Visual Arts - Publishing - Producer / Broadcaster
Sextant et plus / Group invents, develops and implements systems for the production and distribution of contemporary art.
The association extends its activities to different types of projects:
They provide ongoing support for artists from the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, production and co-producing exhibitions, networking with the private sector, residencies, publishing individual artists' work. These are just some of the ways we promote the work of artists we support.
Projects with an international dimension, one-man shows and group shows by artists on the international art scene whose work is rarely seen in France are on show at the Friche Belle de Mai over 2-3 months a year.
The international art fair Art-O-Rama takes place every year in Marseille in the last weekend of August. It brings together high-quality selected works from 20 or so galleries around the city developing specific curatorial approaches. The event's identity is forged through the voluntarily small scale in Marseille promoting new art forms and collaboration between different forces in the art market – galleries, featured artists, special projects, Show room, Publishing Space as well as concerts, performances, round tables allowing the public to discover the multi-faced nature of the current art scene.
Producing works of art in public spaces
Sextant et plus provides optimum conditions for artists to marry their work and the public space through interactive activities and events and mediation, but also by developing the technical skills specific to each project. This combines years of savoir faire built on solid experience and a tailor-made approach for each artwork commissioned.
Events for the public
Through the events it organises, Sextant et plus designs and organises educational activities and public participation: guided tours, audio-guides, educational packs, classroom projects and a programme of activities for children, giving young people the keys to understanding and producing contemporary art.
Private Sector Participation
Designing and implementing cultural programmes, giving advice and bringing organisations together who want to get involved in the Arts. With a wealth of experience behind them, Sextant et plus has built strong links with businesses and offers support to the private sector in the form of specific skills, networking, consulting and supplying. Design and one-off production events or development plans for businesses allow Sextant et plus to provide multi-disciplinary support for fresh approaches to problem-solving and innovative, strategic project management.
