« Les Ateliers de l’Universel », in partnership with “European Pepinieres de Creation”, is launching an international call for projects aimed for contemporary visual artists and focusing on the concept of the “Universal”, with 15,000 Euros to be divided between the laureats.

This international call for proposals targeting contemporary visual artists, with the aim of highlighting one or more artworks that would symbolize both a richness of diversity and demonstrate an “attachment to universal values”.

The purpose of this call for proposals is:

  • to select a work that will become the emblem to represent the association and which will also represent its values;
  • to select one or more works to exhibit at the “Universal” event in November 2019, at the Musée de l’Homme, in Paris, initiated and produced by “Les Ateliers de l’Universel”.

Laureates & Endowment

Between one and three works will be selected as winning pieces from this open call for proposals. The artwork which wins first prize, will be selected to become one emblem of the association itself, and will be ceded to the association “Ateliers de l’Universel”, upon winning.

The author(s) of the laureate artworks will each receive an endowment. The total amount of the endowment will be 15,000 Euros and will be distributed by the jury, during the deliberation process. The laureate of the first prize will receive at least 10,000 euros.
