from October 2010 to June 2011
Correspondances is a project of awareness and initiation to contemporary art, aimed at young audiences, built from the artistic programming of La Criée. In 2010-2011, cultural twinnings took place in partnership with two schools in Rennes, two colleges in the department of Ille-et-Vilaine, a high school and an association that supports young people in the process of reintegration.
Correspondances aims to develop the participants’ sensitive experience, awakening their imagination, curiosity and creativity. In dialogue with the teachers, the projects proposes to the young visitors to make the connection between the discovery of the works, the process of an artist, the artistic practice and different fields of learning.
Throughout the season, the groups explored the theme of “Impressions”, from the discovery of the art center, exhibition visits, workshops at La Criée, followed by research time and experimentation in partner institutions.
Correspondances, it is also a multimedia edition, realized by the graphic artist Marion Kueny in complicity with the young spectators. This edition includes the design of a blog documenting ongoing processes and a booklet presenting some excerpts from the productions.
