In 2023, the Amis du Centre Pompidou are celebrating the 120th anniversary of the association.
For more than a century, the Amis have continuously enriched the collections
of the Musée National d'Art Moderne and contributed to their impact both nationally and internationally.
Over one thousand works have entered the collections thanks to the Amis’ commitment, making the association
of the Amis du Centre Pompidou the primary patron of the Musée National d'Art Moderne.
In 2002, the first acquisition group dedicated to the contemporary scene was launched.
Today the Amis du Centre Pompidou have brought together eighteen dedicated
thematic and geographic acquisition committees.
In 2022, more than one hundred and fifty artworks joined the national collections and five research grants were supported by the Amis, who enjoy a richly diverse and exclusive programme of visits and cultural excursions in France and abroad.
These represent all kinds of privileged moments to meet with the key figures in the contemporary and modern art scene.
