Juan Uslé, Winner of the Daniel & Florence Guerlain Contemporary Art Foundation 13th Drawing Prize.
From MPA / Moisés Pérez de Albéniz Gallery, We want to congratulate Juan Uslé for winning this edition of the Daniel & Florence Guerlain Contemporary Art Foundation Prize for Drawing.
In 2007, Daniel & Florence Guerlain decided to focus their efforts on their passion for drawing and founded the Contemporary Art Drawing Prize. Aimed towards artists who use drawing as their main vehicle of expression, it sponsors 3 artists per year. Since 2010, the award ceremony has been held at the Salon du Dessin in Paris, an art fair reserved for ancient and modern drawings that attracts collectors, specialists and museums from all over the world, and which gives space to a great debate on the presentation and conservation of the work of art on paper. The winner receives an award from 15.000 euros, while the two finalists, each receive a prize of 5,000 euros. In addition, the Foundation donates a work of the winner to the Department of Engraving and Drawing of the Musée Nationel d´Art Moderne – Center Pompidou.
The other artists selected for this edition are: Callum Innes and Florian Pumhösl
Cameron Jamie, an artist also represented by Galeria MPA / Moisés Pérez de Albéniz, was the winner of the award in 2016.
