Study Day: “L’Art Américain au Musée, Nouvelles Installations et Enjeux Contemporains Internationaux”

This study day invites the French public to reflect upon the history of institutions dedicated to collections of American art, which have been burgeoning in North America since 1875 but whose historical treasures remain relatively unknown to Europeans. Participants examined the motivations that guide the creation of institutions dedicated to American art, the strategies used to form such collections, and the missions these institutions fulfill today in a world of increasing multiculturalism and globalization.
