Mission Recherche

Each year, its members fund one to five scholarships enabling young researchers to achieve, under the supervision of a curator and through field studies, interviews or unpublished translations, a work focused on acquisition opportunities.
The members of Mission Recherche enjoy:
- To be part of the general research development project within the Museum and support its scientific activities in connection with the University.
- To complete the national collections by exploring and promoting artistic fields that are still poorly known.
- To generate new ideas from innovative work and circulate them.
- To meet at the Musée national d’art moderne with the Director, the curatorial team, the researchers and the other members.
- 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.
