“For almost ten years, through various engagements, I’ve had a chance to enthusiastically share my love of art with the general public. So, it was with great joy and pride that I agreed to partner with the International Festival of Films on Art. We share the desire to make art more accessible and to spread knowledge about and appreciation of it. I think of film as a perfect medium for a better understanding of art: films offer intimate access to the creative process behind the work and open new and fascinating perspectives on many art fields.
“For me, the intimate relationship with art that film offers has proved even more relevant over the last year and a half. As an art collector, I’m very excited about the TRAIT D’UNION virtual fundraising auction, which offers the perfect opportunity to get one’s hands on works by established artists and discover new talents, while supporting Le FIFA’s mission. We never regret our investment when we get to share our space with a work of art!” – Vanessa Pilon
The lots will be unveiled on the websites of FIFA, lefifa.com, and Bydealers and on our social media: Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
