Les Portes Ouvertes des Ateliers d'Artistes de Belleville

May 15, 2009 through May 18, 2009

Rub7_hc2009_AAB_1__jpg 250 artists will be participating at this annual event, presenting work in over 130 sites and studios in and around Belleville in the 20th arrondissement.

The Ateliers d'Artistes de Belleville president, Nicolas Dupeyron states:

The success and appeal of the Belleville open studios is due, in my view, to its authenticity; authenticity in the work of the artists, in their engagement in public life, authenticity in their contact with the public.

The art that the artists propose is all but flashy or artificial. It is not made to evaporate in the curls and wreathes of our communication society. This is one reason why we consider it as real art, art in its solid state.

This year's theme revolves around "skin"; By crossing the artistic dimension with the political and ethical issues related to skin (skin grafts, scientific progress, biometrics, racism), artists have surprising ways of triggering reflection on these questions that are part of Belleville’s past and present.
