As every year, the Ricard Foundation Prize will be awarded during the Yellow Ball next October, during the FIAC, by a jury of collectors, friends of the great contemporary art museums, and curators from previous editions. It consists of the purchase of a work from the winner, which is then offered to the Centre Pompidou, which presents it in its permanent collections.
Note: this year, the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard is strengthening the endowment of the Prize by also financing the realisation of a personal project of the winner abroad. Review of the exhibition opening, visible until October 31st at 12, rue Boissy d’Anglas.
