These original meetings led to technical proposals being presented in about thirty municipalities, communes, agglomerations and cultural association venues in Essonne. Reception areas may not be specifically designated for exhibitions (media libraries, high schools, nurseries, etc.).

Specific area, diverse audience, innovative approach

Territory establishing several universities and research centers, Essonne concentrates nearly 15% of French research.

Since its inception, CC91 has wanted to advance its vision of culture through affordable, high-quality art projects. Naturally, “La Science de l’Art” arose, a contemporary art biennale that shares the spotlight with science. With each edition, new partners join the project allowing the festival to expand to the department and also to Ile-de-France.

In order to reach a wide audience and provide them with reading keys for a better understanding of the project, each work will be accompanied by mediation procedures: conferences, discussions, literary breakfasts and lunches, activities around the youth audience, meetings, workshops… These actions allow the Biennale to remain accessible to all while maintaining the quality of art contemporary.

The call for projects was launched over a year before the event in order to allow artist(s) and scholar(s) to collaborate at every stage of the creative process.

CC91, thanks to the arts and sciences pole, takes care of putting you in touch with a scientist whose field of research is as closely aligned as possible with the approach taken.
