Rose Lowder has just received the AWARE Outstanding Merit prize 2023, attributed to women artists with a career spanning over 40 years. Her nomination has been proposed by Salma Mochtari, an independent researcher and curator.
The winner of the Outstanding Merit prize 2023 will receive a €10,000 grant, thanks to the continued support of the French Ministry of Culture. In partnership with Manuella Éditions, AWARE will publish a book-length interview with the artist, documenting her contribution to the history of art of the twentieth century and allowing her to reflect on her career in her own words.
Since their creation in 2016, the AWARE prizes have shone a new light on the careers of women artists and increased recognition of their work. To reward the work of women artists on the French scene, to respond to the lack of visibility in France and abroad, and to highlight their works and the longevity of their careers, beyond stereotypes: these are the objectives of the AWARE prizes. Through these prizes, AWARE is committed to supporting the laureates over the long term, through the creation of publications, exhibitions and offering production assistance.
