Thirty Years for Contemporary Art: Volume1



For its 30th anniversary, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain has published a box set of two lavishly illustrated books recounting its history through its most significant values: boldness, avid curiosity, and commitment to the artists.

The first volume reflects the unique character of this place of creation and encounters, which was the first to support artists and offer a program open to all fields of contemporary thinking. Featuring interviews with the major figures of the Fondation Cartier’s history, this book traces back 30 years of exhibitions and outstanding events. It also highlights the many facets of the glass and steel building on Boulevard Raspail, ever changing with time, with the seasons and in relation to the exhibitions it has housed. This incredibly flexible space is an eternal source of inspiration for the artists whom it welcomes.
