Associated to the LUMA Foundation, LUMA Arles – founded in 2014 in support of the Arles project – is currently developing an experimental cultural center in the Parc des Ateliers in the city of Arles, France, working with a core group of artistic consultants (Tom Eccles, Liam Gillick, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Philippe Parreno and Beatrix Ruf) and the architects Frank Gehry, Annabelle Selldorf and landscape architect Bas Smets. This ambitious project envisions an interdisciplinary center dedicated to the production of exhibitions and ideas, research, education, and archives and is supported by a growing number of public and private partnerships.
Construction started after the ground-breaking ceremony in April 2014; the opening of the main building on campus is scheduled for 2018.
