Seeking Director


The Regional Contemporary Art Collection [FRAC] of the Centre—Val de Loire Region has a strong identity underwritten by a collection “devoted to postwar forms of experimental architecture and the relations between art and architecture.” This second generation FRAC has been installed since September 2013 in Les Turbulences, the new building designed by the architects Jakob+MacFarlane on the outstanding site of the former Subsistances militaires in Orléans. The FRAC’s specific collection, which is internationally recognized, is made up of almost 600 works, 800 architectural maquettes and more than 15,000 drawings. In the short term, the FRAC will be embarking on a structural change towards an EPCC [Public Establishment of Cultural Cooperation]. To develop its tasks, guarantee its day-to-day management, and effect its structural change, the FRAC is looking for a new Director.

Based on the strategic guidelines drawn up by the State and the Region, he/she will develop and implement an artistic and cultural project that is in tune with the collection’s identity and international position. In this spirit, he/she will develop the FRAC’s activities by:
–guaranteeing the enrichment and promotion of the collection and its dissemination at regional, national and international levels
–inventing original and innovative transmission systems that are tailored and adapted to all manner of public
–proposing a diversified programme at Les Turbulences, while at the same time developing partnerships and inter-regional cooperation
–developing communication, specific resources and patronage

In addition, as Director, he/she will introduce the organization necessary for the development of the establishment’s project, be in charge of human and budgetary resources, provide the establishment’s day-to-day management, and accompany the structural change to EPCC status.
