The Prix Marcel Duchamp is awarded each year to a French artist or an artist living in France and working in the field of the plastic and visual arts. As part of its close involvement with contemporary creation in all its forms, since 2008 the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès has been a dedicated supporter of this prize, which is amongst the leading accolades in the field of contemporary art.

In the year 2000, the ADIAF (Association pour la Diffusion Internationale de l’Art Français) created the Prix Marcel Duchamp. By honouring a French artist or an artist living in France, active in the fields of plastic and visual arts and representative of their generation, the ADIAF aimed to raise the profile of French artistic creativity on the international scene. 

A hugely successful initiative, the Prix Marcel Duchamp has become a reference in the field of contemporary art. Over the years, the artistic practices of the laureates and nominees – four in total each year – have come to form a unique panorama of contemporary creativity in France, in all its vitality and diversity.

The Centre Pompidou, Musée National d’Art Moderne accompanies this prize, which has also been supported by private collectors since its founding. Since 2016, this public partnership has been reinforced through the decision to grant each of the nominated artists a personal exhibition at the Centre Pompidou.
