The LUMA Foundation was established in 2004 in Switzerland to support the activities of independent artists and pioneers, as well as institutions working in the fields of art, photography, publishing, documentary, and multimedia. The foundation produces and commissions challenging artistic projects combing a particular interest in environmental issues, human rights, education, and culture in the broadest sense.

The LUMA Foundation and LUMA Arles, the executive entity founded in 2014 in support of the project in Arles, are currently developing an experimental cultural center in the Parc des Ateliers in the city of Arles, France, with a core group of artistic consultants (Tom Eccles, Liam Gillick, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Philippe Parreno, Beatrix Ruf) and the architects Frank Gehry and Annabelle Selldorf and landscape architect Bas Smets. This ambitious project envisions an interdisciplinary center dedicated to the production of exhibitions and ideas, research, education, and archives.
