Our Mission
We believe contemporary artists make an important contribution to a progressive society, their work often addressing key issues of our time. KADIST is a non-profit organization that encourages this engagement and is dedicated to extending the reach of artists represented in its collection to a global audience, thus facilitating new connections across cultures. Its programs develop collaborations with artists, curators and many art organizations around the world. Local programs in KADIST’s hubs of Paris and San Francisco include exhibitions, public events, residencies and educational initiatives. Complemented by an  active online network, they aim at creating vibrant conversations about contemporary art and ideas.


Pour KADIST, 
l’art est moteur de transformation sociale, les artistes contemporains abordant souvent des questions clés de notre époque. Organisation à but non lucratif, KADIST soutient cet engagement et se consacre à diffuser les pratiques des artistes représentés dans sa collection à un public international, facilitant ainsi de nouveaux échanges entre les cultures. Ses programmes sont le fruit de collaborations avec des artistes, des commissaires d’exposition et des institutions artistiques du monde entier. Ses expositions, résidences, évènements
et programmes éducatifs développés localement dans les deux lieux permanents de KADIST à Paris et San Francisco, ainsi que ses programmes en ligne, favorisent de riches conversations autour de l’art contemporain et des sujets de société.
