Officially opened in 2000, the Verrière-Hermès is part of the international network of galleries of the Hermès Enterprise Foundation. This foundation supports projects that resonate with the values of the Hermès firm: promoting traditional craft skills and supporting creativity, and involvement in the field of education and the environment, while at the same time developing its own programmes (exhibitions, artists’ residencies for the visual arts, the Émile Hermès Prize for design, the Skills Academy, and calls for biodiversity projects). Within the framework of this patronage, the Verrière produces and promotes four contemporary art exhibitions a year, coupled with design presentations. A small catalogue is published following each exhibition.
