Under the patronage of Mr. Emmanuel Macron, President of the Republic, and with the support of UNESCO, the Art Explora foundation, created by Frédéric Jousset, will inaugurate the first museum ship in the world and its itinerant festival crisscrossing the seas and oceans around the world to offer innovative artistic and cultural experiences.


The ARTEXPLORER catamaran sailboat will offer the possibility for artists and works to meet all audiences.

Marseille, a cosmopolitan and historic city, will offer its natural cradle on the Mediterranean for this first artistic journey from port to port.

Supported by fifteen Mediterranean countries with the exceptional collaboration of the Louvre Museum and a sound journey produced with IRCAM, the ship will be able to welcome 2000 visitors per day and will produce its festival in twenty stopover cities on board as well as at the dock with exhibitions and concerts, shows, an open-air cinema and educational workshops.

Thanks to its free and open access, this festival will encourage cultural cooperation beyond all language barriers.

Art, a means of universal communication, will sail on the blue waves to give pride of place to environmental projects and will have a most inspiring educational action.


A long-distance voyage on the waters of Baudelaire, where everything is luxury, calm and voluptuousness...
