The Marcel Duchamp Prize

The Marcel Duchamp Prize is held in honor of the great 20th century French artist, known as the pioneer of comtemporary art, as a way of supporting and promoting artists who lead the French contemporary scene, working in the field of the plastic and visual arts: installation, video, painting, photography and sculpture. The prize, which is opened to French artists and artists living in France, was established in 2000 by the ADIAF. It is organized in partnership with the Centre Pompidou and the FIAC (International Contemporary Art Fair).
