Composed and Contemporary

Modern art doesn't have to consist of toilet seats strategically positioned stone-henge-like around a trashcan. The Fondation Cartier Pour l'Art Contemporain is a contemporary art museum located at 261 Boulevard Raspail in the 14th Arrondissement of the French capital. The foundation was created in 1984 by the Cartier SA firm as a center for contemporary art that presents exhibits by established artists, offers young artists a chance to debut, and incorporates works into its collection. Currently there are over 1000 pieces to view, created by 300 artists such as James Lee Byars, Liza Lou, and Wim Delvoye. The open and airy museum was designed by architect Jean Nouvel and includes beautiful garden landscaping by Lothar Baumgarten.
