Following the success of the first edition of the Friends of the CAPC’s Banquet (September 2013), the benefits of the dinner enabled the association to purchase 2 artworks for the CAPC’s collection.
Over 300 entrepreneurs took part in this first event, among which vineyard owners and amateurs of culture.
A second edition of the event was organised in 2014. This event took place on Friday, October 10th at 8 pm in the great nave of the CAPC, with the support of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux, the Champagnes Barons de Rothschild, Abatilles and Château de Laubade.
The artists invited for this second edition were the chefs of the Restaurant Miles., winners of the Fooding Prize

A first edition of the Banquet took place on Friday 27th September 2013 to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the museum, with the help of the artists Fabien Vallos and Jérémie Gaulin. For an evening, 350 people – among which many artists, art critics, curators and collectors that contributed to the museum’s History – were brought together to share a unique moment of conviviality around a real Banquet à la française imagined by the artists.
Entitled “Celebration”, this Banquet gave way to a festive atmosphere, discussions and encounters. We received the support of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux, who was also celebrating its fortieth anniversary and generously offered all the wine.
The price of the meal is 300 euros per person and is paid as a donation, entitling you to a fiscal deduction of 60% for companies (therefore a real cost of 120 euros) and 66% for individuals (therefore a real cost of 102 euros). Each paying meal allowed us to invite an artist, an art critic or an artistic personality that was important to the CAPC’s history.

The Friends of the CAPC thank the following people for their generous support:
2014 // Visit backstage of the TnBA and meeting with the actors of Cyrano de Bergerac, after the show
Texts Edmond Rostand
Adaptation and direction Dominique Pitoiset
Last year, Dominique Pitoiset signed the foreword of the brochure with a loud “No, thank you!” taken from Cyrano who he had, he says, met. The lines showed all the admiration he had for the work of Edmond Rostand. It will therefore not come as a surprise that he directed the masterpiece. To personify the poet with a long nose, Dominique Pitoiset calls upon the formidable Philippe Torreton.
Evening in collaboration with the TnBA
Tour of the TnBA followed by a cocktail and a meeting with the actors after the show

With a degree in political sciences, Antoine de Galbert (born in 1955) worked in business management, before opening, for a dozen years, a contemporary art gallery in Grenoble. In parallel, he starts an art collection that becomes more and more important for him. In 2000, he chooses to open a Foundation to give a permanent and public dimension to his commitment to contemporary creation.
The maison rouge, Fondation Antoine de Galbert
Created by a private person, Antoine de Galbert, an art amateur committed to the French art scene, the maison rouge is a foundation recognised of public use.
Its goal is to promote the different forms of contemporary creation through the presentation of temporary exhibitions. Putting at the disposal of artists more than 1000 m2 of exhibition space, the maison rouge invites independent curators to explore the diversity of current artistic research, often via large private international collections. The foundation wishes, thanks to the art experiences that it provokes and proposes, to give priority to the multiplicity of practices and approaches.
les amis de la maison rouge accompany Antoine de Galbert’s project and bring him their support. They participate in the thought process and debates on private collections, proposing activities on exhibitions and participating in the influence of the maison rouge on the public in France and abroad.
