The structure, voyons voir contemporary art and territory had been created 2007. It develops an artists in residence network and the creation of visual artworks in Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur area, within

vineyards and landscaped estates but also within patrimony places in Aix-en-Provence and surrounding areas (between the three mountains Sainte Victoire, Sainte Baume and Mounts Aurélien).

Through its residences and following activities (exhibitions, integration of artworks in landscapes and patrimony routes, editions), the structure works for a better legibility of the current artistic practices
