Acquisition Group for Design

The GAD is the Acquisition Committee dedicated to both modern, forward-thinking and industrial design. The members of the GAD enjoy :
- To find the most audacious creators and to discover before others the innovative technologies of tomorrow.
- 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.

These advantages are designed in a hybrid way, they will be offered in physical or virtual format, depending on the context.
