Le Quartier (The Quarter)

Mise à jour le : 01.12.2011 | 16h52
Le Quartier centre d'art contemporain

The Quarter has been developing a contemporary creative laboratory in Quimper since 1990. By organizing four exhibitions a year in its galleries, the association would like to introduce Quimper’s people to contemporary art or nourish amateur curiosity.

Cultural activities and meetings with artists are organized around exhibitions in order to discuss the exhibited works, to participate in and assist the process of creation and gathering of material.

The library space offers a selection of works associated with exhibitions or with current contemporary Breton art news for consultation or for purchase.  The Quarter offers children a choice of age-adapted art books.

Contemporary Art support

The Quarter gives artists the financial means, technical aid and human resources necessary for them to work and exhibit, with priority given to the Quimper public to view their work.

The Quarter is supported by Quimper Council, the Ministry of Culture and Communication, the Regional Management of Brittany Cultural Affairs, the County Councils of Finistère and the Region.
