l’art en plus has advises the Société Générale Collection since 2009.

The Société Générale Collection is an ensemble of art vivant. Created in 1995, bringing together painting, photography and sculpture, the collection now constitutes more than 1,200 works. Displayed on the premises, its mission is to share the collection widely amongst its employees, the public, its partners, its clients, school groups and students, who can view it through in-house exhibitions, artistic workshops, partnerships, loans or off-site shows. The collection develops in an ongoing fashion thanks to a steadfast and coherent acquisition policy, which merges the driving forces of the company. Each year, the collection is enriched with new works that are selected by a committee, made up of members of the Group’s general management and its collaborators, with input from independent experts. The collection encompasses works by celebrated artists as well as emerging creatives, with a growing interest in scenes throughout Europe, Africa and Asia, reflecting the international development of the Group. The Société Générale Collection expresses a long-term, inclusive and open cultural sponsorship policy aligned with the Group’s values.
