In 2019, the Fine Arts College of the CNAP’s Advisory Committee for Acquisitions and Commissions acquired 406 artworks by 68 artists (40 men and 28 women), for a total cost of €1,130,420.
In addition, the CNAP also commissioned a total of 160 artworks, as part of two projects: multiples for the ‘Quotidien’ programme, and texts for the inhabitants of Pantin as part of the ‘La nouvelle adresse’ programme.
CNAP’s acquisitions demonstrate its commitment to supporting emerging French artists, thus allowing numerous contemporary creators to benefit from their integrating the national collection. The Acquisitions Committee has also sought to complete and strengthen the presence of certain artists.

Decorative arts, design and fine crafts

In 2019, the Decorative Arts, Design and Fine Crafts College of the CNAP’s Advisory Committee for Acquisitions and Commissions acquired 145 works by 26 artists (10 women and 16 men), for a budget exceeding €260,000.
With their works thus acquired for the first time, twelve new designers were added to the national collection, thereby underlining the CNAP’s commitment to supporting emerging artists. The Acquisitions Committee also complemented the work of certain designers already present in the collection.
The collection’s international breadth was reinforced with the purchase of pieces by a few internationally renowned designers, active on both the French and foreign stages.
Committee members continued to support domestic creators and currently manufactured furnishings, with a particular focus on experimentations and explorations within contemporary design. Also, the acquisition of innovative, interdisciplinary works within the illustration and graphic art domains reaffirmed the CNAP’s strong commitment to further enriching its graphic design collection.

Photographs and animated images 

In 2019, the Photography and Images College of the CNAP’s Advisory Committee for Acquisitions and Commissions acquired 40 works by 19 artists (11 women and 8 men), including 4 first-entries, for a budget exceeding €326,740.
While these acquisitions are international in scope (37% of the represented artists are non-French), particular attention is nevertheless accorded the French art scene, to allow for the recording of a history of French photography. The CNAP seeks to assemble representative ensembles to encompass the full diversity of contemporary image-based creation, pursuing an acquisition policy at once broad-ranging and focused.

As part of the collective photographic commission ‘Flux, une société en mouvement’ launched in 2018, 19 contracts were awarded artists. Furthermore, the programme ‘Les regards du Grand Paris’, carried out in collaboration with the Ateliers Médicis, selected 7 artists in 2019 for the fourth edition of this collective commission, with their contracts to be established in 2020.
