Functioning of the consultative committee for loans and deposits

The new statutary decree of the Centre national des arts plastiques drawn up on the 23 April 2015 specifies in its article 4 that in order to fulfil its objectives, the Cnap may “Loan and deposit objects and works of art recorded in the inventory of the National Contemporary Art Collection, under the conditions laid down in articles D. 113-1 and D. 113-10-1 of the Heritage Code”.

It also specifies that decisions concerning loans and deposits are taken in accordance with the general orientation of the institution, by the director of the institution upon advice from the consultative committee for loans and deposits of the Cnap.

Requests are examined by the committee for loans and deposits of the Centre national des arts plastiques.

The committee is made up of those responsible for the collection of the Centre national des arts plastiques, the director of the collection department, the head of the registrar service, the head of the acquisitions and commissions service, a representative of the Museum Service of France and a representative of the Musée National d’Art Moderne.

The committee for loans and deposits examines the scientific and cultural project of the person making the request, the conditions of presentation and promotion of the works and the technical feasibility of the deposit (state of conservation of the work, duration of the request, etc.). The committee also evaluates the security and conservation guarantees of the location where the works will be presented, which feature in the “Facility Report” accompanying the request, and makes recommendations for the transport and packaging.

The consultative committee for loans and deposits meets every six weeks (See the calendar in the articles "Requesting a short-term loan" and "Requesting a long-term loan").
