Expo 2020 – The Institut Français presents Art explora

From october 29 to november 11

Art Explora will inaugurate an ambitious display program of artworks created by artists on the occasion of the Dubai World Expo. On the esplanade of the France Pavilion, 6 contemporary French artists’ artworks of international renown will be exhibited. This presentation will last two weeks and will be devoted to the theme of the nature in an urban environment.


In addition to this display exhibition, Art Explora and the Institut Français in the UAE will also support a French film screening program, focusing on ecological and environmental issues. This film program will be shown at the Jameel Arts Center in Dubai and  at the Sharjah Art Foundation.


Art Explora was created by businessman Frédéric Jousset (co-founder of Webhelp) on November 9, 2019. Endowed with €4 million, the fund aims to share culture with as many people as possible and thus combat inequalities in access to creation.

In 15 months, Art Explora has gone from a concept to a global reality with a dozen permanent staff, 750 volunteers invested in 5 countries and large-scale projects (the European Prize for Innovative Museums, an online education platform labeled by the Sorbonne University, the boat-museum and its travelling cultural festival, an artist residence in Montmartre).

Art Explora has also implemented concrete actions to bring the arts closer to all audiences, such as taking young people to its partner museums (British Museum, Prado, Louvre) or share short online conferences with seniors with volunteers from its Allô Miró program.

This spring also marks the opening of a project of artist residencies from around the world: the Explora Art Villas.
