Villa Arson review Rate it

Set in vast parkland, this 18th-century villa is now under the aegis of the French cultural ministry as a catch-all centre for contemporary art. There's an art school on site, as well as the Centre National d'Art Contemporain, an exhibition space devoted to cutting-edge work grouped under certain themes. The recent 'Transmission' show, for instance, explored the use of various forms of communication in art, and included some exhibits by Turner Prize-winner Jeremy Deller. You can listen to heated discussions in the small café (8.30am-5pm Mon-Thur; 8.30am-3pm Fri) while you relax with a coffee.
