Fondation Cartier 40th anniversary

In 2024, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain is celebrating its 40th anniversary. For its anniversary year, the Fondation Cartier has created an installation showcasing the artists with whom it has had the pleasure of working since its founding, to be displayed in the picture windows of its future premises on the Place du Palais Royal in Paris starting July 12, 2024.

The portraits of some thirty artists and personalities, including the likes of Jean Nouvel, Agnès Varda, Claudia Andujar, Takeshi Kitano, Patti Smith, Sheroanawe Hakihiiwe, Marie Losier and Ron Mueck, will be on view in these seven-meter-high picture windows, a veritable panorama of the history of the institution. Reflecting the Fondation Cartier’s approach to developing its programming over its four decades of existence, the artists represented in this installation hail from diverse disciplines – painting, film, architecture, music, fashion, photography, philosophy, the performing arts and more – and are of all generations and origins.

Conceived in collaboration with the creative studio deValence, this installation will initially be shown along the facades overlooking the Rue de Rivoli and Rue Saint-Honoré, subsequently expanding to the picture windows overlooking the Place du Palais-Royal and the Rue Marengo in 2025.
