Concurso
 

La Fundación François Schneider (Francia) abre la convocatoria para participar en Contemporary Talents, dirigido a todos los artistas visuales de todas las nacionalidades. Con 300.000 euros en reconocimientos para las categorías de Fotografía, pintura, dibujo, escultura instalación y video.

 

OBJECTIVES OF THE “CONTEMPORARY TALENTS” COMPETITION

Through the “Contemporary Talents”

competition, the Foundation wishes:

 

to encourage artists to appropriate

this theme which has belonged to the

history of art since the beginning of time.

to bring them, through art work, to reflect,

observe, analyse and criticise, to divert

and use water, its properties, its symbols,

its tools, its challenges,

to offer the artists a platform to reach

all kinds of audiences.

to foster exchanges and networking

with cultural players.

to develop the public’s awareness,

and in particular to arouse an interest

in contemporary art in young people,

and enable them, through the water theme,

to feel and get a better perception

of the diversity of views of the world.

 

PRESENTATION OF THE THEME: WATER

Water, essential to all life and to the development

of mankind, is a multi-faceted and yet singular

element. It is symbolically one of the natural

elements, with air, fire and earth, which make

up the universe.

 

It is at heart of mythology and religion.

It is a sign and a symbol, and constantly

changes form. Water is a natural resource,

of course, but for a large part of mankind,

it is the rarest asset.

 

COMPETITION RULES

This competition is open to candidates of all nationalities, all ages, and in the following six disciplines

of the plastic arts: painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, photography and video. For disciplines installation

and sculpture, the artists have the possibility of submitting either existing works or projects.

For the four other disciplines, only existing works may be presented.

 

Each year, the François Schneider Foundation devotes to the “Contemporary Talents” competition

a maximum budget of €300,000, which is divided into two parts:

 

€150,000 FOR THE ACQUISITION OF SEVEN WORKS THE CANDIDATES

CHOSEN WILL BE:

 

firstly the prize-winners in the “Contemporary Talents”, 6 prize-winner who will each receive 20,000 Euros for the acquisition of their work,

and secondly a work, considered by the International Panel of Judges as the most promising, will be awarded the title “Talent d’Eau” (Water Talent). The artist will receive 30,000 Euros for the acquisition of his or her work.

€150,000 FOR THE REALISATION OF THE WORKS PRESENTED IN PROJECT FORM.

 

For the artists who submit their work (installation or sculpture) in project form, the candidatures must

include an estimation of the budget required to realise the work (including the cost of transporting

and installing the work). These costs will be covered by the Foundation up to the limit of the total

budget of €150,000.

 

The “Contemporary Talents” competition will give rise to a collective exhibition at the Centre d’Art, and

a bilingual publication presenting the works of the prize-winners and finalists. Each candidate may only

submit one work or one project.
