Mazarine supports and commits to contemporary art
Mazarine commits to artists of the contemporary scene through the patronage of unique exhibitions and by financing art productions. In 2013, Mazarine welcomed French artist Claude Lévêque to display his artworks in situ in the group's offices and opened its doors to the public for the occasion. In 2014, Mazarine supports British artist Mark Handforth with the production of new artworks, displayed for the first time at the Studio des Acacias.
"Mazarine supports artists of the new contemporary scene so that all forms of creative expressions flourish."
In 2015, Mazarine invites Rashid Johnson and Matthew Day Jackson, two of the most talented figures of the new generation of contemporary american artists, to introduce a new vision of America to the public. In 2016, Mazarine is a patron of the Monumenta Exhibition, where Chinese artist Huang Yong Ping explores a new vision of today's world transformations. In 2017, Mazarine supports the choreographer Benjamin Millepied in the conception of an immersive experience, co-created with American artist Barbara Kruger. In 2018, Mazarine sponsors the artist Laure Prouvost, representative of France at the 2019 Venice Biennale.
