BARCELONA.- The Vietnamese-American artist is the winner of the eighth Joan Miró Prize, one of the most prestigious contemporary art accolades in the world, which this year is being awarded by the Fundació Joan Miró with the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF). The jury placed special value on the social, political and environmental commitment of Nguyen's work, which addresses challenging themes related to history, collective memory and the impact of colonialism through rigorous and poetic art projects in which he combines the moving image and sculpture. The SNF is funding the cash prize and the production of a solo show of Nguyen's work, to be held in 2024 at the Fundació Joan Miró.

Marko Daniel, Director of the Fundació Joan Miró, and Alexandros Kambouroglou, Global Programs Director of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), have announced the artist awarded the 2023 Joan Miró Prize. Tuan Andrew Nguyen (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, 1976) has been selected as the winner in this, the eighth edition of the prize, which is awarded every two years. The winners in previous editions are: Olafur Eliasson (2007), Pipilotti Rist (2009), Mona Hatoum (2011), Roni Horn (2013), Ignasi Aballí (2015), Kader Attia (2017) and Nalini Malani (2019).

The members of the 2023 Joan Miró Prize jury are: Hoor Al Qasimi, President and Director of the Sharjah Art Foundation, United Arab Emirates; Katerina Gregos, Artistic Director of the National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST), Athens, Greece; Haeju Kim, Senior Curator at the Singapore Art Museum; Ann-Sofi Noring, former Co-Director of the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Sweden, and currently a member of the Board of the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts; and Marko Daniel, Director of the Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona.

The jury reached a consensus to award the prize to Tuan Andrew Nguyen, applauding the extraordinary commitment, depth and imagination of his oeuvre, qualities in keeping with the values characteristic of Joan Miró's work.
