Dewar and Gicquel win Marcel Duchamp Prize

After Spike Island hosted their first solo show in the UK earlier this year, we're delighted to hear that Daniel Dewar and Grégory Gicquel have won the 2012 Marcel Duchamp prize.

Established in 2000 by the Adiaf (Association pour la Diffusion Internationale de l’Art Français) in partnership with the Centre Pompidou and FIAC, the Prix Marcel Duchamp is intended 'to promote the international recognition of artists working in France, in the domain of visual and fine arts'. It's broadly equivalent to the Turner Prize here in the UK, with the winners receiving €35,000  and funding for an exhibition of their work at the Centre Pompidou. A major award then for Dewar and Gicquel - and for anyone who missed their Crêpe Suzette exhibition here at Spike Island, you can now look forward to seeing their work in Paris soon.
