Thematic cycles

La Criée regularly organizes its programming in the form of cycles. Covering one or more seasons, these cycles permeate the entire program: exhibitions, residencies, events, editions and mediation projects.
These thematic cycles make it possible to explore artistic and/or social issues over a long period of time, and to diversify approaches. They give coherence and identity to all the actions of the art center.
