TextWork is an online platform that publishes monographic texts by international authors on artists from the French scene.

Available in French and English, these thoroughly documented texts are also distributed on international critical platforms. By soliciting monographic studies that are sometimes the first of that scale for the artists, the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard initiates new meetings between artists and authors. This promotes the international circulation of French artists’ work, and makes the bet that these conversations will continue well beyond the text. The project is supported by a consultative editorial committee consisting of Mélanie Bouteloup, Thomas Boutoux, Marie Canet and Mathilde Villeneuve. This editorial project provides a forum for ambitious art criticism, and is part of the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard’s policy of supporting the French scene. It was conceived in partnership with the Ministry of Culture.

Once a month, art-agenda publishes a Meta text, in collaboration with TextWork.
