Le prix Marcel Duchamp
Evariste Richer
Jul 4, 2014 - Sep 28, 2014
Musée des Beaux-Arts, Rouen (France)
Created in 2000 by the ADIAF, the Marcel Duchamp Prize distinguishes each year a French artist or an artist residing in France, working in the field of plastic and visual arts. Since its inception, it has benefited from a partnership with the Centre Pompidou, and has mobilized a network of the art world of exceptional quality. Today, it is one of the most prestigious prizes awarded in the world of contemporary art.

For four years, the ADIAF has been engaged in a Tour de France to meet a new public. After the LaM near Lille in 2011, the Château de Tours in 2012 and the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Libourne in 2013, the City of Rouen and its Musée des Beaux-Arts are hosting this year the exhibition of the four artists nominated for the 14th edition of the Marcel Duchamp Prize. An emotional event for the ADIAF in a city that has marked the youth and the work of Marcel Duchamp.

Visitors will be able to discover small-scale works by Théo Mercier, Julien Prévieux, Florian and Michael Quistrebert, and Evariste Richer in the drawing rooms of the Musée des Beaux-Arts, as well as monumental installations at the Abbatiale Saint-Ouen. A special itinerary in the city has also been designed around the event: special exhibitions in the galleries, a visit to the monumental cemetery where Marcel Duchamp's ashes are preserved, and the permanent collections of the Musée des Beaux-Arts, where a new display has been set up in the rooms dedicated to the Duchamp family.
