About

The theme of the 2012 Printemps is History. Curated by art historian and critic Paul Ardenne, History is mine ! brings together some forty artists who, each in their own way, address the question of history today. But then how could it be otherwise, given that all of us, artists or otherwise, are shapped and moved by history ? Not a universal history, but a singular one, revisited and rewritten by each individual as the key material of their of their "life-novel."

 

Printemps 2012 will be articulated around its usual venues (with the exception of Les Jacobins, currently being renovated) with a string of associate venues further along the Garonne chosen in order to diversify content and maintain close cooperation with local and regional players. Likewise, there will be a special emphasis on interventions in public space, which is eminently the space of sharing and conviviality. This festive impulse will be heighted by the Nomadic Nights, especially this year. The International Festival of Art Schools, inaugurated in 2011, will be housed this year at the Ecole des beaux-arts.

 

This will be the last edition to take placein the autumn. In 2013, Le Printemps will be held in may, thus going back to the time of year, spring, that inspired the name it has kept over its 23 years of activiy.
