Creation of a work of art as part of the centenary of Villa Noailles by an artist or an artistic team.
Villa Noailles in Hyères (Var), Centre d'art contemporain d'intérêt national, is one of the first French constructions of modern style. Commissioned by the Viscount de Noailles and his wife Marie-Laure, its realization began in 1923 and was completed in 1925.
As part of its centenary, the Art Centre is calling for applications for the creation of an artistic work, in a permanent and visible installation, as a "signal" showing the constant evolution of the building. This work will take its place on the entire site of the Saint Bernard park (garden in terraces, forecourt of the villa, attached gardens, terraces and the roof of the building). It will commemorate and celebrate the centenary of the monument, as a continuation of the history of the site and its founders.
