On October 20, 1984, Cartier created the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, a pioneering creative initiative for contemporary art. The glass and steel building designed by Jean Nouvel provides essential opportunities for artists from all over the world.
From May 10 to September 21 2014, the exhibition Vivid Memories, along with concerts and live events, highlights some of the most emblematic works in the collection of the Fondation Cartier, works that each represent important moments in its history.
Photographs, sculptures, films and paintings will be changed regularly over the five-month period in a bold exhibition full of surprises. From Raymond Hains to James Lee Byars, from Nan Goldin to David Lynch, from Mœbius to Ron Mueck, Vivid Memories presents the work of magnificent artists waiting to be discovered or rediscovered.
