The award will be presented during the FIAC art fair in Paris on Oct. 26. Past winners of the prize include Thomas Hirschhorn (2000), Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster (2002), Tatiana Trouvé (2007) and Cyprien Gaillard (2010), who currently has a show at MoMA PS1.

This year’s jury is made up of seven international curators, museum directors, artists and collectors:
