Besançon

The Frac Franche-Comté is an exceptional place dedicated to the discovery of contemporary artistic creation. It is intended to be a place for exchanges and meetings open to all audiences. Designed by Kengo Kuma, this building with a human dimension and a soft and luminous aesthetic was designed to make it easier for visitors to discover the works as they wander around. He discovers a constantly renewed programme based on an ambitious programme of temporary exhibitions and multidisciplinary cultural proposals.

This programming is based on the Frac collection, which since 2006 has favoured works that address the vast question of time, a problem chosen for its permanence in art history and current events, but also for its roots in regional history. Since 2011, within this group of works exploring the question of Time, the Frac has been developing an axis dedicated to so-called "sound" works.


In response to the exhibitions, the public is invited to a wide variety of events: meetings with artists, conferences, performances, video evenings, concerts, dance...
The Audience Department is also developing a programme for young audiences: discovery visits, workshops and practical training courses for children and adolescents, sessions dedicated to families and a rich programme for schoolchildren.
