The first thing that attracts the attention of this foundation is its futuristic building. It is a work of the famous architect Frank Gehry located in the middle of the Jardin d'Acclimatation. The mission since 2014 of this open space is to bring art and culture closer to everyone. To this end, it maintains an offer based on exhibitions of modern and contemporary art and on events such as concerts, shows and presentations.
The Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain
The Cartier Foundation focuses on contemporary art and encompasses all disciplines: painting, photography, design or sculpture. Its cultural offer combines exhibitions, as well as the so-called Nomadic Nights, an event that revolves around the performing arts. Located on Raspail Boulevard, it is hosting an interesting exhibition until next January entitled 'Trees', an exhibition in which art and nature go hand in hand.
