Artworks within everyone's reach

Making contemporary artwork accessible

The Frac institutions take on the ambitious task of making contemporary art accessible to as many people as possible.

During the interaction provided through exhibitions or meetings with artists, they challenge the public: is it necessary to understand a work of art to be affected by it? Do all questions raised by works of art need answering? Does contemporary art have to be thought-provoking or does it instead just urge you to ‘let go’ and trust in your emotions? Does a work of art have to be beautiful?

Without providing specific answers, these educational approaches should enable all visitors to embark upon their own personal journey.

Imagine new cultural outreach’ facilitation schemes

The flexibility and experimental spirit of the Frac lead them to constantly re-examine their approach in order to offer initiatives designed to raise awareness of contemporary art that are adapted to a range of visitor profiles (‘cultural outreach’ facilitation schemes).

Staunch supporters of the artists’ cause, the Frac ensure that art plays a role in stimulating receptivity and broadening minds to meet the demands of the world today.

In this context, the off-site exhibitions or numerous ‘cultural outreach’ projects conducted by the Frac are never developed on a stand-alone basis but always depend on the location they will be held in and the expected type of audience. They are participative projects, facilitating dialogue and sharing based on artworks, as well as aiding comprehension by providing the historical art context.

These occasions sow deep seeds of curiosity, acting as a gateway to the artworks’ sphere of liberty, that each individual can craft to their own tune.
