“Cities of paper” exhibition: artists’ books at the Mediatheque downtown

The “Cities of Paper” exhibition aims to show that it is also through literature, art and architecture that the city is most questioned, worked on, even imagined. Meetings and conferences will come to support the subject and draw the city of yesterday, today and tomorrow, through historical and philosophical approaches in the cycle “The city and urbanity”, and under the artistic angle in the cycle “The city and its representations in Western art”.

Around the exhibition gravitate several highlights for the youngest with creative workshops and shows. First artist to intervene in the cycle, Camille Renault will make the children travel in her work and will invite them to stage the city and its lights.


Finally, throughout the period, events, workshops, shows, conferences, concerts, participatory installation, will allow the public to dream of the city and (re)discover Isséenne urbanity. See the full program at
