Centre National Des Arts Plastiques Acquires Work by Erwan Frotin

The Centre National des Arts Plastiques (CNAP) acquired four works of Erwan Frotin's Flora Olbiensis series for its permanent collection.  CNAP is a public establishment under the purview of the minister of Culture and Communication, and its mission is to maintain and promote the contemporary arts in all forms: painting, sculpture, photography, video, multimedia work, design, etc. Founded in 1982, the museum's mission became aligned with the state's cultural and political reform, and in 2002, the government took over full operation. Through the different messions, CNAP wishes to promote a place for contemporary creativity, and notably the intersections between the artistic and economic spheres.
