About

THIBAULT POUTREL, YOUNG ART COLLECTOR AND SPONSOR OF INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTIONS (MUSÉE NATIONAL D’ART MODERNE – CENTRE POMPIDOU IN PARIS, TATE MODERN…) AND SOCIETIES OF COLLECTORS (ADIAF…) WISHES TO PARTICIPATE IN THE DISSEMINATION OF CONTEMPORARY ART.

AFTER HIS STUDIES AT SCIENCES PO PARIS AND THE LONDON SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS, HE STARTED HIS CAREER IN NEW TECHNOLOGIES INVESTMENT, FASCINATED BY THE CHANGES TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE INDUCES IN HUMAN RELATIONS AND SOCIAL STRUCTURES. ESTABLISHING A PARALLEL BETWEEN HIS PASSION FOR ART AND HIS INTEREST POUR INNOVATION, THIBAULT INTENDS TO REMAIN COMMITTED IN BOTH AREAS.

THE THIBAULT POUTREL COLLECTION USES AS ITS ARIADNE’S THREAD THE HISTORY OF THE PEOPLES, ESPECIALLY WITH REGARD TO THE CONSTRUCTION OF THEIR IDENTITY, AS WELL AS THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH BOUNDARIES AND TERRITORY. IT QUESTIONS THE IMPACT OF TIME ON INDIVIDUAL OR COLLECTIVE MEMORY. IT ALSO FOCUSES ON THE EVOLUTION OF WRITING, OF BOOKS AND IMAGE AS A VEHICLE FOR MEMORY. IT FINALLY QUESTIONS THE EVOLUTION OF GROUPS AND MINORITIES, CAUGHT IN A VICE BETWEEN INDIVIDUAL IDENTITY AND COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS.

IT IS THROUGH THEMED EXHIBITIONS AND LOANS THAT THIBAULT POUTREL INTENDS TO SHARE HIS TASTE FOR CONTEMPORARY ART. FOR SPECIAL PROJECTS, TPCA ALSO SUPPORTS ARTISTS AND GALLERIES FOR THE PRODUCTION OF PIECES OF ART.
