2012/2013 New Mentors Announced
Following a weekend of celebration and international gathering in New York City for this last year partnership of Mentors and Proteges participating in the Rolex Arts Initiative program, the 2012/2013 Mentors were announced.
Some of the world’s greatest artists will gather in New York City in November to celebrate the culmination of their year of creative exchange with emerging talents in their fields. Six major artists – Trisha Brown, Brian Eno, Hans Magnus Enzensberger, Anish Kapoor, Peters Sellars and Zhang Yimou – were paired with six young talents by the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative for a year of dialogue and artistic collaboration.
As apart of a night hosted by Bertrand Gros, Chairman of the board of Rirectors of Rolex SA, and also held at New York City’s Lincoln Center, the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative has announced the names of the six internationally recognized master artists who will serve as mentors in dance, film, literature, music, theatre and visual arts in 2012-2013.
The mentors are: Canadian author Margaret Atwood, French theatre director Patrice Chéreau, Brazilian singer/songwriter Gilberto Gil, South African visual artist William Kentridge, Taiwanese choreographer Lin Hwai-min and American film editor and sound designer Walter Murch. And the Rolex Arts Initiative has already begun a worldwide search to find the new protégés.
The protégés will be announced in mid-2012 and the mentoring year will begin soon afterwards. As part of the program, each protégé receives $25,000 to support his or her participation in the programme. At the conclusion of the mentoring year, each protégé is eligible for an additional $25,000 for the creation of a new work.
