For the eighth cycle of the award, as the critically important issue of global sustainability reaches a level of greater urgency, the artists shortlisted for the Prix Pictet present Hope as a fragile and elusive quality that is nevertheless capable of overcoming despair. They reflect the great hope of the Prix Pictet that art can triumph where words alone have failed.

This panel discussion will run from 4.30pm to 5.30pm, including plenty of time for questions.
