Following the long-term loan of its contemporary art collection to Les Abattoirs, Musée - Frac Occitanie Toulouse, the CNES Space Observatory announced in 2017 that the CNES arts-sciences laboratory would pursue its collaboration with the museum in Toulouse. The two institutions are joining forces to present, from 5 April to 26 August 2018, a new exhibition entitled Zero Gravity that will deal with the artistic exploration of the adventure of space and the figure of the artist as an astronaut.
