Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin, Minister of Culture, has decided to appoint Alexia Fabre as director of the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, after a selection procedure conducted in close consultation with the institution's board of directors.
Chief curator of heritage, Alexia Fabre previously directed the MAC VAL, the museum of contemporary art in Val-de-Marne.
Her project for the School is unifying in terms of pedagogy and research and displays real ambition for national and international partnerships, artistic programming, and collection management.
Alexia Fabre succeeds Jean de Loisy and will take up her post shortly.
