Code of ethics

The aim of the ADIAF is above all to highlight the artists of the French scene – French artists or foreign artists residing in France – to reveal significant artists, to accompany them and to support their career. To do this, it wishes to raise awareness among art lovers and collectors of current developments and new forms of expression, to enable them to exchange discoveries and opinions on contemporary artistic trends.

As part of its activities to promote the French scene and raise awareness of contemporary art, ADIAF organizes many events: exhibitions, debates and conferences, visits to workshops, art centers and museums. Membership of the Association obliges its members to respect the rules of conduct which constitute our integrity and our ethics.

  • Respect : our humanist values are based on trust and respect for people: consideration, tolerance and absolute rejection of all discrimination, all forms of abuse of influence, and physical and moral harassment.
  • Integrity : no direct or indirect profit should be derived from the activities of the association. During ADIAF visits and events, members must refrain from any commercial approach and any financial bargaining, in particular vis-à-vis artists or other members.
  • Confidentiality : members undertake not to use contact details and any other information likely to be communicated in the course of ADIAF’s activities for professional purposes.

The members of the ADIAF undertake to respect these rules within the framework of the meetings offered throughout the year during which they are brought into contact with various actors in the art world.
