Gala Evening of Les Amis du Centre Pompidou casts light on the Parisian art scene
Gala dinner of Les Amis du Centre Pompidou dinner, held in the heart of the collections of the Musée national d’art moderne, is a major fundraiser for the enrichment of the Museum’s collections, for which the Museum’s Friends are the first patrons. Under the patronage of the President of the Republic and the Ministry of Culture, the Friends’ dinner brings together each year more than 800 French and international personalities. Listening attentively to the speeches of Laurent le Bon and Floriane de Saint-Pierre, we caught a glimpse of the gallery owners Emmanuel Perrotin, Kamel Mennour and Frank Elbaz, the artists Jean-Michel Othoniel, Chris Dercon, Annette Messager, Sophie Calle, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Lee Ufan, Giulia Andreani, as well as Diana Picasso and Madison Cox. A look back at the not-to-be-missed art event.
