Discovery contemporary works in the Pays de la Loire region, which has a host of productions full of emotions and surprise in often unexpected places... Here's a guided tour in pictures.
In this region, contemporary art has invaded towns, countryside and seaside. Aside from the traditional galleries, it has worked its way into everything, from little chapels to factories as well as an old public school, a thousand-year-old abbey and a big converted café. World-famous artists unveil their creations alongside rising stars, who see the region as a truly stimulating playground.
Here's a little (but by no means exhaustive) selection of sizzling cultural sites. Indeed, we could have mentioned the Musée de l’Abbaye Sainte-Croix in Sables d’Olonne, the Hab Galerie or the Lieu Unique in Nantes, the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire in Cholet, the FRAC des Pays de la Loire in Carquefou, the Domaine départemental de la Garenne Lemot, the Centre d’Art in Montrelais, or the Beaux-Arts museums in Angers, Nantes and Le Mans… These are just some of the additional sites to explore if you fancy quenching your thirst for discovery further.
