KADIST

KADIST is a non-profit organization which has just celebrated its twenty years of existence. Convinced that art is a driving force for social transformation, KADIST supports an engaged and decentralized vision of contemporary art, an affirmation that some of the world’s most important artistic voices are found beyond its own North American and European localities.

KADIST is a non-profit organization which has just celebrated its twenty years of existence. Convinced that art is a driving force for social transformation, KADIST supports an engaged and decentralized vision of contemporary art, an affirmation that some of the world’s most important artistic voices are found beyond its own North American and European localities.

KADIST, as of today, means : a collection of more than 1,600 artworks from all over the world, touching on the many political and social stakes of our time (by Cao Fei, Ryan Gander, Kapwani Kiwanga, Apichatpong Weerasethakul..) ; international programs originating from its art collection and collaborations with artistic institutions and curators across five continents ;  two permanent spaces in Paris and San Francisco gathering exhibitions, residencies, events and educational programs ; and an innovating and rich online program, most notably KVL (Kadist Video Library), a streaming platform which gives audiences access to videos of artists whose work belong to KADIST’s art collection.

From the 9th of April 2021 on, KADIST Paris will present to the public, in its newly renovated Montmartre location, the exhibition Not Fully Human, Not Human at All. Currently at the Kunstverein in Hamburg, the exhibition is the result of a three-year research and production program on the concept of dehumanization in Europe. KADIST has also made available several of its projects online (Incidents of Travel, Questions & Appearances, Artist Contract…)
