Established in 1903 and granted charitable status in 1924, in 1946 the Société des amis du musée du Luxembourg became the Société des amis du musée national d’art moderne. Now more than a hundred years old, it is more than ever engaged with the art of its time, with an active programme of acquisitions and activities. Its goal is to help expand and enrich the Centre Pompidou’s holdings of modern and contemporary art.
With its substantial membership and generous donors, the Society is able every year to purchase major works on behalf of the musée national d’art moderne, and its contributes to the development of the Centre Pompidou and the expansion of its presence in France and abroad. Visits to exhibitions, meetings with artists, and excursions in France and abroad foster friendship and debate among its members, and exclusive events offer them the opportunity to engage with key actors in the world of contemporary art.
The Société des amis du musée national d’art moderne is a non-profit organisation with charitable status.
