The Foundation

True to Paul Ricard’s engagement with artists, but also the Pernod Ricard company’s values of conviviality and generosity, the Fondation is resolutely dedicated to emerging art.

Created in 1998 and directed by Antonia Scintilla since 2023, Fondation Pernod Ricard actively contributes to the development of art scenes in France on the national and international levels.

The Fondation has been installed since 2021 near the Gare Saint-Lazare in Paris. With no collection, its identity is forged by the men and women who
bring it to life everyday – including artists, curators, authors, and intellectuals. It thus reflects the diversity of research and creation and vibrates to the
rhythm of their variations.

Convinced that art is a vector of emancipation and social harmony, Fondation Pernod Ricard aims to promote today’s artistic creation in all its forms and to render it accessible to all, free of charge. To achieve this, it runs a varied programme of exhibitions and events, upholds an exacting editorial policy, and supports numerous events beyond its walls.

Since 1999, it has awarded the Prix Fondation Pernod Ricard, the first of its kind to be created in France, granted each year to young artists of the contemporary scene.

In January 2024, it inaugurated Aperto, a research and experimentation space located in immediate proximity to the Fondation’s exhibition spaces.
