CAIRN Art Centre
The CAIRN art centre was founded in 2000 on the initiative of the Musée Gassendi in Digne-les-Bains. It is a place of artistic experimentation which supports and presents contemporary creative works in a rural environment. It proposes three exhibitions every year, produced by artists in residence, with a programme of arts events and outreach for different types of audience. In addition, the CAIRN art centre has commissioned a collection of works in the Géoparc de Haute-Provence. Scattered along mountain paths, they invite visitors to discover the landscapes in an alternative way.
The CAIRN art centre is part of the BOTOX(S) network of contemporary art in the French Alps and Riviera, the d.c.a network (French association for the development of art centres), and the ELAN network (European Land-Art Network).
