For over fifteen years, the non-profit association of the Amis du CAPC (Friends of the CAPC) has been accompanying the contemporary art museum of Bordeaux in its actions and initiatives: the enrichment of its collection as well as the financial support brought to exhibitions and to the development of cultural and educational programmes. The association has always sought to create a strong and durable bond between the CAPC and its members by enabling encounters with professionals of the art world.
The Board of the Friends of the CAPC:
Jean-Pierre Foubet president
Anne Bernard vice-president
Emilie Brochet vice-president
Hélène Lemoîne vice-president
Bruno Cantelaube treasurer
Pascale Rousseau Dewambrechies secretary

With private artistic events, in the company of curators and artists, and many priviledges reserved for its members, the association supports the museum on a daily basis, raising funds to buy artworks for the collection, whilst also financing the online development of the archives. The association is a regular contributor to the museum’s cultural activities, supporting the publication of exhibition catalogues and proposing talks with committed collectors, open to all.
As well as regular collaborations and talks with international artists (Thomas Hirschhorn, Fischli & Weiss, Xavier Veilhan, etc.), the Friends of the CAPC also offer trips abroad to discover foreign private collections (London, Venice, Turin, Berlin, Lisbon, Istambul, etc.) and many events in collaboration with the museum.
As well as annual visits to the FIAC and artists’ workshop, meetings with art collectors, tours of great vineyards and trips abroad to discover neighbouring cultural institutions, the Friends of the CAPC also organise several high-profile events at the Lainé Warehouse to raise funds to continue its artwork acquisition policy and support of the museum’s cultural programme.
