AWARDING OF THE PRIZES FOR THE BEST WORK SEEN IN 2005
SATURDAY 07.01.06 AT 8PM
ON DISPLAY TILL 21.01.06
The time has come for celebration and affirmation.
Etablissement d’en Face has the pleasure of inviting you to the second edition of its international prize.
Once a year, beginning in 2005, approximately five pots will be awarded to people and/or their works whom the Etablissement deems meritorious. The selection process is surely the most straightforward that can be imagined nowadays: in determining the most deserving artists/works, we allowed ourselves to be guided by our deeply felt beliefs. Hence we avoided a democratic selection process, which might have otherwise compromised the event.The Etablissement Pots go to works that different members of the Etablissement have become acquainted with in 2005.
In the presence of distinguished guests, the identity of the nominees will be made public the evening of the awards ceremony. The pots as well as documentation on the prize winners will be exhibited from Saturday January 7 until Saturday January 21. At the end of the period, the pots will be sent to the persons/institutions concerned.
The works selected for this second edition consist of the following:
‘DESCRIPTION D’UNCOMBAT’ – CHRIS MARKER
PUBLIC SCULPTURE FOR MOSTAR
‘COURSE OF EMPIRE’ – ED RUSCHA
