Le château de Rentilly, frac île-de-france’s second venue

Le château de Rentilly (Seine-et-Marne), rehabilitated by Xavier Veilhan, architects Bona-Lemercier and set designer Alexis Bertrand,  becomes frac île-de-france’s second venue, as part of its multi-site development project, in partnership with the Communauté d’agglomération de Marne-et-Gondoire.

Since the opening of the Parc culturel de Rentilly in 2006, frac île-de-france has been a partner of the Communauté d’agglomération de Marne et Gondoire, with the goal of developing the contemporary art section.

The rehabilitation of the castle, found in the park’s Estate, has permitted the development of an atypical project: on the initiative of frac île-de-france, the rehabilitation has been entrusted to an artist in order to transform the chateau into both a veritable work of art and an ideal venue for the presentation of works of art.

The proposal of the selected team, the artist Xavier Veilhan, the architects Bona-Lemercier and the set designer Alexis Bertrand, makes le château one of the key spots in the Paris region.

Frac île-de-france have an exceptional new venue for the regular exhibition of its collection and in addition,  organise exhibitions of other public collections, to make this new site become a unique venue in France for the promotion of the contemporary cultural patrimony.


It is with great sadness that we have to inform you of the death of Michel Chartier, President of the Communauté d’agglomération de Marne et Gondoire, and as such, creator of the Parc Culturel de Rentilly.
