François Bret Prize

The François Bret Prize of the Fine Arts College of Marseille (Beaux-Arts de Marseille) – National Institute of Higher Arts Education of the Mediterranean, Marseille (INSEAMM) Art & design


The painter François Bret was the director who convinced the municipality of Marseille in the late 60’s to build the school on the Luminy campus (located next to the Calanques National Park in the south of the city). Involved in the reform of art and architecture education in the seventies, he was, for example, one of the first directors in France to give photography a proper place in an art school, by inviting Lucien Clergue (a famous French photographer from Arles, France) among others. He also welcomed the “Supports/Surfaces” painters to the Art College and gave an opportunity to the famous sculptor César to teach there. It is under his direction that the school entered a new era. In 1976, the young local art scene had an exhibition in the Museum of Modern Arts in Paris. Giving the name of François Bret to this Prize doesn’t mean looking backwards but building a bright future on deep historical roots. The François Bret Prize of the Fine Arts College of Marseille is awarded each year by a jury of professionals to two young graduates of the College, one in art, one in design, who are put in the spotlight during the Art-0-Rama fair and mentored by the members of the jury.

Performance by Avel Plégat

Les chardons comme des baisers brûlants


Avel Plégat will propose a performated lecture of his texts which weave the story of a thistle-body, a body who wants to become home with other bodies, transferring bodies from roots to flowers and especially thorns.


Performance by Zoé Ledoux



“TartES” is a project of mobile exhibitions led by the designer Simon Dubédat and the artist Zoé Ledoux. Initiated by the desire to create moments of work around the kitchen, these exhibitions take the form of workshops leading to an edible opening.

The pie is above all a pretext to make: it is a culinary object made to be cut up, shared and destined to circulate from one individual to another so that each of the guests participates in the meal. By taking “TartES” to different eco-systems of the art world, we offer ourselves the possibility to reflect on the sculptural and performative aspect of the cooking moments. Thus, “TartES” comes to life in the form of mobile, fully edible exhibitions taking place over the course of an evening. “TartES” exhibitions travel to different art centers, galleries, collectives and museums. For the majority of “TartES” exhibitions, we invite artists and cooks to work with us and take part in the project. For the “Habitacles” exhibition, “TartES” is represented by Zoé Ledoux and will be installed in the Friche de la belle de Mai with the help of Les Grandes Tables to work on this new proposal.


With “TartES” we want to create moments of cooking and tasting, of exchanges and encounters, similar to the moments spent in our kitchens.


The first edition of “TartES” took place at the house of the collective Fossil Futur in Meymac. The project will soon move to the DLKC workshops in Saverdun as well as to La Station in Nice, for the next winter.
