Villa Carmignac - Exhibition Space
8.9/10 976 

The Villa Carmignac opened its doors to the public in June 2018 on the island of Porquerolles. Visitors will discover contemporary artworks of the Carmignac Collection in the beautiful surroundings of a national park, along with temporary exhibitions, a sculpture garden, and a rich program of cultural events.
The Fondation, created in 2000 under the initiative of Édouard Carmignac, opened to the public in June 2018 in Porquerolles, a Mediterranean island often compared to a floating forest on the sea.
Visitors will discover contemporary artworks of the Carmignac Collection in the beautiful surroundings of a national park, along with temporary exhibitions, a sculpture garden, and a rich program of cultural events.

The island is not the result of a random decision: “As in all legends or initiatory journeys, the voyage to the island is always a dual crossing – both physical and psychological. It is about crossing over to the other side,” states the Director of the foundation, Charles Carmignac.

Once on the island, the visitor will discover a Provençal farmhouse blended into the landscape. Inside, the galleries expand to reveal 2,000 square meters of exhibition spaces. Natural light, filtered through a ceiling filled with water, illuminates the spaces hidden beneath the surface.
Outside, a selection of works inspired by the surroundings is dispersed over a 15-hectare garden, conceived by landscape designer Louis Benech.

Reservations are made online and entries are limited to 50 people per half-hour, to offer close contact with the artworks.
