Studio National des Arts Contemporains
A two-year program of art training, production, exhibition and promotion.
A post-graduate art school and audio-visual research and production centre, Le Fresnoy takes advanced students for a two-year course run by guest artist-professors who themselves produce new work.
In a widely acclaimed building designed by Bernard Tschumi, Le Fresnoy offers the public a programme of art films, contemporary art, concerts and other artistic events. The works produced by the visiting artist-professors and the young artists are also shown in various events in France and abroad.
The Fresnoy is supported by the Ministry of Culture and Communication, the Nord-Pas de Calais regional council and the city of Tourcoing.
