Arpenter le monde (Exploring the world)

On the occasion of the celebration of its 40th anniversary, Frac Bretagne settles down at the Ateliers des Capucins this summer. Founded in 1981, Frac Bretagne has built a collection of contemporary art recognized nationally and internationally. Often unknown to the general public, it nevertheless gathers more than 5,500 works by more than 1,500 artists of more than 125 nationalities. This collection is a magnificent heritage owned by the Bretons.

The exhibition offered to the Brest public plays with the identity of this emblematic place that are the Ateliers des Capucins, both a historic industrial site of the Cité du Ponant, a cultural space, a playground, a platform for meetings and experiences and balcony overlooking the sea.

Arpenter le monde brings together works by a dozen artists of all origins and generations. Whether drawing, sculpture, film, painting or photography, each of their works evokes in their own way and in very different artistic languages travel, wandering, dreamed horizons. Bigoudènes from historic Brittany, a strange lying tree, a Trojan horse, an unusual trip to the Mediterranean, so many experiences that invite you to a dreamlike journey through this magical place in Brest.

A partnership between Frac Bretagne and Les Ateliers des Capucins, Brest.
