The Foundation's Award

Every year since 1999, Fondation Pernod Ricard's Prize has been awarded to an artist from the young French art scene. The Award's exhibition is entrusted to a curator or an artist who has a prospective look at the current art scene in France.

Awarded by a jury composed of the winning artists, the curators of previous awards and collectors, the Award consists of the purchase of a work of the winning artist, offered to the Musée national d'art moderne - Centre Pompidou. It also allows the winning artist to benefit from support for a personal project abroad.

Since 2020, the Fondation Pernod Ricard Award has also been conceived as a one-year companionship with the selected artists, prior to the collective exhibition. During this year, the artists are invited to devise formats and events tailored to their individual needs.

Through its Award, the Foundation works for the recognition of artists under 40 years of age, both among art professionals and a very large public.
