DESCRIPTION

La Criée centre for contemporary arts is a City of Rennes cultural facility. La Criéepresents each season an ambitious new project revolving round its four creative activity platforms:

ART AT THE CENTRE:  A platform devoted to exhibitions at the Rennes art centre. Each cultural season brings four or five exhibitions, which provide support for artists working in Brittany and for others from abroad. The venue also welcomes one or two guest curators each year.

ON CONTINENTAL SHORES:  A platform committed to artists’ residencies, production of works, and exhibitions in European cities on the Atlantic Rim. International cooperative projects are a further possibility, depending on opportunities for partnership with relevant Contemporary Art bodies or in the context of cultural seasons organised abroad by CulturesFrance.

TERRITORIES IN THE MAKING:  A platform allowing for the long-term establishment of art projects in the territory of the City of Rennes: artists’ residencies in schools; twinnings with some six educational and leisure bodies every season; a partnership with a local health establishment for artists’ residencies and/or workshops.

LOOKING FORWARD:  A platform that puts intellectual stimulation at the heart of things in the art centre. The first module involves organisation of seminars and colloquia bearing directly on Contemporary Art issues. A second module emphasises the importance of the exchanges between the art centre, art schools and universities. A third module brings together artists, researchers, local government agents and social welfare actors to examine the relevance and limitations of art projects that address social issues.
