Jean Tinguely and Niki de Saint Phalle left their mark on 20th century art. Discover their works in dialogue and exciting temporary exhibitions!
L'Espace is a magical place that pays tribute to the creativity of two great artists of the 20th century. Erected in 1900, the building originally housed the Fribourg tramway depot. The memory of the place takes on a poetic dimension in dialogue with Tinguely's work. Among other things, the visitor will discover a masterpiece by Jean Tinguely: the "Retable de l'Abondance occidentale et du Mercantilisme totalitaire" (1989/90) and the 22 reliefs entitled "Remembering" (1997/98) by Niki de Saint Phalle.
In addition to the works shown on a permanent basis, the Espace regularly presents temporary exhibitions. Here you can discover Swiss and foreign creators whose works attest to a fruitful dialogue with the work of Jean Tinguely or Niki de Saint Phalle".
