Sylvain Amic appointed to the Musée d’Orsay to replace Christophe Leribault

The position had been vacant since the departure to Versailles of Christophe Leribault, appointed in February. According to our information, it should be filled today with the appointment of Sylvain Amic as director of the Public Establishment of the Orsay and Orangerie Museums. Received last week by Emmanuel Macron, among the other candidates, Sylvain Amic, 56, defended a project to open the great national museum dedicated to the 19th century which was able to attract both the Élysée and Rachida Dati. The latter had received six contenders for the position, and had stressed, to the Elysée, that Sylvain Amic would be a continuation of Leribault's project.

General curator of heritage having worked at the Fabre museum in the early 2000s, former director of the Réunion des musées métropolitains de Rouen-Normandie until 2022, then advisor in charge of museums in the cabinet of Rima Abdul Malak, until last January , Sylvain Amic has curated several exhibitions, including several devoted to Romanticism and Impressionism. In Rouen, he notably promoted a policy in favor of parity, both in recruitment and in the artists exhibited. Shaking up habits, he established a voting system, called The Visitors' Room, in which the public could indicate which works they wanted to see taken out of storage and exhibited in theaters.

As an advisor to the office of the Minister of Culture, we owe him work around the national strategy in favor of artistic crafts, the preparation of laws in favor of the restitution of looted property or human remains, or the monitoring several memorial projects - including the future press cartoon house wanted by Emmanuel Macron.

In Orsay, in addition to the search for patronage and funds for the work, the launch of exhibitions, and the establishment of a policy in favor of young people, it should be one of the links in the policy in favor of rurality implemented implemented by Rachida Dati. Already, in 2018, Amic had been entrusted by the former Minister of Culture, Françoise Nyssen, with the “Catalogue of Desires” mission, a reflection carried out in favor of the circulation of national collections in the territory.
