Alexia Fabre, Audrey Illouz and Cristiano Raimondi, who have been invited since last fall to discover the work of students from the Beaux-Arts de Paris, have selected 45 candidates to be exhibited in the glass courtyard of the Palais des Études. This exhibition is an opportunity to reveal the creation of young artists from the School to art professionals, galleries, critics, curators and directors of institutions. All artistic practices are represented: painting, drawing and sculpture but also performance, video and photography. Scenography: Christiano Raimondi and students from the École nationale supérieure d'architecture Paris-Malaquais, participants in the seminar L'entour, histoire et technique de la scénographie d'exposition.


Scenography: Cristiano Raimondi assisted by Julien Rodier, with Chloé Redelinger, Charlotte Vermeulen, Lina Diouri, Paola Majdalani, Paula Manuel Rubio and Syedha Hoosna Mohamed Kamaludeen, students at the Ecole nationale supérieure Paris-Malaquais

Scenography created with the support of the Bredin Prat Endowment Fund for Contemporary Art.


On the occasion of Crush, three partners: Rubis Mécénat, patron of this exhibition, Catherine and Mamadou- Abou Sarr and this year Lefranc-Bourgeois, wished to reaffirm their support for young creation. Production aid, acquisitions by a major private collection, a research residency at the Villa Albertine and an endowment in kind (fine arts products) will be awarded by these three partners to five winners, to reward the talent of our students. The prizes will be awarded by professional juries.


Prize winners :

Rubis Patronage Prize
After deliberation by the jury, Hélène JANICOT, a student in her 4th year at the Hélène Delprat and Ann Veronica Janssens workshops, is awarded an endowment of €7,000, as well as a grant of up to €20,000 for the production of a work designed especially for the Saint-Eustache church, to be presented in autumn 2022.  It also benefits from critical and curatorial support, with one of the three Crush curators specially recruited by Rubis Mécénat for the operation (Audrey Illouz in 2022).

Sarr Prize
The winning artists, Abdelhak BENALLOU, Jérémie DANON and Sofía SALAZAR ROSALES, each receive an endowment of €5,000. Among them, Abdelhak BENALLOU will also benefit from a one-month research residency in Chicago worth $8,000 with the Villa Albertine, a networked cultural institution serving the arts and ideas.

Lefranc-Bourgeois Prize
For more than 300 years, Lefranc-Bourgeois has been accompanying artists, innovating and committing itself to make their creativity shine. Rayan YASMINEH, a student in his 5th year at the Djamel Tatah workshop, is the winner of this new prize and receives a donation of products and technical advice worth €2,500.
