FONDATION CARTIER POUR L'ART CONTEMPORAIN - Paris
Marie Perennes, Curator
Marie Perennes is Curator at the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain, a contemporary art museum in the 14th arrondissement of the French capital of Paris. 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.
