Adelaïde, Wilfrid Almendra

Venue: Panorama, Friche la Belle de Mai

Fræme and Frac Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur are joining together to offer an unprecedented perspective on Wilfrid Almendra's work, at the Panorama of the Friche la Belle de Mai and at the Plateau perspectives of the Frac, curated by Sofia Lemos and Muriel Enjalran. Conceived as a continuous landscape in the spaces of two of the most emblematic contemporary art venues in the city of Marseille, Adelaide carries on with this process of radical ecology, unfolding a fragile and monumental work, both unreachable and immersive.

An exhibition in partnership with Frac Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, Fondation Calouste Gulbenkian, Friche la Belle de Mai.
With the support of : DRAC Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur — Ministère de la Culture, Région Sud — Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, Conseil Départemental des Bouches-du-Rhône, Ville de Marseille

Art-o-rama

16th edition of the International Contemporary Art Fair.
Venue : Friche la Belle de Mai

After a successful 2021 edition, Art-o-rama invites you in 2022 for the launch of the new contemporary art season! As a key event and gateway for galleries to European art fairs, Art-o-rama offers a unique and demanding selection of emerging local and international art scenes. More than 60 galleries and publishers will be featured in this 16th edition in Marseille and online with the Immaterial Salon, celebrating a brand new section dedicated to contemporary design.

At the centre of a beautiful excitement, Art-o-rama offers each year a panorama of an unequalled cultural heritage, an immersion in the leading artistic places of the wider southern region, from Monaco to Montpellier, passing through Arles, Hyères, Nice and of course Marseille.

XOXO. Prune Phi, Sandar Tun Tun

Venue: Salle des Machines, Friche la Belle de Mai
Opening August 25, 2022 from 5 pm to 20h. Free entry.

In 2020, Prune Phi and Sandar Tun Tun each had the opportunity to settle in a studio at La Friche, as part of a Covid support program, initiated by Fræme, Triangle Astérides and La Friche la Belle de mai. Invited to occupy the Galerie de la Salle des Machines, Prune Phi and Sandar Tun Tun think of the exhibition as a discussion where different languages meet in the concerns of the practice. Dialogue as a working process has allowed them to intuitively find themselves around notions of spirituality, communicability and transmission, and participatory practices, collection, distortion. XOXO is an invitation to enter into a moment of exchange between two artists, intimately linked to the duration of the exhibition and confronted with their
personal projects.

Produced by Fræme and Triangle-Astérides, centre d’art contemporain d’intérêt national. Coproduction by la Friche la Belle de Mai.
