Donations, acquisitions, bequests: how do Museums expand their holdings in the 21st century? How do collectors determine the transmission of their collections? What are the differences in approach between French and American museums?

In conjunction with the Grand Palais exhibition American Icons from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Fisher Collection (on view April 8-June 22? 2015), the Mona Bismarck American Center will co-organize a round table with Ruth Berson, Deputy Museum Director of Curatorial Affairs, SFMOMA; Florence and Daniel Guerlain, collectors, creators of a contemporary art foundation and of the Contemporary Drawing Prize; Alfred Pacquement, Director of the National Museum of Modern Art, 2000-14; and Hervé Loevenbruck, president of the association Galeries mode d’emploi, an association of contemporary art galleries in Paris. Discussion moderated by Arnaud Laporte, TV host-producer at France Culture.
