Cartier launched the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain. With its pioneering, visionary approach to patronage, the Fondation Cartier invented a new approach to exhibition-making, multi-disciplinary in nature and characterized by a spirit of curiosity and inquiry.
Over the course of its 30-year engagement with artists, the Fondation Cartier has hosted over 100 exhibitions and commissioned more than 800 works, asserting its bold, free-spirited approach to art.
In 2014, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain celebrates 30 years of a history written hand in hand with artists. For one year, Jean Nouvel’s building will serve as a vibrant arena for artists and works representing everything the Fondation Cartier stands for: creation and discovery, openness to multiple disciplines, progressive voices and ideas.
Exhibition Vivid Memories
Starting on May 10, 2014, Vivid Memories, the first stage of this anniversary year, promises to surprise viewers with a continuously evolving presentation from May to September.
Works such as Marc Newson’s airplane, James Lee Byars’ monumental golden sphere, Panamarenko’s submarine, Raymond Hains’s Brise-lames, Chéri Samba’s paintings, Moebius’s notebooks, Ron Mueck’s sculpture In Bed and Bodys Isek Kingelez’s city will be presented over the weeks and months. The artists themselves have made a point of participating in this event in order to commune with the public through their chosen mediums.
