l’art en plus advises Art [ ] Collector since 2011.

“Art [ ] Collector: collectors invite an artist” is a philanthropic project launched in 2011 by Evelyne and Jacques Deret, a couple of collectors. The project brings together—over the span of an exhibition in Paris—an artist, his/her collectors and his/her gallery. The 13 previous winners have each received a solo exhibition and a catalog featuring commentary from collectors. The project has been supported by the Ministry of Culture since 2015 and partnered with Patinoire Royale / Galerie Valérie Bach in Brussels, which hosted a group exhibition in 2017 to celebrate the program’s fifth anniversary. In 2019, Art [ ] Collector launched a second prize, in partnership with the company Cornu, and exhibited its first winner, Clément Bagot, at 24Beaubourg, a space dedicated to Contemporary art close to the Centre Pompidou.
