The Frac Île-de-France / Le Plateau (“Frac” meaning “regional contemporary art collection”) supports contemporary art creation, with several complementary missions: to enrich and broadcast its collection; to hold an exhibition program at Le Plateau; to hold an educational program for the public; and to have a publishing policy linked to the exhibitions as well as to the collection.
The organization’s collection of more than 900 artworks echoes the great diversity in the field of contemporary art, while particular attention is paid to the younger generation of artists.
The artistic agenda of Le Plateau—the exhibition space—is centered around four annual exhibitions in the shape of either solo or group exhibitions, which both enable new production and realize specific projects. Every other year, an exhibition is held on the premises with artworks from the collection, giving viewers the opportunity to discover the latest acquisitions. A guest curator is also associated with the artistic schedule for a two-year period. He or she coordinates a set of exhibitions at Le Plateau, as well as two proposals with works from the collection throughout the Île-de-France region.
Our educational program—carried out by l’Antenne, our service for the public—aims to offer the widest program possible, dedicated to all types of public.
