Since they were created by the State and the regions, the Regional Contemporary Art Collections (FRACs) have had the following three missions: establishing a public contemporary art heritage, disseminating these collections, and raising public awareness of contemporary art.

Since September 2013, the second generation FRAC Centre has been open to the public in the outstanding Turbulences site in Orléans, in a building designed by the architects Jakob+MacFarlane. In these premises, by way of permanent and temporary exhibitions, the FRAC shows pieces from its huge collection devoted to the relations between contemporary art and experimental architecture, now internationally acclaimed, and made up of almost 600 works, 800 architectural maquettes and more than 15,000 drawings.

Missions
You will develop and implement the FRAC’s artistic and cultural project, based on strategic guidelines drawn up by the State and the region.

In this framework, you will define an ambitious policy for the acquisition of works, coherent with the collection’s identity and bolstering the FRAC’s international position.

You will also introduce a demanding and diversified programme of exhibitions and events in Orléans and the region by encouraging inter-regional partnerships and cooperation.

You will propose innovative policies involving different kinds of public and mediation, aimed especially at schools.

You will set up an active sponsorship strategy.

These guidelines will involve a new organization which it will be your job to establish.

Lastly, you will be in charge of the association’s human resources and budget, and you will supervise the management of the establishment.

Our ideal candidate
Senior executive and experienced manager, with Bac +5 years higher education in the History of Art and Architecture, you have solid experience in managing and organizing a cultural team.  You have in-depth knowledge of the issues associated with artistic creation, in the fields of architecture and contemporary art.  You also have a healthy appetite for organization and teamwork and strong skills in management, project supervision and communication. You have a B driver’s license and are fluent in French and in English.  

Candidates must send a letter of application accompanied by a CV, before 7pm on 16 July to: contact [​at​] frac-centre.fr or Les Turbulences – Frac Centre, 88 rue du Colombier, 45000 Orléans, France.
