Visual Arts Commission 2015

The Commission of the Centre national des arts plastiques (The Cnap: the National Centre of the Visual Arts) responsible for the acquisition of artworks met on 14 and 15 April 2015. The committee had available a budget of € 400,000 and decided on the acquisition of 71 works by 31 artists or groups of artists.

The priority of this commission is still to focus on emerging creative talent as 17 of the artists selected are appearing for the first time in the National Collection of Contemporary Art, a national collection managed by the Cnap. This approach is firmly oriented towards French artists (Xavier Antin, Julien Carreyn, Florian Fouché, Mohssin Harraki, Hisham Berrada,Vincent Olinet, Aurélie Pétrel).

At international level, the commission favoured the acquisition of iconic pieces such as the immersive video of Laure Prouvost, the installation by Maja Bajevic or the sets of works by Daniel Gustav Cramer, Francesco Gennari and the committed Caribbean artist Ernest Breleur.

Reflection on performance and sound practices was undertaken (Pauline Boudry and Renate Laurenz, Abraham Poincheval, Fayçal Baghriche, Ramuntcho Matta) as well as the constitution of groups in the pictorial field (John Tremblay, Renée Lévi, Jean-Xavier Renaud).

The graphic collection was also enhanced by the acquisition of a set of publications by Yona Friedman, Jef Geys, Dorothy Iannone and Allan Ruppersberg, focussing in particular on the archives of the artist.

These works are intended to be loaned to and placed in cultural institutions in France and abroad.
