The Fondation d'entreprise Ricard presents its 18th annual Prize curated by Isabelle Cornaro, Paris
"The Prize exhibition, featuring works by eight artists displayed in the Foundation's own premises and the adjoining cinema, highlights not only the diversity of artistic practices on the art scene but above all the prevalence of contemporary iconography drawing on images bearing some relation to current affairs or simply marked by the information circuit. The artists also share a fascination with the original context of the forms they work with and how they are transformed in and through the work of art. They can be said to share an interest in montage, both in the actual process of editing—for instance, using framing devices to pin down bodily movements or retain only material essential to the narrative—and as alterations to temporal continuity, questioning how narrative segments are arranged in succession. The works on display, whether films, static visual art, performances, or installations, are thus on the cusp between capturing movement and pinning it down, between representation and incarnation. In this sense, they meet a desire to create visual situation."

About the Prize
The Fondation d'entreprise Ricard Prize will be awarded on October 21, 2016. The Prize is awarder by a jury of art collectors to one of the emerging artists selected by Isabelle Cornaro: Anne Imhof, Clarisse Hahn, Clément Cogitore, Julien Crépieux, Louise Sartor, Marie Voignier, Mélanie Matranga, and Will Benedict.

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. More info here.
