The Nominees’ Book 2020-2022

Published by the Musée de l’Elysée and supported by Parmigiani Fleurier, this book presents the eight nominated projects of the fourth Prix Elysée. Alexa Brunet, Arguiñe Escandón & Yann Gross, Magali Koenig, Thomas Mailaender, Moises Saman, Assaf Shoshan, Alys Tomlinson, and Kurt Tong were selected by the museum from among more than 250 candidates from all over the world. They each received a cash prize of CHF 5,000 and were given carte blanche to launch a new project, the initial results of which are brought together in this collective publication. As a kind of “making-of,” this collective book offers a look at each artist’s project development process.
