Since the beginning, mankind has attempted to express its place in the universe through the representation of art.
Such vision, still of great concern in art by indigenous peoples and especially Aboriginal people from Australia, is central to Fondation Opale.
At the Art gallery in Lens, Fondation Opale offers the public the opportunity to explore contemporary art concerned with universal themes in the form of temporary exhibitions, as well as in conferences, workshops and meet and greets with artists.
As a contemporary exhibition centre, Fondation Opale encourages dialogue through art and is seen as a powerful catalyst to bring people and their respective cultures together.
From its breathtaking views of Lac du Louché to its snowcapped mountains in Valais, the solar panels on the façade of this Art gallery are also reflective in the design by architect Jean-Pierre Emery.
