Impressive artistic vitality celebrated at the 2016 ADAGP Revelations
As part of its cultural action, ADAGP supports young talent by rewarding talented young artists in various creative fields: plastic arts, artists’ books, digital art–video art, comic strips and urban art.
For the second consecutive year, ADAGP has highlighted emerging artists on the French art scene by honouring them through five Revelation prizes.
Jointly chaired this year by Meret Meyer (Vice-President of the Marc Chagall Committee) and Hervé Di Rosa (artist), the juries are composed of prominent members of the contemporary art world (artists, journalists and critics, representatives of institutions).
These Revelations were celebrated on Thursday, 8 December at a special evening held at the CENTQUATRE attended by the five prize-winners, members of the juries and numerous artists.
This prize list confirms the vitality and richness of a young generation of creators who cast a sharp eye over our times.
