The Franco-Algerian artist Kader Attia has won the sixth edition of the Joan Miró Prize. The prize, which is awarded by Fundació Joan Miró and Obra Social ”la Caixa”, is one of the most prestigious and generous contemporary art awards in the world.


The jury highlighted the breadth of his artistic research, especially with regard to the lingering effects of colonialism, his encyclopedic elaboration of the notion of “repair,” and his passionate engagement with current affairs.


”la Caixa” Foundation will provide the cash prize of €70,000 and cover the cost of producing a monographic exhibition of Attia’s work, to be held in 2018 at Fundació Joan Miró.
