It is organized with the support of Rosbank, part of international financial group Societe Generale. The main area of the Group’s sponsorship policy is associated with contemporary art. For many years, Societe Generale pays great attention to this field. This interest is reflected in the creation of its own collection.
At the opening ceremony, the Deputy General Director of Rosbank François Bloch stated: “This French-Russian initiative is a bright example illustrating Russia-France relationships. A long-lasting history of cooperation and mutual respect between two countries is reflected in every aspect of our life, in business, culture and contemporary art in particular.
The exhibition topic - “transformation” is in tune with one of the main issues currently discussed in the banking world. The last 5 years have proved the necessity of global changes in both business-model of financial sector and the global role of banks in the economy and society. No doubt, the exhibition will become a remarkable event in cultural life of Moscow and attract many viewers”.
