Reiffers Art Initiatives (2 lignes)
Reiffers Art Initiatives is a philanthropic organisation dedicated to supporting young contemporary artists and cultural diversity.
Reiffers Art Initiatives supports young talents, with a particular focus on the diversity and plural identities that contribute to enriching our society and shaping tomorrow's culture.
Reiffers Art Initiatives provides a new platform for supporting emerging artists, and is part of a long-term philanthropic approach based on the conviction that contemporary art is first and foremost a space open to all identities and cultures. By supporting talented artists both within and outside conventional artistic trajectories, Reiffers Art Initiatives aims to respond to contemporary issues of representation and visibility. It also aims to open up the public to a wide range of artistic profiles and approaches.
The Reiffers Art Initiatives mentorship program
Each year, Reiffers Art Initiatives invites a major figure of the contemporary art world to become the mentor of an emerging artist of the French scene. The mentor chooses the laureate of the mentorship program among the selection of emerging artists proposed by the artistic committee. This mentorship will give rise to an exhibition during the Paris+ by Art Basel.
The Reiffers Art Initiatives Prize
Each year in the spring, Reiffers Art Initiatives awards a prize to an emerging French artist. Under the aegis of the artistic committee, the purpose of the prize is to highlight and accelerate the recognition of the work of a young talent of the contemporary scene, whose works invite us to look at the world differently, in its complexity and diversity.
The Acacias Art Center is a cultural space that welcomes and presents to the public the works of artists supported by Reiffers Art Initiatives.
The Acacias Art Center has welcomed the greatest French and international photographers, such as Irving Penn and Guy Bourdin. Today, the space continues to keep this artistic tradition alive by opening its doors to the young contemporary scene supported by Reiffers Art Initiatives. Located close to the international art galleries of Western Paris, this cultural space welcomes and presents the work of the new French and international contemporary scene to the general public. Each year, this mythical venue presents an exhibition from the mentoring program and a group show, reflecting the creative power of emerging talents from the young creative scene.
