DUBAI: Louvre Abu Dhabi announced on Friday the second edition of the Richard Mille Art Prize, aimed at attracting artists living and working in the Gulf region.
In celebration of its fifth anniversary, the competition will allow creatives working in various fields to showcase their work at the museum’s Forum, a space of interaction and exchange dedicated to contemporary art.
Peter Harrison, the CEO of the Swiss watchmaking brand Richard Mille in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, said the company was “honored” to be expanding the opportunity for GCC nationals and residents.
“Following last year’s impressive roster of artists, this year’s edition … challenges artists to reflect on the powerful terms ‘Icon’ and ‘iconic,’ advancing the confines of their creativity,” he added.
The museum also announced the second edition of its exhibition contest, titled Louvre Abu Dhabi Art Here.
The shortlisted artists’ work will be on display from November 2022 to February 2023.
From this group, the jury will select one winner who will receive the Richard Mille Art Prize.
Submissions for both competitions are open until July 31.
