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.

Meurice Prize for Contemporary Art – Lola Gonzalez

Lola Gonzalez is the winner of the 9th edition of the Meurice Prize for Contemporary Art.

Lola Gonzalez presented a work inspired and co-created by Japanese dancer and choreographer Naoyuki Oguri, which explores the idea of community through film and performance art.
