Exhibition Thirty Years of Acquisitions in Nord-Pas de Calais
The Region’s Museums Given Free Rein

from May 28, 2014 to June 1, 2015

This exhibition presents an overview of acquisitions by museums in the Nord-Pas de Calais region over the last thirty years.

It is an excellent opportunity to explain to visitors the meaning and logic behind a purchase. The event is therefore part of the Louvre-Lens’ mission to go behind the scenes and reveal the inner workings of museums. Featuring works acquired thanks to the involvement of the FRAM regional acquisition fund for museums, endowed in equal part by the State and Region, the exhibition showcases the efforts of various players in enriching museums: the local authorities answerable for the collections, the Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs, and the Nord-Pas de Calais Regional Council. 

Organized by:

Luc Piralla, Musée du Louvre-Lens;
Philippe Gayot, Musées de la Porte du Hainaut, association of museum curators for the Nord-Pas de Calais.
