The Carmignac Foundation, created in 2000 on the initiative of Edouard Carmignac, is a corporate foundation that focuses on two main areas: a collection of contemporary art that currently includes more than 300 works and the Photojournalism Prize that annually supports an investigative report that is the subject of an exhibition and a catalogue.
Since June 2018, in partnership with the Carmignac Foundation, an exhibition space accessible to the public, the Villa Carmignac, has been created on the island of Porquerolles, in order to offer temporary exhibitions, a garden inhabited by works specially created for the place as well as cultural and artistic programming.
