Fondation d'entreprise Ricard

  • Fondation d'entreprise Ricard

    The Fondation d’entreprise Ricard is carrying on the art sponsorship work the Ricard company has been engaged in for almost twenty years, and has been a springboard for a whole generation of artists.

    The foundation exists to back today's French art and increase its visibility nationally and internationally. Situated in the heart of Paris, the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard is a venue for exhibitions, creativity and encounters in the context of art in its most contemporary forms.

    Every year the foundation engages curators for six exhibitions by young artists. As a place for the exchange and diffusion of ideas, the foundation also hosts symposia on subjects including contemporary art, sociology, literature and philosophy, as well as performances.

    The Prize Fondation d’entreprise Ricard is awarded by a jury of collectors to an emerging artist in the young French art scene. Its special feature is the purchase of a work by the winner which will appear in the permanent collection of the Centre Pompidou thanks to the donation of the foundation. The Fondation d’entreprise Ricard also offers the prize-winner a chance to produce a personal project abroad.

    In addition the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard provides backing for artist's books and collective publications devoted to the contemporary scene.
