It will publish its decision in the last two weeks of November 2018, at which time the artist will undertake to production the work.
In the last edition, the artist Belén Uriel was awarded the 6th Audemars Piguet Award for the production of a work of art with her work In Dandanah, presented by the Lisboa gallery Madragoa.
