In partnership with the Arab World Institute, the Friends of the AWI are launching the Fifth Edition of the Friends of the AWI Prize for young contemporary Arab artists.
The Prize will offer the winning artist a three-month creative residency at the Cité internationale des arts in Paris, between February and April 2020. The artist will be given a place in which to create his/her work (a studio workshop), will benefit from professional guidance, and will have an opportunity to meet visitors.
The Prize includes a grant of 5,000 euros. It is composed of a grant for living expenses and a creativity grant for the creation of a work whose project has been submitted to the jury.
The work will be exhibited during the entire period of the collective exhibition ‘Arab Divas’ at the Arab World Institute (Paris, France), from April to July 2020. The winning work will then enter the AWI Museum’s collections.
Application deadline: 25 October 2019
