Ricard Foundation Prize – Clément Cogitore

For its 18th edition, the Ricard Foundation Prize gathered works by 8 emerging French artists in an exhibition curated by Isabelle Cornaro. Marked by a strong degree of diversity, the exhibition showcased contemporary iconography through the filter of art, including film, photography, performance, and installations. Awarded on October 21st, the Prize went to Clément Cogitore (represented by Galerie Eva Hober) for his approach that straddles the border between cinema and contemporary art.
