Art in Motion at Station Alexandre

Nestled in the heart of the Canet neighborhood, Station Alexandre is in constant transformation. Here you’ll find neither gallery nor theatre, the cultural space emerges according to what occupies the former freight yard, today an absolute must in Marseille.
By Mélissa Darré

In the early twentieth century, the trader Victor Regis commissioned a tin and steel shed to house a freight yard for his oil mill. From within its metal frame by Gustave Eiffel, the building was important in the production of vegetable oil needed for the manufacture of traditional Marseille soap. Due for demolition in 2004, the building finally got a new lease on life, transforming into the Station Alexandre.

Of the station and its various annexes, the great architecture of the 50s remains, housing a range of activities. Offices, shops and restaurants are side by side on this site steeped in the rich history of its harbor district. More than just a place to wander around, we come across, around the corner from a gallery, an innovative cultural space that evolves day by day.

Live performances, concerts and exhibitions come to life in the Gustave Hall, the Victor Pavilion, the Passage or on the Quai Félix of this Provencal gem. The many original productions reflect the developers’ desire to create a one-of-a-kind artistic venue.
