Private visit of the Carmignac Foundation at the Porquerolles Island

Discover the latest exhibition at the Carmignac Foundation and its sculpture park within a private visit followed by a wine tasting & lunch

Carmignac Photojournalism Award – 10 Years of Reportage

The exceptional display of more than 170 photographs showcases ten years of photo reports, spotlighting human rights violations and environmental issues, in different regions of the world.

This retrospective is also a tribute to the courage and independence of the photojournalists who, through their own unique perspectives, have witnessed and shared the irreversible upheavals that the planet is going through.

La Fondation Carmignac

The Foundation, created in 2000 on the initiative of Edouard Carmignac, was opened to the public in Porquerolles, a Mediterranean island like a floating forest on the sea, in June 2018.

Once on the island, the visitor will discover a Provencal farmhouse blended into the landscape. Inside, the spaces expand to reveal 1,500 square meters of exhibition space. Natural light, filtered by a ceiling filled with water, illuminates the spaces hidden beneath the surface. Outside, a 15-hectare garden, conceived by landscape designer Louis Benech, is inhabited by a series of mysterious works inspired by the surroundings.

The Collection, presented and shared since its creation inside the company’s offices, celebrates American art from the 1960s to the 1980s, with iconic works by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Jean-Michel Basquiat. The 20th and 21st centuries are surveyed with the dazzling or more contemplative visions of Gerhard Richter, Willem de Kooning, Martial Raysse, Miquel Barceló or even Ed Ruscha, while the collection opens up new horizons with Zhang Huan, Korakrit Arunanondchai or El Anatsui. Finally, fine art photography and photojournalism complete this singular panorama, reflecting a personal history made of encounters and shared life moments.
