Anderson was chosen from among seven artists nominated for this year’s Prix SAM deliberations of the 2023 Scientific Committee.
Established in 2009, the SAM Prize for Contemporary Art is given to a French plastic and visual artist each year in December following consideration by the scientific committee, who presents a project for a non-European nation (excluding North America and Europe). The 20,000 euro reward entails a solo show in Paris in the months that follow the journey, a visibility that helps build the artist's reputation among the public and experts in the art industry. The Prix SAM travels award-winning artists across the globe to engage with diverse contexts and execute projects beyond their cultural borders. The intention is to highlight findings and research in areas that are less well-known while also posing questions.
