Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain

At once a creative space for artists and a place where art and the general public can meet, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain is dedicated to promoting and raising public awareness of contemporary art.

Each year, the Fondation Cartier organizes a program of exhibitions based on either individual artists or themes, and commissions work from artists, thus enriching an important collection.

It also organizes the Nomadic Nights, a rendezvous that focuses on the performing arts, where artists explore links between the visual arts and other forms of contemporary artistic expression.

Exhibitions and the collection itself are frequently sent to institutions abroad, enhancing the Fondation Cartier’s international profile.

Nomadic Nights

Since their inauguration in 1994, Nomadic Nights regularly invite artists from the contemporary scene to take over the exhibition spaces and the Fondation Cartier garden for an evening.

Concerts, screenings, lectures and performances: artistic forms intermingle, creating connections and unexpected encounters.
