Located at the heart of the Permanent Collections Area, the Atelier Martine Aublet covers an area of 170 square metres, and hosts installations linked to the life of the collections three times a year. It bears the name of Martine Aublet, who died in April 2011, participant in the museum's foreshadowing mission, and founder of its patronage policy.
About the Martine Aublet Foundation
The Martine Aublet Foundation was created in 2011 by Bruno Roger to extend the work undertaken by Martine Aublet in artistic and educational fields. Art and culture were always at the heart of Martine Aublet's life. Eclectic knowledge and a well-developed aesthetic sense guided her throughout a career rich in encounters and inspiration. The Martine Aublet Foundation financed the permanent scenography of the workshop space that bears her name, and assists with the development of each of the installations presented in the space.
In addition, the Foundation supports educational and research projects by means of grants for study in ethnography, ethnology and art history, and an annual prize awarded to a work dedicated to non-Western cultures.
The Martine Aublet Foundation, created under the auspices of the Fondation de France, is administered by a board of directors. The grants and the prize are distributed with the assistance of a scientific committee created in association with the musée du quai Branly — Jacques Chirac.
