Chanel has announced the winners of its biennial Next Prize, which launched in 2021 to ‘accelerate the ideas that advance culture’.

Visual artists Ho Tzu Nyen (Singapore), Dalton Paula (Brazil), Tolia Astakhishvili (Georgia), and Fox Maxy (United States) are among the ten winners.

In addition to a €100,000 (U.S. $107,000) prize, the winners will receive a two-year mentorship and networking opportunities facilitated by Chanel’s cultural partners, including London’s Royal College of Art.

Ho, who represented Singapore at the 54th Venice Biennale, was coy about what he’ll do with the prize money.

‘The next stage of my artistic practice is unknown,’ he said. ‘But I’m happy to dive into it with the increased capacities that this prize has made possible.’

Describing his practice to Ocula earlier this year, Ho said, ‘For me, the best thing about being an artist is that it allows me to create my own rules of operating, thinking, and making. And I can present these understandings, intuitions, sensations, and questions in ways that are impossible in the linear medium of language.’

The full list of this year’s Next Prize winners can be viewed here.

Previous winners include Nigerian artist Precious Okoyomon and art collective Keiken. —[O]
