Fondation d’entreprise Francès*


Created in 2009 by Estelle and Hervé Francès, a couple of contemporary art collectors, the eponymous corporate foundation is conceived as a laboratory for reflection on contemporary work. With 23 in-situ exhibitions and more than 60 exhibitions outside its walls, the Foundation is the first to be established in the Oise department, located in Senlis, with the aim of democratisation. It weaves partnerships with private and public institutions internationally and has a collection of 600 works of art by 250 artists from more than 50 countries. The Francès Collection reveals a common thread, that of “man and his excesses”, which then becomes a source of inspiration and asserted convictions.
