Since they were created by the State and the regions, the Regional Contemporary Art Collections (FRACs) have had the following three missions: establishing a public contemporary art heritage, disseminating these collections, and raising public awareness of contemporary art.
Since September 2013, the second generation FRAC Centre has been open to the public in the outstanding Turbulences site in Orléans, in a building designed by the architects Jakob+MacFarlane. In these premises, by way of permanent and temporary exhibitions, the FRAC shows pieces from its huge collection devoted to the relations between contemporary art and experimental architecture, now internationally acclaimed, and made up of almost 600 works, 800 architectural maquettes and more than 15,000 drawings.
