Cultural Sponsorship

Cultural Sponsorship

Natixis has been involved in sponsoring a range of cultural initiatives since 2004.

After an initial focus on preserving and restoring major works of art, Natixis’ sponsorship gradually developed towards promoting culture with all audiences and it now sponsors institutions that work to reveal cultural heritage treasures on a long-term basis. 

 

2019-2020: "Degas à l'Opéra"

Natixis sponsors the Degas à l’Opéra exhibition at the Musée d’Orsay to mark the 350th anniversary of the Paris Opera, from September 24, 2019 to January 19, 2020.

Edgar Degas’ work takes us right into the heart of the Opera during this exhibition, as he investigated its various spaces and focused on the different people involved – dancers, musicians and spectators. His art captures the movement and reflects a range of viewpoints as it reveals the details of the stage and provides the viewer with echoes of its song, music and dance.

2019 - "Bouquet of Tulips", by Jeff Koons

Natixis counts itself among the sponsors of Jeff Koons’ "Bouquet of Tulips", a work gifted to the city of Paris as a token of the American people’s support for Parisians and Frenchmen and women who were bereaved by the attacks of 2015-2016.

This initiative testifies to the Franco-American dimension of Natixis, which has had a presence in the United States since its inception, notably in New York and Boston.
