The 2016 Praemium Imperiale International Arts Award has been given to photographer Cindy Sherman, sculptor Annette Messager, architect Paulo Mendes da Rocha, and filmmaker Martin Scorsese.
The honor, now in its twenty-eighth year, is regarded as one of the most prestigious prizes in art, architecture, and film. Recent Golden Lion winner at the Venice Biennale for Architecture, Paulo Mendes da Rocha was recently interviewed for Border Crossings’ Issue 138: Art + Architecture by collaborating editor and architect Eduardo Aquino.
Issue 138: Art + Architecture will be launching in Montréal at the Canadian Centre for Architecture on September 24 at 2pm. Join us in the Bookstore for a panel discussion on the contents and the state of art and architecture with CCA Founding Director Phyllis Lambert, Editor Meeka Walsh, collaborating editors Eduardo Aquino and Neil Minuk, contributor Peter Sealy and Robert Enright.
