Congratulations to Nicolas Grenier and Aude Moreau, recipients to the 2016 Visual Arts Excellence Awards presented by the City of Montreal in close partnership with the Association des galeries d’art contemporain (AGAC).

Highlighting the excellence of the creation in the visual arts field, the Prix Pierre-Ayot encourages emerging artists with a $ 5,000 scholarship.
