Le Meurice celebrates this year the 10th anniversary of the Meurice Prize for contemporary art.
Since 1835, artistic creation has always been essential to the identity of Le Meurice.
True to its heritage and its interest in the art of its times, Le Meurice founded in 2008 the Meurice Prize for contemporary art, and in doing so asserted its support of young artists. This act of corporate patronage is a non-profit initiative which each year provides financial support that will help an artist gain international recognition.
To celebrate this anniversary, Le Meurice has decided to offer 1000 euros to each of the finalists, to support their creativity.
The Meurice Prize for contemporary art is an international award with an endowment of €20,000. It concerns all disciplines in the visual and plastic arts (painting, sculpture, installation, photography, video, etc.) and distinguishes a project of international stature, proposed by an artist and their gallery, two weeks before the FIAC contemporary art fair in Paris.
