For the fifth consecutive year, the Ministry of Culture and Communication has carried out a series of acquisitions of works exhibited at the 36th edition of the International Fair of Contemporary Art (22-25 October 2009) by the National Centre for Visual Arts, for a budget of 400,000 euros. These works enrich the National Fund of Contemporary Art, a collection of state art for which the CNAP ensures the custody, management and dissemination.
These works are reported to FIAC visitors by a cartel.
You can also discover them on the website http://www.cnap.fr/index.php?page=journal&rep=journal
The National Advisory Committee on Acquisitions is composed of persons qualified for the visual arts and persons responsible, in the same field, for the Ministry of Culture and Communication and its public institutions (see list below).
The CNAP pursues a policy of dissemination of works in France and abroad through deposits in museums, public administrations and places (about 600 per year) as well as through loans for temporary exhibitions (3000 works per year).
The Fonds national d'art contemporain is the largest collection of contemporary art in France. Through purchases and commissions from active artists and galleries, it has been enriched since 1981 by more than 28,000 works from the visual arts and photography to the decorative arts and design.
