The Jean-François Prat Prize 2020 Welcomes the Work of Three Artists

Each year, the The Bredin Prat Foundation for Contemporary Art hosts the Jean-Francois Prat Prize. Proving to be a crucial event on the contemporary art scene, the annual event aims to give emerging artists exposure and advance new contemporary art.

For its ninth edition, the Prize invites this year’s three short-listed artists—Kei Imazu, Toyin Ojih Odula and Torey Thornton—to present their works in a group exhibition. The President of the jury, Marie-Claude Beaud, selected two African-American artists and one Japanese artist to better understand both of these art scenes, their cultural contribution, and their universal approach.

Only one of the participants will be the prize-winning artist, selected by a jury and revealed on October 1. The public exhibition will then continue from October 2 to November 14 at the Foundation in Paris.
