Space

The theme for the seventh cycle of the Prix Pictet is Space - a theme that offers a wide range of creative possibilities and a strong set of connections to the Prix Pictet's overriding theme of sustainability. The Prix Pictet Jury includes three new members - winner of Prix Pictet Disorder Valérie Belin, the economist and author Dambisa Moyo and the renowned photographer Sebastião Salgado. The artists shortlisted for the seventh cycle were unveiled at an evening screening at the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris on 10 November 2016 and can be viewed here. At an event at London's Victoria and Albert Museum Richard Mosse was revealed as the winner of the seventh Prix Pictet for his series Heat Maps.
