Thirty Years for Contemporary Art: Volume2



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 second volume relays the voices of important figures who are close to the Fondation Cartier—artists, advisors, art critics, and friends— and who have shaped the history of the institution. Bringing together 2,000 archival images, amongst which many unpublished photographs and rare documents (sketches of exhibition set design, personal archives of artists), this book offers a chronological journey throughout all of the exhibitions, performances, and main events that have taken place in the past 30 years.
