LUMA Arles 2024 Program

33 Avenue Victor Hugo, 13200 Arles, France

This summer, timed to the 20th anniversary of the LUMA Foundation and the 10th anniversary of Frank Gehry’s LUMA Tower, LUMA Arles is offering a dynamic arts program spotlighting celebrated pioneers and exciting contemporary voices. The first phase of the two-stage program includes a Van Gogh-inspired interactive exhibition by the Amsterdam-based artists DRIFT, as well as an installation by the American artist Diana Thater that features a robot-gardener tending a post-apocalyptic Earth. Highlights from the second phase (launching June 30) include a curation of Lee Friedlander’s photos by filmmaker Joel Coen (Fargo, No Country for Old Men) and the debut of a new opera, The Great Yes, The Great No, by the South African artist William Kentridge. —Paulina Prosnitz
