Well, the guy loves art (for the beauty of it and its fiscal attraction ndlr). So we wanted to have a brilliant collection of arts ! A few years ago, he decided to work with Franck Gehry (the architect of the Sidney Opera for example) to build a magnificient palace in te public park “le bois de Boulogne”. The Fondation opened on 2014 and the media did a really great introductions. And we understand why : everything is magnificent there !
There are different exhibitions throughout the year like the photographer Gerhard Richter or the videographer Pierre Huyghe (for example!).
No politics or sex there, only clasic contemporary arts.
It is really great stuff there. You feel that the guy is rich and loves riches 🙂 Anyway, his collection is gorgeous.
And there are musical or dance (20th century and contemporary photography) programs also. And a fine restaurant !
Plus, the garden around the fondation is really well maintained. You shall have a look there !
Located in a pleasant place in summer : the “Bois de Boulogne”
