Prix Gruppo Campari celebrates young French creation

Dear Shaded Viewers,

After a pleasant meeting at one of my favorite Japanese tea salons, I went to the launch party for the Prix Gruppo Campari with David Herman, aka the money maker, from Standard. The first person that I saw was the President of the Jury, Jean Charles de Castelbajac. He congratulated me on the success of IQONS, he is an IQON and was our 2nd IQON on the site and continues to have a great exchange with other IQONIANS.

Gruppo Campari has created a contest this year for young French artists in order to encourage them. The prize is 15,000 EUROS which will be used for them to create an original piece of art which will then be presented at Show Off, an event paralell with FIAC on the 17-21 October. Prior to that the work will be presented on the 27th September at the Maison Rouge.
