"One young artist in each discipline will be selected as a protégé for 12 months of one-to-one collaboration with leading artists Olafur Eliasson, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Michael Ondaatje, Alexei Ratmansky, Kaija Saariaho, Jennifer Tipton and Peter Zumthor.
The finalists, who range from 22 to 38 years of age, were selected from 154 nominees. They come from 21 countries, with all regions of the world represented: Asia (four finalists), Europe (six), North America (three), South America (five), Africa (five) and Middle East (two).
'During each cycle of the Arts Initiative, we have the privilege of meeting dynamic, emerging artists from around the world,' said Rebecca Irvin, head of philanthropy at Rolex. 'Every one of the finalists being considered has already been recognized for a growing body of work and exceptional promise. We anticipate great things in each of their careers and eagerly await the mentors’ decisions to discover which seven of these artists will be selected as protégés.'"
