Located in La Joliette, at the gate of the Euroméditerranée in Marseille, the Frac Sud has been an emblematic site of what is today called a “new generation” Frac since the 2013 inauguration of the building that houses it, designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. With a rich collection of over 1400 works, and representing over 650 artists, the Frac operates throughout a regional, national and international territory, and is developing new ways of circulating the collection through a network of partners. A true artistic experimentation laboratory, its program explores phenomena and issues that pervade and configure our societies.

The Fonds régional d’art contemporain is financed by the Ministry of Culture, the regional directorate of cultural affairs for Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, and the Région Sud Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. It is fully in line with the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region’s cultural policy favored by its president Renaud Muselier, and with the Ministry of Culture’s labelling policy.
