LUMA Arles is an interdisciplinary creative campus where thinkers, artists, researchers and scientists question the relationships between art, culture, environment, human rights and research.
Located in the Parc des Ateliers, a former railway wasteland covering an area of 11 hectares, LUMA Arles is a unique place where The 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 fauna and flora that inhabit it, the 4-hectare park is a place of life, exchange and leisure open to all. As you wander around, works of art, sculptures and installations are revealed, extending the discovery.

Both a place of production and experimentation for artists and the general public, LUMA Arles hosts annual exhibitions of major artists, works by leading figures in contemporary creation, specific commissions and in-situ projects. Archives of artists, photographers and exhibitions are accessible in conditions worthy of the greatest international institutions.

These installations and exhibitions take place in the different spaces of the Parc des Ateliers, in order to offer a year-round programme. Where always, somewhere, something is happening.

In a spirit of sharing in all its forms, LUMA Arles organises daily guided tours of the Parc des Ateliers and the exhibitions in French and English.

Conceived as a place for debate, dialogue and the transmission of knowledge, LUMA Arles is also transformed into a playground and offers educational programmes and family workshops in connection with its artistic programme.

The Parc des Ateliers is thus conceived as a living organism that allows for transversality so that culture can be expressed through all its facets.
