The Fondation Cartier expresses Cartier’s commitment to the arts as a corporate patron. A pioneer in the field, Cartier invests on an unrivalled scale to promote the art of its time. From its inception in 1984, it has established a long-term commitment to artists of all nationalities.
For Cartier, patronage is not just a one-time deal based on current trends and movements, but an enduring choice that is constantly reaffirmed. Cartier has developed a different kind of patronage through its exhibitions, its collection, and its production of artwork. Its keen interest in the arts is especially visible in its commissions policy: a key feature of patronage, commissions reflect a total commitment to artistic production, from the moment of conception to the finished work.
The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain enables Cartier to maintain its image as a company attuned to the latest creative innovations, providing a forum where freedom and originality can thrive.
