporary artists on the international scene.
