Partnership with The Edmond de Rothschild Foundations

The Edmond de Rothschild Foundations and FIAF have partnered to present “BRIDGING: A French-American Dialogue on Diversity and Inclusion in the Arts,” which will be launched as part of Crossing the Line 2016. BRIDGING will offer perspectives from the US and France as both countries re-evaluate their policies and practices in an effort to move beyond simple acknowledgement of cultural diversity to achieve genuine equality in the arts in our shifting cultural landscape. Works by artists Anne Nguyen and Rachid Ouramdane will be presented as part of this project as well as two panel discussions with the artists and special guests.
