Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art to Present J'en reve from June 24 - October 9, 2005

NEW YORK--()--May 13, 2005--The Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art, based in Paris, will present J'en reve - an exhibition that will give the public an opportunity to view the works of artists in their twenties from around the world. The responsibility of finding and recommending these talented young people was given to several internationally-known artists who themselves have a personal history with the Foundation Cartier. This request was met with an enthusiastic response that transcended artistic boundaries: photographers recommended sculptors, painters recommended video artists, performance artists recommended architects.

Representing a wide range of disciplines, including photography, architecture, dance, and music, many of these young artists will be exhibiting their work for the very first time. Approximately 40 artists from among the 600 portfolios that have been sent to us will be chosen. The works selected shows the vitality, energy and promise of youth, shedding light on the lifestyles and desires of a new generation. The exhibition explores: How does an artist living in Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Tokyo or Moscow perceive the world? Informal and spontaneous in spirit, the exhibition J'en reve provides a way of connecting those who have contributed to the history of the Cartier Foundation and those who will be a part of its future.

The Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art is located at 261 boulevard Raspail in Paris. The Foundation's mission has been to present and reveal the work of living artists from all over the world to a broad public. Designed by architect Jean Nouvel, the transparent and reflective Foundation building is located in the heart of Paris. A dynamic space for exchanging ideas and discussions, it has built up steady relationships with the artists, supporting their work through exhibitions as well as through commissions.
