Following the 2020 call for projects, the Fondation Villa Seurat pour l’Art contemporain received more than 750 submissions. We thank all the artists who have expressed an interest. The competition was of a very high level, showing the infinite breadth of human creativity.
The Jury, composed of Danielle Cohen, Gundi Falk, Thierry Forien, Martin Kiefer and Valérie Maigné selected the prizewinners in three stages. It chose the following works, unanimously:
