Published by the Musée de l’Elysée, this book presents the projects of the third Prix Elysée’s eight nominees. Laia Abril, Mathieu Asselin, Claude Baechtold, Alexandra Catiere, Alinka Echeverría, Gregory Halpern, Nicola Lo Calzo and Luis Carlos Tovar were selected by the museum from among almost 325 candidates from all over the world. They each received a contribution 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. A kind of "making-of", this collective book aims to highlight the production side of the projects by focusing on models, ideas, diagrams, preparatory images and other exchanges between artists and curators.
For this third edition, the Musée de l'Elysée lifts the veil on the creative processes of the eight nominees of the 2018-2020 Prix Elysée.
The Nominees’ Book is available online and in the the Musée de l'Elysée’s bookshop.
