For The Pommery Prize, now in its second year, Champagne Pommery recognizes an exceptional presentation of large-scale artwork from The Armory Show’s Platform section with a $20,000 award. In addition to Champagne Pommery Owner and CEO Nathalie Vranken, its jury included Nora Lawrence (Senior Curator, Storm King Art Center) and Emma Lavigne (President, Palais de Tokyo). The 2019 Pommery Prize winner was Lisson Gallery’s presentation of Ryan Gander.
This year, the fair’s section from which the Pommery Prize is selected, Platform, is curated by Anne Ellegood, the Executive Director of the Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. The seven 2020 Platform projects this year are interspersed throughout the full footprint of Piers 90 and 94, activating and in response to The Armory Show’s industrial venue. The Platform theme for 2020 asked exhibitors to consider how techniques of satire and caricature have been used historically in art and literature as sharp tools of social critique. The seven works address the ways in which contemporary visual artists draw from these centuries-old practices, while also imbuing them with fresh perspectives that examine the particular issues of today’s volatile political and cultural climate.
The Pommery Prize continues to pay homage to Madame Pommery’s love for the arts. In addition to the monetary reward, the winning artist of the Pommery Prize will have an opportunity to create a new work of art for an exhibition at Pommery Champagne’s domaine in Reims, France. Since 1882, when Madame Pommery commissioned French sculptor Gustav Navlet to create four sculptures for the walls of their cellars, the venerable producer’s estate has been steeped in arts patronage. Since 2002, Pommery has continued the tradition by opening the Gallo-Roman chalk cellars and making them accessible each year as a platform for artists to express their talents and create unique works of art each September for their “Experience Pommery” exhibitions.
