James Beckett: Herring, winnaar Kunst en Publieke Ruimte 2003
The Prix de Rome is the oldest and largest incentive prize in the Netherlands
for artists and architects up to the age of 35.
The Prix de Rome is awarded in ten disciplines, two of which are awarded
annually. Last year these were Sculpture and Art, and the Public Space.
Following a preliminary selection of the work submitted, four candidates
go through to the final round. They make a new work of art for which
a budget and studio space are made available. The jury awards the
prizes on the basis of the presentation of this work. Ryan Gander
and James Beckett (Art and Public Space) won the Prix de Rome in
