Cartier Foundation

Created in 1984 by Alain Dominique Perrin, then president of Cartier International, at the suggestion of the artist César, the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain is a unique example of corporate sponsorship in France.


Located in Paris since 1994, the Fondation Cartier is housed in a building designed by architect Jean Nouvel, with all transparency and reflections. In this unique setting, creations, exhibitions, and meetings come to life.
