Goni Shifron

Prix Fabuleuse Signature

For its first edition, the Prix Fabuleuse Signature rewarded, Goni Shifron, an Israeli artist who has chosen France to live her artistic vocation. Goni Shifron's work situated between performance and sculptural installation leads her to question the notions of territory and identity in permanent resonance with the landscapes of her childhood. The jury was particularly sensitive to the depth of the reflection aroused by these rapprochements between deserts, closing of borders, emigration, poverty, which leads to a work freed from the constraints that nourish it.

Ellsworth Kelly Award

The New York–based Foundation for Contemporary Arts (FCA) has given its 2022 Ellsworth Kelly Award, which supports an institution in realizing a solo exhibition for a contemporary artist, to the Frist Art Museum in Nashville. The Frist will use the grant money to mount a show in 2024 for Iranian-born artist Shahpour Pouyan, marking his first solo presentation in the United States. In a statement, Frist senior curator Trinita Kennedy said, "Pouyan’s work is astonishing for its intense beauty, sophistication, and virtuosity. While his art is political, Pouyan never announces his agenda, leaving the door open for dialogue and understanding."

Dutch Pavilion

by Studio Ossidiana

Golden Bee Award

The Dutch Pavilion designed by Studio Ossidiana has won the Golden Bee Award at the XXIII Triennale di Milano. The pavilion has been commissioned by Het Nieuwe Instituut, the Netherlands’ Museum for Architecture, Design and Digital Culture. Entitled Have we met? humans and non-humans on common ground, the Dutch Pavilion promotes new ways for understanding our planet as a shared space for plants, microbes, humans and other animals. The view that the earth exists solely for human exploitation must be radically rethought to confront today’s environmental crises. Have we met? therefore examines what attitudes, tools and technologies are necessary to recalibrate the relationship between humans and non-humans.
