The Region Fund of Contemporary Art (Frac)
For all audiences and all territories
Les Abattoirs, Museum - Frac Occitanie Toulouse: an international institution with a regional vocation
Both a French museum and a Regional Fund for Contemporary Art with national and international influence, Les Abattoirs develops a program of exhibitions based on collections of modern and contemporary art on its site in Toulouse, and outside the walls in partnership with regional actors.
Its distribution team puts all its know-how at your service to assist you in your exhibition projects. It intervenes in the hanging and the cultural and educational actions based on a will of meeting and sharing around the works.
Promoting the circulation and knowledge of public collections, reinforcing the attractiveness of the territories, innovating in the transmission of current artistic practices constitute the singularity of the Abattoirs' field of action.
A collection of modern and contemporary art, an actor and witness of its time
The collection is the primary tool for the dissemination of artistic creation.
The Abattoirs' collection brings together nearly 3,500 works covering the second half of the 20th and the beginning of the 21st centuries. It is essentially made up of paintings, graphic works, photos, films and a set of sculptures and installations.
Every year, the Abattoirs continue to develop their historical collection and acquire works by emerging and established artists in order to reflect contemporary creation and the evolution of the world around us.
