THE DRAWING NOW PRIZE
This year, five artists will be shortlisted for the 2019 DRAWING NOW Art Fair (DNAF) Prize among the eligible artists presented at the fair.
Their names will be announced during the exhibition of the 2018 DNAF Prize winner, Michail Michailov, at the Drawing Lab Paris.
Chosen amongst each gallery’s artist in Focus, the eligible artists have no age constraints. The objective of the Prize is to encourage the work of a mid-career artist using the medium of drawing, which is a momentous stepping-stone of an artistic career.
The Prix DRAWING NOW committee includes members of the Fair’s selection committee and SOFERIM, the award’s leading patron, represented by Jean Papahn. Once the committee has seen and gathered to discuss the five artists’ works at the DNaf, the winner’s name will be announced at the Fair’s opening on Wednesday, March 27th.
He or she will be awarded 5,000 Euros and a personal exhibition at the Drawing Lab in the following year.
