Centre Pompidou Announces Five Week Festival of Artistic Encounters
The festival offers a privileged opportunity to renew our perception of creation and contemporary issues.

PARIS.- From October 21st until November 23rd 2009, the Centre Pompidou’s new festival invites a wide-ranging audience to discover today’s creation in all its shapes and colours.

A time of excitement. The festival offers five weeks of daily programmes: exhibitions, shows, conferences, screenings, living paintings, concerts and performances punctuate the programme of this continuous laboratory.

A time of artistic encounters. The festival offers the Centre Pompidou’s crossdisciplinary identity to contemporary creators in order to help them in their quest to break down barriers.

A time of emergence. At the heart of the art scene’s debates, the festival asserts the Centre Pompidou’s involvement with artists whose artworks offer new forms of expression and contributes to the renewal of the language of exhibition and performance.

It offers a privileged opportunity to renew our perception of creation and contemporary issues.

In the heart of the festival, in the heart of the Centre Pompidou and in the heart of the city, the Galerie Sud welcomes a set of artworks in Heimo Zobernig’s flexible scenography. Among the artists taking part in the festival are: Carsten Höller, Andrea Blum, Jorge Pardo, Manfred Pernice, tobias rehberger, Franz West and Zlatan Vulkosavljevic, Olivier Vadrot and Cocktail Designers. As many different sites to be freely explored by the visitor…

The stage settings, also created by Heimo Zobernig, allow daily performances that add rhythm to the festival programme’s constant renewal : Bruits de bouche, performance conferences, Rosebud, tableaux vivants, objets Vidéo Non Identifiés. Among the daily guests: Donatienne Michel-Dansac, Eduard Escoffet, Jean-Philippe Antoine, Andrea Fraser, Olivier Cadiot, Emmanuelle Pireyre, Ulla von Brandenburg, Rachel Peupke, Semiconductor…

Today’s painting in thirty pictures will offer a daily foray into the latest trends in painting. Among the artists: John Tremblay, Edi Hila, Anselm Reyle, Sarah Morris, Yan Pei-Ming, Elizabeth Peyton…

Designing original communication tools and signs, Pierre Leguillon is also “the man of thresholds and crossings”. His Teatrino Palermo (a reconstruction of blinky Palermo’s theatre) will offer a selection of short pieces with regular interludes. Among the participants: Patricia Falguières, Conny Purtill, Boris Chamatz, Clément Rodzielsky, Cécile Bart, Philippe Millot…

To counterbalance the Galerie Sud’s programme, l’Espace 315 is in the hands of Sophie Perez and Xavier Boussiron. They understand it as a space that can house miscellaneous shows, “a cross between a walkway, a lobby and a theatre hall” that breaks down the barriers between the various artistic areas. Among the participants: Philippe Katerine, Rita Gombrowicz, Marie-France, Charles Pennequin & Jean-François Pauvros…

The festival will be also based in the Centre Pompidou’s forum, with Olivier Bardin and Davide Balula’s special programme for the Café Mezzanine. In the foyer, an exceptional new show of dance-video through almost two hundred films, around Vincent Lamouroux’s Sol which unfolds beneath the visitor’s and invited choreographs’ feet. Finally, a set of shows in the Grande Salle completes this varied programme. Among the guests: Elmgreen & Dragset, Stars like fleas and In Famous Carousel…

Thanks to the support of the Centre des Monuments Nationaux, the festival also takes place beyond the Centre Pompidou, in the weapon hall of the Conciergerie, by inviting Christian Rizzo to present an exceptional collection of sixty artworks which show every facet of the human body as a counterpoint of the Centre Pompidou’s various shows and Live happenings. Artists are announced like Valérie Belin, Shary Boyle, Steven Gontarski, Berlinde de Bruyckere and Ai Weiwei…
