Excursion to LAAC (Lieu d’Art et Action Contemporaine). Dunkerque. France.

In the heart of a garden of sculptures, water, stone and wind overlooking Dunkirk Beach, the LAAC contemporary art museum defies the sky with its remarkable, white-ceramic architecture.

As effervescent and gay as the Pop Years, the LAAC is home to an exceptional collection of over 1,500 artworks mirroring the 1940s to ‘80s (includingCircus by Karel Appel, Car Crash by Andy Warhol and Valise Expansion by César), works alternately presented according to the changing exhibition programme. In the museum’s not-to-be-missed Graphic Arts Room, visitors set off on a unique artistic exploration, with the possibility of discovering nearly 200 drawings and prints exhibited in drawers and sliding showcases.
This friendly, convivial museum offers a multitude of fun and interactive tools for a visit with family or friends, as well as a rich, year-long events calendar combining the fine and performing arts.
With the FRAC (“Regional Collection of Contemporary Art”) located just nearby, the LAAC constitutes a veritable “centre of excellence” for contemporary art.
