Artprice by Artmarket congratulates Mimosa Echard, winner of the 2022 Marcel Duchamp Prize
PARIS, Oct. 19, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Against the backdrop of the French capital's growing appeal for the 
international art market (many major international galleries have opened 
branches, Bonhams has taken over the Parisian auction house Cornette de Saint 
Cyr, the first edition Paris+ art by Art Basel is about to open…), the Marcel 
Duchamp Prize is gaining in prestige. Having shortlisted four artists – Giulia 
Andreani, Ivan Argote, Philippe Decrauzat, and Mimosa Echard – the prize 
committee has effectively illustrated the attractiveness of France for foreign 
artists because, among them, three are of foreign origin who have chosen to 
work in France. 

Mimosa Echard, the winner after long and lively discussions
The four nominees for 2022 – whose works reflect the diversity of artistic 
practice in a dynamic French art scene – were chosen by a committee of ADIAF 
collectors, which is renewed each year. They were subsequently given nine 
months to mount individual exhibitions at the Centre Pompidou, the impact of 
which was decisive for the final decision of the jury (composed of curators 
from major museums and international collectors) whose opinions are 
authoritative in the world of Contemporary art. 

Artprice is proud to support this ADIAF initiative and congratulates the 2022 
winner, Mimosa Echard, who was awarded the prize after "very lively, long and 
fascinating discussions" according to Xavier Rey, Director of the National 
Museum of Modern Art of Paris at the Centre Pompidou, and historical partner of 
the ADIAF.

More than just a prize…
"The primary characteristic of the Marcel Duchamp Prize is being a collector's 
prize dedicated to the international promotion of the French scene". This 
ambition is driven by Claude Bonnin, President of the ADIAF, and it takes 
concrete form via the collaboration of various important players in the art 
world - artists, collectors, gallery owners, reporters, curators, museums, etc. 
- both in France and abroad. But more than a prize, it is also "a complete 
support system for artists with the ADIAF's program of international 
exhibitions and residences for the finalists in France (at the Manufacture de 
Sevres) and in the States United (with a research residency at the Villa 

The ADIAF, therefore, helps to highlight the French scene in its most 
innovative aspects, to enhance its global reach and influence and promote the 
vitality of its market: "this is why we are very proud at to 
support the ADIAF and the Marcel Duchamp Prize" (thierry Ehrmann, CEO of and founder of Artprice.)

The Marcel Duchamp Prize
It was Jacqueline Matisse-Monnier, granddaughter of Henri Matisse and

Prize. For 22 years, this prize has been a key event in the Contemporary art 
world, promoting the French artistic scene by giving it international 

Created in 2000 by Gilles Fuchs, founder of the ADIAF, and organized from the 
outset in collaboration with the Centre Pompidou, every year the Marcel Duchamp 
Prize selects one winner from among four shortlisted artists, (French or 
residing in France). To date, this "collectors' prize" (90,000 euros, of which 
35,000 for the winner) has honored 23 winners and more than 90 artists. 

More than just a prestigious distinction, the Marcel Duchamp Prize provides a 
comprehensive support system for artists via exhibitions (more than 50 to date, 
including 20 internationally) and residencies in France (Manufacture de Sevres) 
and in the United States (Villa Albertine).

Over the years, it has established itself as one of the most relevant 
information vectors on Contemporary art in France. Ambassador of the French 
scene, it has acquired notoriety and prestige that places it among the world's 
major reference prizes.
