Through its exhibitions, the Fondation is committed to promoting modern and contemporary artistic creation and to helping it reach a growing audience in France and internationally. Driven by its purpose of serving the public, and attentive to the diversity of its visitors since it opened in 2014, the Fondation hosts exhibitions for all types of audience.

Every year, the Fondation organises two temporary exhibitions, one of modern art, one of contemporary art. Some have focused on a single figure, such as “Olafur Eliasson: Contact” (2014-2015), “Frank Gehry” (2014-2015), “Jean-Michel Basquiat” (2018-2019) and “Egon Schiele” (2018-2019). Other exhibitions such as “Keys to a passion” (2015) and “Being Modern: MoMA in Paris” (2017-2018) bring together significant works of art, both modern and historical. Some events have examined contemporary scenes elsewhere in the world, for example “Bentu: Chinese artists in a time of turbulence and transformation” and “Art/Afrique, le nouvel atelier”. The Fondation also pays homage to famous collectors such as Sergei Shchukin in “Icons of Modern Art, the Shchukin Collection” (2016-2017) and Samuel Courtauld in “The Courtauld Collection: A Vision for Impressionism” (2019).


In 2018, the Fondation has hosted a special programme dedicated to the most contemporary artistic expressions, called Open Space. This has commissioned young artists including Jean-Marie Appriou, Matt Copson, Anna Hulačová and Hoël Duret to create a site-specific piece for Frank Gehry’s building.


The Fondation also organises an international programme of exhibitions in Tokyo, Beijing, München and Venezia, bringing the art works in its collection to an audience outside France.
