The Fluxus-CPGA Prize aims to support talent from the French artistic scene and to enhance their international notoriety. It also puts the emphasis on the relationship between the artist and their gallery.
The jury was composed of Hervé Mikaeloff (curator), Hélène Nguyen Ban (art collector and chair of Fluxus Art Projects), Hans Ulrich Obrist (art director, Serpentine Gallery), Florence Ostende (curator, Barbican Art Gallery), Thibault Poutrel (art collector), Maria Sukkar (art collector).
They have awarded multidisciplinary artist Josèfa Ntjam and their gallery, NıCOLETTı.
Josèfa Ntjam‘s practice associates sculpture, photomontage, video, and performance. Gleaning the raw material of her work on the Internet, in natural history books and in her personal archives, she assembles – images, words, sounds and stories – as a means to deconstruct the main narrative on notions of origine, identity and race.
NıCOLETTı is a London-based gallery dedicated to supporting the development of emerging artists. Founded in May 2018 by French curators Oswaldo Nicoletti and Camille Houzé, NıCOLETTı is located in a converted warehouse on Vyner Street, East London.
