Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain 30th Anniversary Exhibition, Mémoires Vives (Vivid Memories)

Established in 1984 for the promotion of contemporary art, the Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain, the first corporate foundation in France, celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. During this time, the foundation has hosted 150 exhibitions, and through a unique approach of making direct requests to artists, has realized the production of more than 800 works. Celebrating this milestone, the exhibition Mémoires Vives (vivid memories) from May 10 to mid-September will kick off various events that will take place over the course of a year from May 2014. Following his exhibition ISSEY MIYAKE MAKING THINGS, held from October 1998 to February 1999, Issey Miyake has been invited to participate in this exhibition.

Miyake will create installations using lighting fixtures and lamps from the IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE collection in the first floor gallery space and outdoor garden. The first floor gallery space will portray the image of an ocean with an installation representing a migrating school of fish, while the outdoor garden will invoke images of living creatures in the forest with lighting fixtures with names such as mole, hen, and rattlesnake on exhibition among the plants. The fixtures to be used in the installation have been designed especially for this exhibition. The exhibition in the first floor gallery space will run until August 31 and the outdoor garden exhibition will run until mid-May.
