Founded in 2007, the Association des Amis des Beaux-Arts de Paris, governed by the law of 1901, aims to contribute to the activities and influence of the institution. Les Amis des Beaux-Arts de Paris aims to help this institution in all its missions and events: exhibitions, symposiums, conferences, teaching... notably by encouraging young artists, sponsoring students, following their career path and their professional integration and by contributing to their discovery by the public.
Prizes: Through the awarding of seven annual prizes (Agnès b, Thaddaeus Ropac, Weil, Khalil de Chazournes, Bertrand de Demandolx, des Amis, du Félicité des Félicités), Les Amis des Beaux-Arts de Paris supports the work of 3rd and 5th year students in particular. The awards ceremony takes place every year, with the selected works being exhibited in the School and the winners of an exhibition outside the walls.
Grants: They also support the career path of young graduates after leaving the School, via grants to help produce works, exhibitions or publications intended to support the project of an artist who has been out of the School for less than 5 years.
Support for the School's collective artistic projects, designed by young graduates or by a workshop, which take place in a program initiated by the Beaux-Arts de Paris. Jean-Baptiste Lenglet, Florian Fouché, Nøne Futbol Club, Jérémy Demester, Mélanie Feuvrier, Hugo Fortin, Sabrina Vitali and have thus been supported, as well as collective projects from the workshops of Nathalie Talec, Clément Cogitore and Ann Veronica Janssens and the Théâtre des Expositions.
