Tribal Art Book Prize (PILAT) 2015

From 15 October until 10 November 2015, you can vote for the fifth time for your favorite African or Oceanic art book of the year. This award is organized by Tribal Art magazine in partnership with Sotheby’s. Except for the honor, winners receive a substantial endowment of advertising and editorial space in the publications of both organizers.

A jury has preselected six books (three in French and three in English – see below) of which you can vote your favorite here. The two winning books will be announced early December at an award ceremony, which will be held at Sotheby’s in Paris. You can find more information about the Tribal Art Book Prize and its jury here.

Especially for the English titles, it is a tough choice this year, as the three preselected books are all excellent. As for the French selection, one my favorite publications of this year, Pierre Amrouche’s Regards de masques didn’t even make it to the initial selection.
