Foundations

Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain

Born in 1984, in May 1994, the foundation moved to Paris, into the architecture of glass and steel that had been created for it by Jean Nouvel.

Located at 261 boulevard Raspail in the 14th arrondissement in Paris and directed by Hervé Chandès, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain is a unique example of corporate philanthropy in France.

Designed by the architect Jean Nouvel, the foundation houses exhibitions, conferences and artistic productions come to life. Exhibitions and the collection itself are frequently sent to institutions abroad, enhancing the Fondation Cartier’s international profile. The Fondation Cartier embraces all creative fields and genres of contemporary art, ranging from design to photography, from painting to video art and from fashion to performance art.
