Le Fresnoy is a sort of "hi-tech Medici villa", a postgraduate art and audiovisual research centre where students are trained to create very diverse artworks using professional audiovisual techniques. With an unprecedented approach to education, it is an entirely new kind of centre for production, experimentation and broadcasting. Each year, its intense buzz of artistic creation yields more than fifty new works in the fields of cinema, photography, art and music. Exhibitions are regularly put on, showcasing this prolific production of art and also hosting outside works of international scope.
