Canvascollectie/Collection RTBF: and the winners are…

Almost 8.000 artists participated, with 24.000 works of art, for that nationwide (Belgium) search for new talent (contemporary art), called Canvascollectie/Collection RTBF. A national jury selected 197 ‘finalists’ for an exhibition in Bozar (Brussels). And tonight Brussels duo Patrick Mascaux & Christine Wilmès were elected the winners of the grand prize. They were awarded 10.000 euro for their triptych Distant paradise (one photo & two videos). You’ll find the other prizewinners and all info after the jump.
