Richard Mille Art Prize

Louvre Abu Dhabi expands list of applicants for Richard Mille Art Prize

The Louvre Abu Dhabi has announced the expansion of the selection criteria for the Richard Mille Art Prize. The US$ 60,000 prize, launched four years ago in the capital, has until now been open only to artists from the six Gulf Cooperation Council countries – Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

But this year’s competition will be open to artists from Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Sudan and Tunisia. The theme for the 2024 competition has been announced as “Awakening” and the deadline for submission is 21 April. The selected works will be exhibited at Art Here 2024 at the Louvre Abu Dhabi and the best work, according to the jury, will receive the grand prize.

The prize, established in collaboration with Swiss luxury watch brand Richard Mille, aims not only to support artists but also to highlight talent and unite cultures in the region.

Artists planning to apply for the competition are encouraged to focus on sculptures and audio-visual installations suitable for open spaces and related to the architecture of the Louvre Abu Dhabi.

Once entries have been received, a jury of art experts will shortlist the entries for Art Here 2024, which will run from 20 September to 15 December. The winner of the Richard Mille Art Prize will be announced on the last day of the exhibition.
