The 2016 Prix Canson®
2016 Prix Canson® in a few words :
Since 2013, the Prix Canson® can be said to embody the group’s desire to develop an art prize recognized at an international level. This ambition is illustrated in the choice of internationally-renowned artist, Tunga, as this year’s President, and an expert jury who put forward candidates from several different countries.
The 2016 edition of the Prix Canson® follows on from several key decisions made in 2014: the Prix shall henceforth be an annual event, and will take place in Paris and in another international destination on alternate years.
For this sixth edition, the prize-giving ceremony of the Prix Canson® 2016 will take place at the Drawing Center in New York City.
