In 2012 a retrospective, Visual Fictions, was put on at the Kunstverein in Hannover, and the artist's work featured in group shows in Moscow, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Dresden and Oviedo. His work is on show as part of Fantastic 2012 in Lille, through 13 January. In 2013 he can also be seen in a solo show at FRAC Paca, Marseille, and at the Sammlung Goetz in Munich, as well as in group shows at the Kunstmuseum, Bonn and the Middelheimmuseum in Antwerp. He is represented by the Continua gallery in France, Italy and China; by Ron Mandos in Amsterdam; Krinzinger in Vienna, and Marianne Boesky in New York.

The documents concerning the three artists will be given to an international jury composed of Manuela Alexejew (Germany), Paolo Barillari (Italy), Laurent Dassault (France), Didier Grumbach (France), Dominique Guyot (France), Susan Harris (USA), Brigitte Peers (Belgium), as well as Daniel and Florence Guerlain.

The award ceremony will take place on the 11th of April, 2013 during the Salon du Dessin at the Palais de la Bourse. The winner will receive an endowment of 15.000 Euros and the two other selected artists will receive 2.500 Euros each. A work by the winner is offered by the Foundation to the Graphic Arts Department of the National Museum of Modern Art – Centre Pompidou.

The Prize
This prize is reserved for both French and foreign artists, whether they live in France or not, but who sustain a privileged cultural link with France (through exhibitions, studies…) and for whom drawing constitutes a significant part of their work, whatever their main mode of expression.

Awarded for the first time in 2007 and biennial until 2009, the Prize honours artists who make any unique work on paper or cardboard using graphic means: crayon, charcoal, red chalk, ink, wash tint, gouache, watercolour, pastels and felt… including collages and wall drawings but excluding computer and mechanical processes.

The candidates are selected by a committee composed of the two founders, Daniel and Florence Guerlain, and of four members chosen for their competence and interest in contemporary art. Following a working meeting with the artists, visits to studios and analysis, the committee selects three artists whose work is presented to a jury that changes with each prize and responsible for choosing the winner.

Created in 1996, the Daniel & Florence Guerlain Contemporary Art Foundation organized exhibitions in the family property for ten years, before Daniel and Florence Guerlain decided to devote the Foundation's activities to the Contemporary Drawing Prize. The award receives the support of Neuflize OBC, The House Guerlain, Axa Art, Artcurial, Loticis, Château Seguin and the Foundation's Cercle des Amis.
