I am honored to serve as one of the jurors for this art prize. Checkout the work of the 10 nominated artists. Really excellent all around.
MasterCard France confirms its involvement in Contemporary Art by appointing ArtFloor to organize the second edition of the Platinum MasterCard Prize. The 2011 edition of the Platinum MasterCard prize for Contemporary Art recognizes the talent of a contemporary visual artist and the involvement of the gallery that promotes his/her work internationally. The recipient is awarded a 12,000 euro cash-prize.
The prize is given to a living artist represented by a gallery located in France. The application is submitted by the artist and its gallery. All fields of the visual arts, from painting and sculpture to installation, video and new media are eligible.
The call for applications will end on December 15, 2011. ArtFloor will then proceed to the selection of the 10 nominees that will be submitted to the Jury.
The Jury, composed of international members from the Art World will vote and announce the winner next January. The 2010 edition of the prize was presided by Maître Pierre Cornette de Saint-Cyr and awarded to Stephan Laplanche in Paris.
