Acquisition Group for Photography

The GAP is the Acquisition Committee dedicated to photography, in all its multiple dimensions. The members of the GAP enjoy:
- To discover historic and contemporary photography with the guidance of three specialized curators.
- To choose the next acquisitions of the photography department during the two annual committee meetings, and in particular to vote on the “Coups de Coeur” singled out by the curators at Paris Photo
- To experience the highlights of photography with international experts and the artists most likely to be integrated into the collections of the Museum
- To benefit from a confidential context to discover the treasures in the Centre Pompidou’s storage facilities
- To benefit from a hybrid program of events in physical or digital with a community of passionate amateurs

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