The Fondation is expanding

The Maeght Foundation increases its exhibition space!

The extension project of the Fondation Maeght, carried out with the architect Silvio d’Ascia, will not only satisfy current visitor needs and improve the overall visitor experience, but it will also enrich the foundation’s programming by offering additional space for conferences, screenings, performance, seminars, and concerts, thereby allowing the Foundation to diversify its revenue model. The increased will finally allow for the design and development of ever more ambitious exhibitions, perpetuating the original spirit of the avant-garde of modern and contemporary art.

The Maeght Foundation’s extension project respects the original architecture of Josep Lluís Sert, in structure and spirit, and through enlarging the exhibition spaces, will continue to provide unique, international-level programming. These new spaces are to be constructed at the basement level and will look towards the pine forest through large windows.

 

The extension project thus provides two new galleries, a small interconnecting gallery and a beautiful ‘introductory’ gallery leading into the Grande Salle.

 

The completion of the extension is scheduled for the summer of 2024 to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the opening of the Maeght Foundation in 1964.

“The Fondation Marguerite and Aimé Maeght is neither a museum nor a gallery. It was created by my family who wanted, from the start, to exhibit the artists we have always supported. What a joy to have new spaces. As soon as it opened, my parents planned to add galleries. This extension will make it possible to present the wealth of the Foundation’s collection that we couldn’t previously present. I look forward to seeing you in the summer of 2023 for the Riopelle exhibition and in the summer of 2024 for the inauguration of the new galleries, celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Foundation!”
