An aesthete, placing knowledge at the heart of any project, Jacques Garcia regularly collaborates on major exhibition projects of national scope, whether permanent as at the Louvre, or temporary.
In the 2000s, he began a collaboration with the Palace of Versailles for exhibitions that revive the splendour of the court of France and participated in the refurnishing of the apartments of Mesdasmes, daughters of Louis XV’s king. As undisputed expert of the 17th and 18th centuries, the Louvre commissioned him in 2014 to create the period rooms. A unique success for the greatest museum in the world.
In parallel, Jacques Garcia has also staged operas, demonstrating his ability to embrace all the arts.
