Signaling the start of a vibrant, long-term partnership between Richard Mille and Louvre Abu Dhabi, the Middle East’s leading art museum and one of the world’s leading authorities in art, this collaboration reinforces the bond between visual and horological arts, championing visionary creativity and innovative perspectives on a global scale.

The Richard Mille Art Prize
Louvre Abu Dhabi and Richard Mille jointly announced in 2021 the launch of a new annual exhibition – called Louvre Abu Dhabi Art Here – linked to the creation of The Richard Mille Art Prize. This prize serves as a platform for support and recognition of artists committed to pushing the boundaries of contemporary art within the UAE (United Arab Emirates) and beyond.

Each year, the exhibition will feature the shortlisted artists’ works selected from the submissions received through an open call. The exhibition will be held annually in the Forum, a space of interaction and exchange within Louvre Abu Dhabi dedicated to contemporary art.

The Richard Mille Art Prize in 2021, in alignment with the UAE’s 50th anniversary, explores the theme of ‘Memory, Time and Territory’. Open exclusively to United Arab Emirates based artists for this first year, the exhibition focuses on the talents and perspectives of the country’s citizens and residents on this milestone occasion.

Taking place from 18 November 2021 until 27 March 2022, this first edition marks the arrival of an unmissable annual event for art connoisseurs. Juried by an international panel of renowned art collectors, curators, and critics, one contemporary artist will be selected to become the first-ever recipient of The Richard Mille Art Prize. The award ceremony will take place in January 2022.
