The Fondation is expanding
The Fondation Maeght's new galleries
The Foundation is building a much needed extension to coincide with its 60th anniversary in the summer of 2024. Designed by architect Silvio d’Ascia, the project respects the original buildings’ architecture, with the addition of a 585m2 gallery under the Giacometti courtyard as well as an adjacent, 85m2 gallery. Both spaces will be vital as new additional exhibition space, built out towards the pine forest, seen through large panoramic windows. The project 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 and solidify its revenue model and continue to showcase highly ambitious thematic exhibitions.
“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. 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!”
President, Fondation Maeght
