AWARDS

CURATORIAL RESEARCH GRANT
AFRICA PROJECTS
the winners

The Rencontres d’Arles and the Institut français have awarded the second Africa projects curatorial research grant to UNTITLED DUO (Soukaina Aboulaoula & Yvon Langué, Morocco and Cameroon) for IF A TREE FALLS IN A FOREST, a project that looks into issues
involving perception, representation and knowledge in African photography—or how photography aims to document silences and lacunae.
The winners receive a €5,000 research grant. At the end of the research period, if the Rencontres d’Arles validates the project’s feasibility they will be awarded a €15,000 budget for a 2021 exhibition in Arles.

This year, the THROUGH THE LENS COLLECTIVE (Michelle Harris & Michelle Loukidis, South Africa) receives special mention for its Postcard Africa project.
This distinction offers the winners the chance to participate in the Rencontres d’Arles 2021 opening week.
