British Artist Lynette Yiadom-Boakye Received The Main Prize Of The Future Generation Art Prize 2012

Awarding Rayyane Tabet they stated: "The jury awards Rayyane Tabet a special prize for his close examination and intelligent articulation of the complex social and historical context of his home in Lebanon. Referencing architectural languages, Tabet succeeds in transforming and communicating an intimate and personal experience to a wider public, by multiplying an original wooden toy set to become a field of 12,000 concrete sculptural copies of its parts, an abstract and urban landscape of models."

And awarding Marwa Arsanios jurors said: "The jury awards Marwa Arsanios a special prize for the experimental nature of her installation and performative lecture. This project which involved the creation of an artist-book based on a popular Egyptian journal of the late 60ties questions the passage from decolonisation to the myths of the spacerace while underlining the continuity of gender and justice towards women. Her work places the viewer /listener in a position of intimacy with the reader/performer which instantiates the visitor an an important material of the artwork."

Tim Marlow (Director of Exhibitions, White Cube, Great Britain) was the Award Ceremony presenter.
