What’s on

LUMA Arles in the Parc des Ateliers

In 2013, Maja Hoffmann launched LUMA Arles, an interdisciplinary creative campus where, through exhibitions, conferences, live performances, architecture and design, thinkers, artists, researchers, and scientists question the relationships between art, culture, environment, education, and research.

Both a place of production and experimentation for artists and the public, LUMA Arles hosts annual exhibitions of major artists, works by leading figures in contemporary creation, specific commissions, and in situ projects. Archives of artists, photographers, and exhibitions are accessible in conditions worthy of the greatest international institutions.

This artistic programing is supervised and developed by Maja Hoffmann and the “Core Group” a group of international advisors comprising curators, directors of cultural institutions, and artists, namely Hans Ulrich Obrist, Beatrix Ruf, Liam Gillick, Tom Eccles, and Philippe Parreno. New members are expected to join the group soon.

Since its creation, LUMA Arles has commissioned and presented the work of more than 100 artists, thinkers, and innovators across multiple venues in the city of Arles.

Fondation Vincent van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh is a pivotal figure in the art of the 20th century. His oeuvre continues to influence artists and exert an unprecedented magnetism upon the public right up to the present. It was in Arles that Van Gogh produced – within the space of just 15 months between February 1988 and May 1888 – his finest masterpieces.
Inaugurated in April 2014, the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles pays due homage to the work of Van Gogh while at the same time exploring his impact upon art today. This relationship with contemporary art was enshrined within the principles of the Fondation right from its conception.
