ABSA L’ATELIER (article first published : 2007-03-5)

artSPACE Durban will host the KZN Regional exhibition of the prestigious ABSA L'Atelier Art Competition 2007 in its Main Gallery.

The competition is held annually for artists between the ages of 21 and 35. This award not only ensures South Africa's emerging artists of recognition, but also affords them the opportunity to develop their talents abroad.

Eleven prizes are awarded: The overall winner receives R100,000 in total from Absa as well as a return air ticket to Paris, France. The prize money must be used for a time of study of at least three months, but not more than six months, in the studio apartment purchased for this purpose at the Cité Internationale des Arts. The money will be made available when the winner leaves for Paris.

Four additional merit prizes of R20,000 each will be awarded. The top ten finalists will receive R1,000 each.

The Alliance Française, the French Institute and the French Embassy are sponsoring the Gerard Sekoto Award for the most promising artist with an income of less than R60,000 per annum. This prize consists of a return air ticket to Paris, three months' stay in the Cité Internationale des Arts, nationwide touring exhibitions, training in French and commission for a poster for the exhibition. The total value of the award is approximately R80,000.

The exhibition runs from March 19 to 29. artSPACE durban is in Millar Road next to the Waste Centre in Umgeni Road.
