Support this project


Provide support to exhibitions organisation and presentation at the Maeght Foundation providing access to modern and contemporary art to the public.


The activities will focus on the organisation and presentation of exhibitions at the Maeght Foundation.

 KBF CANADA is working with the Maeght Foundation on this project, a French non-profit organisation with more than half a century of experience. The Maeght Foundation has for mission to receive, restore, acquire, and present to the public artwork, and all other expressions of contemporary artistic creation and all research related to it.

On its opening in 1964, the Maeght Foundation prefigured the modern concept of a cultural centre by organising exhibitions, dance events, concerts and works of theatre.

The Maeght Foundation is home to one of the largest collections of modern art in Europe, featuring paintings, sculptures, drawings and graphic works by renowned 20th-century figures including Pierre Bonnard, Georges Braque, Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Diego Giacometti, Wassily Kandinsky, Barbara Hepworth, Fernand Léger, Joan Miró, Pierre Tal Coat, Germaine Richier, and Raul Ubac. The collection also contains work by post-war and contemporary artists including Anna-Eva Bergman, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Eduardo Chillida, Christo, Marco Del Re, Gérard Garouste, Jörg Immendorff, Ellsworth Kelly, Wifredo Lam, Joan Mitchell, Takis and Antoni Tàpies.

Since its creation, 140 exhibitions of modern and contemporary artists were organised providing access to art to a diverse audience.

Next exhibit :

–           Jean-Paul Riopelle, Parfums d’ateliers – summer 2023.
