Located in the Parc des Ateliers, a former 11 hectare railway wasteland, LUMA Arles is a unique place where the LUMA Tower designed by Frank Gehry and seven former factories from the 19th century industrial heritage interact in perfect harmony.
The gardens, park and pond surrounding the campus are the work of landscape architect Bas Smets. Designed as a journey through the region by the flora and fauna that inhabit it, the 4-hectare park is a place of life, exchanges and leisure open to all. As you stroll, works, sculptures or installations are revealed, extending the discovery.
Both a place of production and experimentation for artists and the general public, LUMA Arles hosts each year exhibitions of major artists, works by great figures of contemporary creation, specific commissions and in-situ projects. . Archives of artists, photographers or exhibitions are accessible under conditions worthy of the greatest international institutions.
These installations and exhibitions take place in the various spaces of the Parc des Ateliers, so as to offer a program throughout the year. Where always, somewhere, something is happening.
In a spirit of sharing in all its forms, LUMA Arles organizes guided tours of the Parc des Ateliers but also exhibitions, daily, in French and English.
Imagined as a place of debate, dialogue and transmission of knowledge, LUMA Arles is also transformed into a playground and also offers educational programs and family workshops in connection with its artistic program.
The Parc des Ateliers is thus conceived as a living organism which allows transversality so that culture is expressed through all its facets.
