Kadist Art Foundation is a private foundation initiated in 2001. It is dedicated to promoting contemporary art through the constitution of an art collection and the organization of exhibitions and residencies in its space in Paris. Kadist's intention is to be actively involved in the promotion and international dimension of contemporary art.
The collection brings together international artists and contemporary works of all mediums. It is the seminal point of involvement with artists that can thereafter expand to a residency and exhibition project.
The residencies are open to international artists and curators, invited to spend four to six months in Paris leading to an exhibition project at the Foundation. A flat, a workshop place and an allowance are provided to the resident by the Foundation.
By means of these various programs, Kadist manifests its support to a group of artists who define together its artistic identity.
