I dance; I talk; I write; I teach; I make objects, furniture, video installations, and films; I publish feminist magazines. I do all of the above on my own, or with friends, students, or members of my family.

I dance; I talk; I write; I teach; I make objects, furniture, video installations, and films; I publish feminist magazines. I do all of the above on my own, or with friends, students, or members of my family. I have initiated a wide range of approaches—discursive, educational, contemplative, narrative, and fictional—in the works I have produced. My works are not based on a guiding principle and do not focus on a specific theme, but strive to incorporate social and political issues into esthetics and to make the contradictions of such a task tangible. In 2009, Valérie Chartrain, Dorothée Dupuis, and I co-founded the art and culture feminist journal Petunia. I am a professor at the Geneva University of Art and Design (HEAD), where I put together Enseigner comme des adolescents (“Teach Like Teenagers”), an evolving, changing group with which I have carried out several film projects, exhibitions, and seminars. I am also advocating for Wages for Wages Against, a campaign for the fair remuneration of artists in Switzerland, and I seek to make the art world less discriminatory and more representative. I live and work in Grenoble, where I launched Maladie d’amour, a social and emotional experiment that brings together, for one night only, a group of young people for projects, screenings, or conferences by my artist friends in Paris, Vienna, Geneva and elsewhere.

 

Lili Reynaud-Dewar produces protean works and strives to incorporate social and political issues into esthetics. She was awarded the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard Prize (2013) and the Marcel Duchamp Prize (2021). Her work has been shown at the Berlin Biennale (2008), Kunsthalle Basel (2010), the New Museum (2014), the Venice Biennale (2015), Melbourne’s Muma Monash (2018), among others, and is part of many public and private collections, including those of K11 Hong Kong, Pinault, and Centre Pompidou.

ADIAF

The Association for the International Diffusion of French Art brings together 300 collectors of modern art who are fully committed to the creativity quest. It was created in 1994 with the ambition to highlight the flourishing creativity of the French artistic scene and to promote the French art scene throughout the world.
ADIAF has created in 2000 the Prix Marcel Duchamp which is awarded annually to one among four shortlisted artists either born or residing in France and working in the field of visual arts. Organized since its founding in partnership with the Centre Pompidou, this seminal art Prize is considered today one of the most relevant vectors of information on contemporary art in France. Each year, four artists are nominated by an eleven-member committee of ADIAF. One winner is chosen among the four by an international jury consisting of private collectors and directors of major public institutions. The selection committee and the jury are renewed every year.
