Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain
Initiated in 1984 by Alain Dominique Perrin, President of Cartier International at the time, on a suggestion by the artist Cesar, and directed by Herve Chandes, the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain is a unique example of corporate philanthropy in France. Thirty years later, the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain remains true to the values on which it has based its action and which affirm its identity. It promotes discovery, by revealing young artists to the public by unveiling the secret side of world-renowned artists. It promotes creation through the commissioning and production of works.
