For its 13th edition, Numéro art unveils its new graphic identity and rubrics, and invites 13 international artists to create 13 original designs.

There's also a no-holds-barred interview with icon Marina Abramovic, who has just opened her retrospective at London's Royal Academy. Another major figure, American artist Theaster Gates, accompanies this issue with his moving exhibition at LUMA Arles, and opens the doors of his Chicago studio to us. Numéro art also followed the iconoclastic and rebellious Lili Reynaud-Dewar as she took over the Palais de Tokyo this autumn.

On the cover of this special Issue 13, Mohamed Bourouissa and the duo formed by legendary American artist Lorna Simpson and French artist Gaëlle Choisne.

The Franco-Algerian is one of the most respected artists of his generation. Celebrated this season at two French museums, he recently presented his first stage production. As for Lorna Simpson, she takes on the role of mentor to Gaëlle Choisne and accompanies her for an exhibition of Reiffers Art Initiatives at the Acacias Art Center during Paris + by Art Basel.

Within the pages of this edition, Pol Taburet, a young French talent jolting the art scene and the winner of the Reiffers Art Initiatives prize for contemporary creation and cultural diversity, invited Numéro Art into his Parisian studio. 

The Frenchman summons Creole quimbois, occult powers and US rap imagery in his hallucinatory and powerful paintings. Numéro Art also met up with British star Anish Kapoor in his studio to view his bloody and visceral works, which took Venice by storm during a brilliant two-part exhibition. Lastly, this issue pays homage to the renowned painter Marlene Dumas, whose carnal canvases masterfully create an enchanting mix between light and shadow in Venice’s Palazzo Grassi.

Reiffers Art Initiatives - (Re)generation Prize exhibition 2024 

"(Re)generation" is the third group show of the Reiffers Art Initiatives Prize

Curated by Vittoria Matarrese, “(Re)generation” brings together five emerging artists from the contemporary scene, selected by the artistic committee: Majd Abdel Hamid, Alex Ayed, Clédia Fourniau, Garance Früh and Aïcha Snoussi. 

Majd Abdel Hamid, Alex Ayed, Clédia Fourniau, Garance Früh and Aïcha Snoussi belong to the same generation, born between the late 80s and early 90s, but what links them is much deeper. Their way of telling the world, the freedom of their narratives and forms, the imaginary elsewhere that each of these artists evokes, proposes a form of regeneration of the gaze, the history and their respective practices.

On the one hand, Clédia Fourniau and Garance Früh strive to destructure the material of their creations. Both artists emphasize a certain physicality, a capacity for works to be impregnated and permeable.

On the other hand, Majd Abdel Hamid, Alex Ayed and Aïcha Snoussi explore the fecundity of images through their practice. Their works are conceived as a call to the open sea, a way of departing from dominant narratives. Despite their very different practices, they all call on fiction, the novel or the invention of alternative rituals, generating new forms and narratives with restorative power.

This year's Reiffers Art Initiatives Prize rewards French artist Clédia Fourniau. 

The artistic committee of Reiffers Art Initiatives has named young French artist Clédia Fourniau winner of the Prize 2024, following Serpas in 2023 and Pol Taburet in 2022. After a 3-year course at the Olivier de Serres school, Clédia Fourniau graduated from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2021 with the congratulations of the jury. Clédia's work explores the gestural dimension of abstract painting, questioning the relationship between body and space, and the conditions of creation and reception of a work of art.

Reiffers Art Initiatives is a foundation created to support young contemporary creation and cultural diversity. 

Reiffers Art Initiatives’ mission is to support France’s new art scene and give it international visibility. It finances and gives exposure to thirty emerging artists every year, who will influence tomorrow’s contemporary art scene.
