Nathalie Guiot, Founder
“I wanted a place that brings together and fosters a community; a place for artists, the primary actors in this long-term project. A public meeting place for sharing and hosting encounters around creation. Traversing across modes of operation, the domestic space of the foundation aims to represent processes of engaged creation through speech, gestures, dance and texts; a sharing of knowledge and an ambition to de-compartmentalize artistic practices. A place that activates thought and prompts investigation into the great challenges of our society through the medium of art.”
Founder and President, Nathalie Guiot is an author, editor, and exhibition curator. She founded Anabet Editions in the 2000s and in 2012, created Thalie Art Project, an association that produces artistic and performative encounters. Over the years this has become a foundation with an exhibition space along with a residency for artists and authors in Brussels. Nathalie Guiot is a member of the International Circle and of the Design acquisition Committee at the Centre Pompidou, a member of the Visual Arts acquisition Committee for the CNAP and an active patron of other cultural institutions in France and Belgium. In 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, she launched a new online discussion format between artists and scientists: “Parole de créateurs face à l’urgence écologique” (Creators facing the Climate Emergency), which aims to broaden the fields of imagination in the face of the climate crisis.
