Our Mission

We believe contemporary artists make an important contribution to a progressive society, their work often addressing key issues of our time. KADIST, a non-profit organization dedicated to exhibiting the work of artists represented in its collection, encourages this engagement and advocates for the relevance of contemporary art in our lives. Its programs develop collaborations with artists, curators and many art organizations around the world, facilitating new connections across cultures. 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 abordant souvent des questions clés de notre époque. Organisation à but non lucratif, KADIST soutient l’engagement des artistes représentés dans sa collection et se consacre à diffuser leurs oeuvres afin d’affirmer la place essentielle de l’art contemporain au coeur des débats de société. Ses programmes sont le fruit de collaborations avec des artistes, des commissaires d’exposition et des institutions artistiques du monde entier, facilitant ainsi de nouveaux échanges entre les cultures. 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 sur l’art et la société.
