I am very happy to be one of the 12 artists nominated for the 8th edition of the Emerige Revelations Grant, chosen from among nearly 1,000 applicants.
Emerige is a group of real estate developers who support contemporary creation through sponsorship actions. The Emerige Endowment Fund (Fonds de Dotation Emerige) notably supported the contemporary art exhibition Napoleon? Again ! From Marina Abramović to Yan Pei-Ming, visible until January 2022 at the Army Museum, where one of my drawings is on display.
The other artists selected for the 8th edition of the Emerige Revelations Grant are Annabelle Agbo Godeau, Amie Barouh, Lucile Boiron, Lisa Boostani, Madison Bycroft, Hugo Capron, Ymane Chabi-Gara, Hadrien Gerenton, Cécile Guettier, Louis Jacquot and Antoine Medes.
We will be invited to present our work in Paris as part of an exhibition designed by curator Gaël Charbau and then, on October 19, 2021, the jury will unveil the name of the winner.
This jury will be composed of Laurent Dumas, president of the Emerige Group, Benoît Porcher, founder of Galerie Semiose in Paris, Nina Childress, artist, Mara Hoberman, art historian, Éric Mangion, director of the Villa art center Arson in Nice as well as Vittoria Matarrese, director of the Performative Arts program at the Palais de Tokyo.
The chosen candidate will benefit from support from Galerie Semiose and an endowment of 15,000 euros to organize a personal exhibition there in 2022.
