ARTnews in Brief: Vivian Suter Wins 2021 Prix Meret Oppenheim—and More from April 12, 2021

Monday, April 13
Vivian Suter Wins 2021 Prix Meret OppenheimArtist Vivian Suter is among the recipients of the 2021 Swiss Grand Award for Art / Prix Meret Oppenheim, which honors the achievements in the fields of art, architecture and curation in Switzerland and beyond. Each award carries a cash prize of CHF 40,000 ($43,300). Suter, a Swiss-Argentinian painter, is known for her vibrant abstract canvases, which act as studies of the dense nature surrounding her Guatemala studio, as well as her inner self. Her work will be the focus of two solo exhibitions this year: in June at the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid and in November at the Kunstmuseum Luzern in Switzerland, where she will have a retrospective. Fellow recipients are George Descombes for architecture and artist and curator Esther Eppstein for critique and exhibition.
