This cutting edge festival features the work of around 60 bold young creatives, with a particular focus on digital art.
The ‘Jeune Création’ showcase of up-and-coming young artists was founded in 1949 by sculptor Paul Rebeyrolle and is now in its 66th edition. This year, the avant-garde Galerie Thoddaeus Ropac in Pantin hosts the event for the very first time, bringing together 60 or so bold young creatives for a varied programme of exhibits and live performances.
The festival’s 2016 focus is on digital art, highlighting works as diverse as Lou Masduraud’s mesmerising sound installations, Alix Desaubliaux’s ‘virtual dreams’ and the comic-inspired pieces of Louis Granet. In many cases, cutting-edge video and internet-based technologies are integrated deftly and innovatively into the artworks, making this exhibition one of the best places to spot the big avant-garde names of tomorrow.
