The competition for this year’s Prix Marcel Duchamp, France’s top art prize, ended with a win for Kapwani Kiwanga, who is known for her installations about the legacies of colonialism. The Paris-based, Canadian-born artist will now take home €35,000 ($41,000).

Bernard Blistène, the director of the Centre Pompidou in Paris, said in a statement, “The richness and complexity of Kapwani Kiwanga’s project, bordering on a reflection between anthropology and art, opens up a vast poetic and political program, a true laboratory of today’s thought on memory and archives as sources of the world’s transfiguration.”
