Why take advantage?

The Fonds Hélène & Édouard Leclerc pour la Culture is dedicated to all forms of art. Through the organization of large-scale exhibitions, the FHEL aims to make contemporary art accessible to a broad public and to present artistic expressions that are emblematic of our times.

1,500,000 visitors to Landerneau:
Since its opening in 2012, the FHEL has welcomed over 1,500,000 visitors! If it has become a meeting place for contemporary art lovers, the site welcomes an ever more varied and numerous public, of all ages and backgrounds. Every year, a new temporary exhibition takes over the 1,200 m² hall.

The FHEL has hosted works by Joan Miró in 2013, Alberto Giacometti in 2015, Marc Chagall in 2016, Pablo Picasso in 2017, Enki Bilal in 2021, Ernest Pignon-Ernest in 2022, and most recently John Howe, illustrator of the works of Tolkien.
