Caroline Mesquita is the winner of the 19th edition of Fondation d’entreprise Ricard Prize, curated by Anne-Claire Schmitz.

Created in 1999, the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard Prize was the first one to be awarded to emerging talents in the young French art scene. The Fondation d’entreprise Ricard Prize is awarded by a jury of art collectors, patrons of major contemporary art museums, and the curators of previous Fondation d’entreprise Ricard Prize exhibitions. 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 two-month residency in partnership with FLAX (France Los Angeles Exchange) Foundation in 2018.

This pioneering approach has thus helped to develop the reputations of a large number of artists in France and abroad.

The previous winners of the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard Prize are: Didier Marcel (1999), Natasha Lesueur (2000), Tatiana Trouvé (2001), Boris Achour (2002), Mathieu Laurette (2003), Mircea Cantor (2004), Loris Gréaud (2005), Vincent Lamouroux (2006), Christophe Berdaguer & Marie Péjus (2007), Raphaël Zarka (2008), Ida Tursic & Wilfried Mille (2009), Isabelle Cornaro (2010), Benoit Maire (2010), Adrien Missika (2011), Katinka Bock (2012), Lili Reynaud Dewar (2013), Camille Blatrix (2014), Florian Pugnaire & David Raffini (2015), Clément Cogitore (2016).
