The Ricard Foundation for Contemporary Art is a great sponsor of the young French art scene and has been so for as long as 20 years.

As part of its philanthropic activities towards young French contemporary artists, the Ricard Foundation is about to announce the winner of its 18th prize (the announcement will be made on the 21st of October). Works of the eight artists selected by Isabelle Cornaro (artist and prize winner herself in 2010) are set in the foundation’s beautiful exhibition area and in an adjoining cinema as well.

The opportunity is too good to take the pulse of the emerging French artistic creation and to witness the evolution of contemporary art in France. The exhibited works, both filmic, pictorial or installations, gather around the question of “image” and the way it can be used.

The task will not be easy for the jury of collectors and curators. We’ll go ahead and predict Julien Crépieux will get the award even if we had a real “coup de coeur” for the outstanding work of Louise Sartor.

Make your predictions!
