A richly illustrated publication about a unique art space in Paris, published on the thirtieth anniversary of the museum’s opening

Inaugurated on October 20, 1984, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain celebrate its thirtieth anniversary in 2014. To mark this event, it is publishing this richly illustrated book exploring the museum’s history. Its identity is closely linked to its glass and steel building in Paris designed by Jean Nouvel in 1994.

Featuring interviews with the major figures of the history of the Fondation Cartier, this publication presents in images the evolution of this building over time, revealing its extraordinary adaptability, which is a source of inspiration for artists.
