This catalog provides an overview of the International Workshops of the Frac des Pays de la Loire from 1984 to 2007, based on 6 undocumented workshops. It is edited following workshops that have not been published, namely the XIth, XIIIth, XIVth, XVth, XVIth and XVIIth International Workshops.
This edition aims to study the issue of artist residencies on an international level and more specifically within the framework of a Frac, knowing that the works thus produced represent one third of the Frac des Pays de la Loire collection.
From 1984 to 1987 in Fontevraud, from 1988 to 1993 in Clisson, from 1995 to 1999 in Saint-Nazaire and since 2001 in Carquefou, the Frac des Pays de la Loire welcomes each year young artists in residence within the framework of the International Workshops. A pioneer in this field, the Frac des Pays de la Loire is developing, through this original experience in France, an activity of support for creation which contributes to significantly enriching its collection.
