"Parcours dans l'art actuel" I


Last weekend was contemporary art weekend in Versailles with an exhibition of Versailles artists at the town hall, one work per artist whose studios could be also be visited. Above: the grand staircase leading to the exhibition.

Le weekend dernier se tenait le "parcours dans l'art actuel" permettant de découvrir le travail des artistes versaillais dans leurs ateliers. Une oeuvre par artiste était par ailleurs exposée à la mairie (dont voici l'escalier monumental).

je trouve que c'est une bonne idee, a cote d'Evry ils ont fait la meme chose, et en meme temps on pouvait visiter les les ateliers des artistes

It is an elegant place for an art exhibition, Ciel. Thx for the note today. I have run virus scan and don't see anything. If it persists, maybe more extreme measures are called for . . .

Hope you enjoyed PNW and also hope your tendonitis is better.

This is a very classical environment for a contemporary art exhibition.

Des artistes a revisiter ensuite... excellente idee que ce genre d'expostion pour situer les evolutions de l'art.

Wow! I'm impressed with your town hall, and with the fact that Versailles has so many artists and with the fact that the city offers such an exhibition!
