Frac Centre-Val de Loire honours the 1960's-1980's spanish experimental scene
experimental scene of the 1960’s and 1980’s. The retrospective portrays the incredible adventure of the University of Madrid’s Computing Center, which brought together artists, architects, engineers, scientists and intellectuals to explore the possibilities offered by automatic computer generated calculation. These pioneers formed a community whose - collective - experience working at the crossroads of art and computing asserted a different form of artistic production between disciplines.
Since the beginning of the 1990's; Frac (regional fund of contemporary art) of the region of Central-Val de Loire, asserts itself as an important space dedicated to building a relationship between art and architecture. With 400 artists and architects represented, today Frac's collection, on an international scale, is one of the three most important collections, dedicated to architecture (alongside those of the Centre Pompidou and the MoMa).
