Frederique Loutz’s drawing on view at Centre Pompidou – Paris

Mayeur Projects is happy to announce that Frédérique Loutz is a member of artists’ selection held for the exhibition organized by MNAM Centre Pompidou for the 10th anniversary of the Prize of the Foundation Daniel and Florence Guerlain for the contemporary drawing. A reception will take place on Tuesday, June 20th in the Centre Pompidou.

It was in 1996 that collectors Florence and Daniel Guerlain created their contemporary art foundation at Mesnuls, southwest of Paris, which staged thematic exhibitions and organised engraving workshops. In 2004, their interests changed and their support was redirected to promoting contemporary drawing. In 2006 they established a prize that was awarded for the first time the following year. The biggest prize awarded for contemporary drawing, this year it celebrated its tenth anniversary. The prize has helped to bring attention to artists of the first rank, often very early in their careers and with very little real visibility in France. The shortlist ranges internationally and does not neglect non-Western artists. Thanks to its quality, and thanks to the generosity of Florence and Daniel Guerlain, the works of several of the winning artists, hitherto absent from the national collections, have been acquired by the Centre Pompidou.

“For an art historian, to work with Mayeur Projects in New Mexico is a real opportunity. We are on the lands of the historic land art but also on those of the advanced research regarding ecology, a really big contemporary universal cause. I finish at the moment a work for French “Actes Sud” publisher, entitled “An ecological Art”. Plastic creation and Anthropocene: an immersion in the American West, the particularly sensitive zone since the 1970s in conservation and in the environmental protection, offers the opportunity to meet numerous local actors, and to exchange, in the frame in particular inter-university debates were set up by Mayeur Projects. Finally, meeting artists, numerous in the perimeter Albuquerque-Santa-Fe-Las Vegas, is always a big value for a first-hand work” Paul Ardenne
