Presentation of the insignia of Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur to Catherine Grenier
Fondation Giacometti - Paris VIe25.06.2015 #art
Double event in the Cour de Rohan, last Thursday evening: the decoration of Catherine Grenier, Director of the Giacometti Foundation; and the inauguration of the Foundation’s new premises.
The curator and art historian, head of the Foundation since January 2014, received the insignia of Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur from Henri Loyrette. The former president of the Louvre took the opportunity to highlight the special relationship that Catherine Grenier has established and maintains with contemporary artists. The proof: Annette Messager, Christian Boltanski, Orlan, Yan Pei-Ming or Pierre & Gilles came to celebrate the news.
The opportunity, in passing, to hang the housewarming rack of the new premises of the Giacometti Foundation, in a mansion in St Germain-des-prés acquired at the time by Annette Giacometti. Review, from the court of Rohan.
