Connaissance de l’Art Contemporain

Based in Paris since 1991 and in Bordeaux (2014), active on the national territory, the association brings together art historians, artists and researchers, and organizes conferences, meetings and cultural stays. An approved formation organization, it oversees the guides of the RMN/Grand-Palais (Musée du Louvre, M’Orsay, Versailles), the staff of the EN, the librarians…. It provides its expertise in mediation and exhibition curating to local authorities and supports corporate projects (patronage, events, etc.). Since October 2009, our nomadic structure has been making a monthly trip to Europe for contemporary art amateurs and collectors to discover museums, art centers, galleries and artists’ studios…
