Our areas of expertise
The global management of monuments, museums and art centres
Culturespaces has always specialised in the global management of cultural establishments. In order to perfect the visitor experience, Culturespaces directly manages—using its own personnel—all the services offered to the visitors by the establishments: reception, ticket sales, cultural programmes, cultural gift shops, teashops, catering, garden maintenance, and so on.
This management is carried out in a network and the specialised services are pooled in the head office. It is adapted to the various types of venue:
- museums and art centres, such as the Musée Jacquemart-André, the Musée Maillol, the Hôtel de Caumont, and the Cité de l’Automobile.
- prestigious historic monuments, such as the Nîmes Amphitheatre, the Roman Theatre in Orange, and the Castle of Les Baux-de-Provence.
- remarkable gardens and collections, like those of the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild.
- digital art centres, such as the Carrières de Lumières and the Atelier des Lumières.
Producing and holding temporary exhibitions
Within Culturespaces, the Exhibitions Department has a staff of ten experts who, each year, conceive and produce a minimum of six high-quality temporary exhibitions and artistic projects. The Department collaborates with an international and national network of specialists, comprised of art historians and curators from major museums, who contribute to the artistic, cultural, and scientific excellence of the projects. Culturespaces also produces two immersive digital exhibitions each year.
The creation of art centres
Culturespaces has introduced many cultural projects. Its teams are capable of creating projects ex nihilo and ensuring the global management of new cultural centres:
- multidisciplinary art centres, such as the Hôtel de Caumont in Aix-en-Provence, which, via its temporary exhibition programme, has been visited by more than 300,000 people in its second year of operations.
- digital art centres such as the Atelier des Lumières in Paris, which is scheduled to open in 2018, the Bunker des Lumières in South Korea and the Bassins des Lumières, scheduled to open in the spring of 2020.
These new cultural centres directly contribute to the transmission of culture to a very broad audience and to the development of tourism and culture around France.
