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 and the Hôtel de Caumont.
- prestigious historic monuments, such as the Castle of Les Baux-de-Provence.
- digital art centres, such as the Carrières des Lumières, the Atelier des Lumières and the Bassins 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 DIGITAL produces about thirty immersive digital exhibitions per 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 2 million people since the opening in 2015.
- digital art centres such as the Atelier des Lumières, which was visited by 5 millions of visitors since its opening in 2018, the Bassins des Lumières in Bordeaux, the Carrières des Lumières at Les Baux-de-Provence or the Hall des Lumières in New York.
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.
