The doors of the 23 FRAC (Regional Contemporary Art Collection) are open to everyone on 5th and 6th November 2016 for the FRAC weekend.
The aim of this national event is to bring new audiences to all the FRAC and introduce them to contemporary works with the artists present.
During the FRAC weekend a specially created cultural programme will be accessible everywhere in France simultaneously. Many artists will be invited to promote today’s art through special opportunities for exchange. Guided visits will be on offer and teams will be available to provide a personal welcome at all times. This is a great opportunity to discover what goes on behind the scenes of the FRAC with particular emphasis on artistic creation. Accessible to all and designed for visitor participation, the FRAC weekend will be a unique experience for discovering the whole range of their activities: collecting; distributing; explaining; producing; conversing; innovating; sharing, etc.
