Discovery Award 2016

Supported by the LUMA Foundation since 2002, this is the Rencontres d’Arles’ top prize.
The idea is simple: five preeminent figures from the art world each nominate two artists. Gender parity has been the rule since 2015.
We stage an exhibition for all of the nominees and a jury of professionals votes to choose a winner, who is awarded €25,000 to continue his or her work.
