1983
Creation of frac île-de-france

2002
Opening of le plateau
, exhibition space, resulting from the initiative of a neighbourhood association (“Vivre aux Buttes-Chaumont”) presided by the artist Eric Corne. The objective was to reorient a real estate plan for the site of the former audio-visual company La Société Française de Production, in order to develop a contemporary art program.

This was project was made possible thanks to the support of Conseil Régional d’Île-de-France.

2014
Rehabilitation of le château, by the Communauté d’agglomération de Marne-et-Gondoire, with Xavier Veilhan, architects Bona-Lemercier and set designer Alexis Bertrand. As part of its multi-site development project, it becomes frac île-de-france’s second venue.

2021
Inauguration of the Réserves in Romainville, with 1,600 m2 devoted to the conservation and management of works of art, in order to optimise their dissemination throughout the Île-de-France region.  The building is part of the new contemporary art centre in eastern Paris – a former industrial wasteland rehabilitated by Freaks architecture.

Transfer of the collection to the Reserves and development of the participatory project “Sors de ta réserve!”
