  • To find, along with the curatorial team, modern gems for the museum’s collection at public sales, in addition to the acquisitions decided upon at the two annual committee meetings.
  • To discover, during an annual trip in Europe, the most established and emergent creators of a given area.
  • To participate in the opening of the Design Parade in Hyères, and to meet young and newly-graduated designers.
