If Napoleon Bullukian (1905-1984) has not known the Foundation that bears his name, he certainly has inspired its audacity and humanism. Since 1985, the Bullukian Foundation is committed to support and act every day around three missions: support to contemporary creation, to the applied medical research and to solidarity in favor of Armenia.

Located in the heart of Lyon, this foundation of general interest, recognized as a public utility and an umbrella foundation, is also an open-pit contemporary art center that defends a unique approach of art.

Its vast plural and modular spaces of 1,500 m2 host an ambitious program of temporary exhibitions, talks and activities, in order to encourage creation, experimentation and access to art for all audiences.

During your visit, the experience continues thanks to the crossing of its atypical garden, which reveals a monumental and vibrant work of colors by the artist Jérémy Gobé.

This arty and warm place, which encourage new and plural forms favorable to a culture in movement, is a must in the inner city of Lyon.
