The publication Prix de Rome 2015 presents the work of four talented young artists who have been selected by an international jury for the shortlist of the ‘Prix de Rome Beeldende Kunst 2015’. The nominees are Foundland (Lauren Alexander and Ghalia Elsrakbi), Hedwig Houben, Christian Nyampeta and Magali Reus. The jury was impressed by their rich and diverse oeuvres, as well as by their innovative and experimental attitude. Despite the overlap in topics and research, each of the nominees works from a unique position and approach.
The ‘Prix de Rome’ is the oldest and most generous prize in the Netherlands for visual artists and architects under the age of 40. The purpose of the award is to highlight talented artists, encourage them to develop further, and to increase their visibility. The award is organized by the Mondriaan Fund. The winner will receive a sum of €40,000 and be given a working period in Rome.
