Created in 2006 in memory of Jean-Pierre Latour (1951-2005), the Jean-Pierre-Latour Prize is awarded yearly to a graduate or under-graduate student studying at École Multidisciplinaire de l’images (ÉMI) in order to encourage the development of critical thought in writing a text related to practices of art and museology. Jean-Pierre Latour was an art critic and a part-time teacher at ÉMI from 1985 to 2005, and from 2000 to 2005, he was also a member of the editorial committee of ESPACE sculpture magazine, now called ESPACE art actuel, which in 2009, published the posthumous work Jean-Pierre Latour, critique d’art : voir et comprendre. When this first text was published, ÉMI and the part-time teacher’s union of Université de Québec en Outaouais, who award this prize, entered into a partnership with ESPACE, which has resulted in the prize-winning text being published in the magazine each year.
