Frac Grand Large — Hauts-de-France Reviews

On 5 floors, the FRAC exhibits works of contemporary art, in a somewhat disparate way, and according to a logic that greatly escapes the uninitiated. On the 5th floor, a panoramic view allows you to admire the beach, the sea, the industrial area... Too bad the view is blurred by the design of the windows, in ovoid-shaped Plexiglas... The gigantic AP2 hall houses a few other works, without any other layout. This old building where the boats under construction were "prepared" has therefore remained in its juice, and this is perhaps the most moving part. Note the courteous welcome and anxious to inform you.
Allez à la FRAC de Dunkerque,c’est avoir tout d’abord la possibilité de déambuler dans les anciens chantiers navals de la ville...Ainsi on peut côtoyer des œuvres gigantesques exposées dans la halle A... more »Go to the FRAC in Dunkirk, it's first to have the opportunity to stroll through the old shipyards of the city ... Thus one can rub shoulders with gigantic works exhibited in the AP2 hall. It may be a little surprising but this art and industry wedding is awesome! With a little patience, it is easy to meet former workers nostalgic for this glorious era of construction sites and always ready to give you a multitude of information about the place... So at the end of the Malo dam, don't hesitate to enter (free on Sunday)
Huge spaces, I'm not really on modern art
I recommend stopping here. It is amazing to see the filming of Dunkerque and behind the scenes.
