SLICK celebrates its 5th year !
To celebrate it’s fifth year, Slick is moving!
After two years at the CentQuatre, SLICK will be taking over a new space just minutes away from
the Grand-Palais. SLICK 10 will be set between two of the most important French institutions
for contemporary art, the Palais de Tokyo and the Museum of Moderne Art, allowing for the creation
of shared events bewtween SLICK and those two partners.
After SLICK-Berlin in 2009, an event focused on performance art in collaboration
with the Point Ephémère for the 20th year of the fall of the Berlin Wall, SLICK is launching
Galleries selected for this project will propose a focus on artistic creation in the Asian, Indian,
Middle-Eastern and generally Oriental world. The fair will showcase the vitality and diversity
of an oriental artistic voca- bulary. By exhibiting SLICK Orient in the fair, a dialogue between East
and West is being proposed.
The ARTE/Slick Prize will recognize the talent and creativity of an emerging contemporary artist.
Based on all the proposals presented by exhibiting galleries, one artist will be selected by a jury
of experts chaired by President of Arte, Jérome Clément.
The winner will be awarded a prize of 5,000 euros.
In 2009, the winner was Erik Sep from the Gist Gallery.
