With Glenn Lowry (MoMA), Richard Armstrong (Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum), Adam Weinberg and his curatorial team (Whitney Museum of American Art), Thomas P. Campbell (Metropolitan Museum of Art), Michael Govan (LACMA), Martin Bethenod (Punta della Dogana–Palazzo Grassi–Fondation Pinault), Alain Seban (Centre Pompidou), Jean-Luc Martinez (Musée du Louvre), Xavier Douroux and Frank Gautherot (Le Consortium), Peter Reed (MoMA), Yasmil Raymond (Dia Art Foundation), Sophie Claudel (Cultural Services of the French Embassy), Andras Szanto (writer, researcher and advisor) and The Judd Foundation.

This platform was conceived as a French-American exchange of perspectives centered on issues and themes that drive museums and private foundations alike. These places are guarantors of an encyclopedic knowledge essential for enriching our vision of the world, but what tactics do these cultural institutions use for transmitting knowledge to the public and building "le bien commun" essential for our society? Several topics of reflection will be studied over the course of these two days of discussion: exhibiting collections, presenting new perspectives on art history, offering an artistic yet pedagogic program, producing new works and supporting the creation of contemporary art, and opening international axis museums in an effort to globalize a museum’s presence.
