Art is everywhere in la Défense! Huge open-air space, La Défense provides 69 artworks to enjoy, including César’s Le Pouce, Bernar Venet’s Doubles Lignes Indéterminées, Talkis’ Bassin, Joan Miro’s Personnages Fantastiques, Alexander Calder’s Araignée Rouge. And for three summers now, art comes with Les Extatiques, an open-air exhibition displayed on the esplanade.
According to Paris La Défense director general Marie-Célie Guillaume, “today, more than ever, we need air, we need art. Despite the many difficulties because of the health crisis, we wanted to sustain the 3rd edition of Les Extatiques, bolder than before since it takes over the place up to the heart of the Vallée de la Culture dear to Patrick Devedjian (former Hauts-de-Seine President who passed in March 2020). This edition is an invitation to go out and take care of our souls”.
On the menu, about twenty huge works of art by artists contacted by Beaux Arts magazine editor in chief and curator of the exhibition Fabrice Bousteau. The first names out are: Carlos Cruz-Diez, Matteo Nasini, Elsa Sahal, Fabrice Hyber, Julie C. Fortier, and Ivan Argote.
Discover works while you enjoy an urban walk.
