Champagne Louis Roederer, a prestigious, family-owned house has announced the creation of the Louise Roederer Foundation for Contemporary Art. The aim of the Foundation is to promote and develop new contemporary art projects.
Founded in Reims in 1776, Louis Roederer owns several wine portfolios including Champagne. Through the creation of the Louis Roederer Foundation for Contemporary Art, the company aims to draw attention to its patronage of the arts, a company policy since 2003, through supporting new projects. To this end, the Foundation has entered into a partnership with the Palais de Tokyo Contemporary Art Gallery in Paris.
The Louis Roederer Foundation will support artistic innovation and allow art to become more accessible to the public. In order to achieve this, the Foundation is developing partnerships with various artistic institutions, the commissioning and purchase of works by artists with whom the house has created links over the past ten years, through supporting artists at exhibitions, previews and festivals all over the world.
