Lee Ufan Arles and Guerlain launch 2nd edition of Art & Environment Prize

Perfumes & Cosmetics


Lee Ufan Arles and Maison Guerlain joined to create the Art & Environment Prize in 2023. The annual award honors works with universal significance and a philosophical depth that resonates with the ethos of Lee Ufan, coupled with a connection to environmental themes, aligning with the values upheld by Maison Guerlain.  

The exhibition “À Ténèbres” by Djabril Boukhenaïssi, winner of the first Art & Environment Prize, will be presented at Espace MA by Lee Ufan Arles from July 1 to September 1, 2024.  Centered on the disappearance of night, the exhibition brings together paintings and engravings done by the artist during his residency. 

For this second edition, open to all artists worldwide in all artistic disciplines, with no age limits or prerequisite qualifications, the jury will be chaired by Lee Ufan and include members of Lee Ufan Arles and Guerlain, joined by prominent personalities. Representing Maison Guerlain are Gabrielle Saint-Genis, President and CEO, Ann Caroline Prazan, Art, Culture and Heritage Director, and Clément Renaudet, Head of Climate and Biodiversity.   

The winning artist will benefit from support and a grant from Lee Ufan Arles over a six- to eight-week period in early 2025, along with a unique workspace in the heart of Arles.
