It supports the artist’s legacy through a variety of initiatives, including exhibitions, loans of artworks, research and publications, conservation, grants, and educational programs for the public and the scholarly community.

Florence Gould Foundation

The Florence Gould Foundation, an American foundation devoted to French-American exchange and amity, has consistently provided major support to Etant donnés. Born of French parents in San Francisco in 1895, Florence Gould lived both in the United States and France during her life. That life was one in which an interest and dedication to arts and letters was always paramount. Having no family, at her death in 1993, Florence Gould left the bulk of her fortune to the foundation bearing her name.

Its role is to act as the conduit for a “diplomacy of influence,” which includes promoting visual art, architecture, and design and lending support to artists living and working in France, Africa, and the Caribbean. By fostering dialogue between French and foreign cultures, the Institut français responds to the needs of France via a policy of listening, partnership, and openness to the world.
