A word from the founder

Paul-Emmanuel Reiffers- A word from the founder
“As they are its greatest promises, France must promote nationally and internationally the French young talents of the plastic and visual arts, by supporting their creative expression and thus affirming the strength of its unique multicultural model.
This diversity is a field of intense, complex and interrelated creativity. It opens the dialogue between cultures, explores new narratives and constantly nurtures the emergence of new talents. Initiating these exchanges and revealing the new art scene is the mission of Reiffers Art Initiatives.”

Diversity
the heart of
our project

Reiffers Art Initiatives supports young talents with a particular attention to diversity and plural identities that enrich our country and shape the culture of tomorrow. Artists living in France, or connected to our country, whose works invite us to look at the world differently, in a more open way.
The Reiffers Art Initiatives Foundation offers a new platform to support emerging artists and is part of a sustainable philanthropic approach, driven by the idea that contemporary art must above all be a space open to all identities and cultures. By supporting talents within and outside the classical artistic pathways, the Foundation intends to respond to contemporary issues of representation and visibility. It also aims to open the public to multiple profiles and approaches to art.

The ambition of Reiffers Art Initiatives is to give a global dimension to the work of its artists by putting them in dialogue with other cultures.
