Memorial Tribute to the Victims of Slavery

DEADLINE:1 September 2020

On May 10, 2019, the President of the French Republic confirmed his commitment, taken on April 27, 2018—the 170th anniversary of the decree abolishing slavery in the French colonies—to have a Memorial built in Paris to pay tribute to the victims of slavery.

The Memorial will take the form of a permanent work of art located in the Tuileries Garden, on a parcel bordering the Jeu de Paume, between the former royal and imperial residence of the Tuileries and the Hôtel de la Marine.


This call for art submissions is open to all art practices and is targeted at artists or art collectives evolving in the broad field of visual arts (any esthetical and artistic forms, tangible or intangible).


A pre-selection of 3 to 5 artists will be established by the project’s steering committee. The selected artist will be announced on the first half of 2021.
