2014 is a year of celebration at the Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art. On October 20 1984, Alain Dominique Perrin, then president of Cartier International, opened an inclusive and multidisciplinary platform to support talented artists, each of them emblematic of their particular disciplines. Thirty years later, with more than 100 exhibitions and 800 works in its initiative, the Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art, reiterates its commitment to the creation, culture and dialogue between the various lines of the artistic work of our time.
From May to September , the public can tour three decades of history, knowing the most emblematic works of artists who have left their mark on the Foundation, on the exhibition Mémoires Vives, to be presented at the Jean Nouvel building in Paris, where there will be seen works by artists ranging from Patti Smith, to Jean-Michel Alberola, Alessandro Mendini, Agnes Varda and David Lynch. Thus, Cartier codifies as driving art institution and lift a monument to Paris, the city that saw it birth.
