2017, a celebration year

2017 is a birthday year: the New Heads Prize – BNP Paribas Foundation Art Awards celebrates its fifth anniversary while the BNP Paribas Foundation Switzerland blows out its 15 candles.

 Supporting and promoting Young artists

Created in 2012, the New Heads Prize – BNP Paribas Foundation Art Awards celebrates its five years of existence. Five editions that have led to the support of work by more than a dozen young artists, graduates of the Master of Visual Arts at the Haute École d’Art et de Design (HEAD) in Geneva.

Many among them are now major actors of the Swiss Romandie art scene, and even in Switzerland as a whole, such as Josse Bailly, Nelly Haliti, Simone Holliger, Yoan Mudry, Marco Scorti, Ramaya Tegegne, Galaxia Wang, and many others. Each laureate has donated one or more pieces to the Foundation, enhancing its collection of quality contemporary artwork.


With a view to celebrating the fifth anniversary of the Prize, the Foundation is exhibiting these works in the entrance hall of the Bank (2, place de Hollande, Geneva).
