Founded in 1984 and established since 1994 in Paris in a building designed by the architect Jean Nouvel and surrounded by a garden created by the artist Lothar Baumgarten, the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain is situated at 261, boulevard Raspail in the heart of Montparnasse.
The aim of the Fondation Cartier is to present the work of living artists around the world and to promote a wide range of contemporary art from painting and sculpture to photography and video.
Ever since it was founded, the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain has varied its programme so as to include both one-man shows and group or thematic exhibitions.
