The SOON & R.L.D. Editions Award

The first SOON Paris & R.L.D. Éditions Prize was awarded to Mathieu Dufois during the 2015 edition. A solo exhibition of his work will be held at the fair this year.

SOON PARIS and R.L.D Éditions, printers and art publishers since 1973, value and support contemporary European artists.

We hope to strengthen the position of art prints and to enable artists to explore this medium by using its means to create. They can thereby enhance their experience of multiple artwork.

Our award’s committee includes three R.L.D representatives: its head, Corinne Dutrou, the workshop’s manager, Christian Mameron, and the collection director, Sébastien Desalt. Alongside them, the managing executives of SOON PARIS plus three further committee members, chosen for their skills and interest in contemporary art and publishing, will jointly nominate the candidates.

The winner will be announced on Thursday, November 30th 2017, at the opening reception of SOON PARIS.

The most original feature of this award is that the winner is given carte blanche to create a unique printed artwork of up to 3 x 1.2 meters in R.L.D’s Parisian and Burgundian workshops. A very limited edition of ten copies will also be provided by the publishing company.
