On Thursday October 31, artist Rory Pilgrim (Bristol, 1988) received the Prix de Rome Visual Arts 2019 from the Dutch Minister of Education, Culture and Science, Ingrid van Engelshoven, in the presence of Queen Máxima. Pilgrim received this award for his new film The Undercurrent (2019-ongoing). The award comes with a 40,000 Euros cash prize and a work period at the American Academy in Rome. The Prix de Rome is awarded once every two years to a talented visual artist in the Netherlands. 
The other nominees for this year’s Prix de Rome besides Rory Pilgrim were Esiri Erheriene-Essi, Femke Herregraven and the artist duo Sander Breure & Witte van Hulzen. All finalists were judged on the basis of new work realised during a five-month work period. The exhibition with the work of the nominated artists will be on show at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam until March 20, 2020.
 
The 2019 Prix de Rome is accompanied by a publication by Jap Sam Books, in cooperation with Mondriaan Fund. The artists are introduced by the authors Maarten Buser, Brenda Tempelaar and Sophia Zürcher. In an introductory essay, the art historian Sacha Bronwasser connects the work of the nominees to current developments in the world around us, and in the artworld in particular. Lesley Moore made the design for the publication.
