Contemporary art calendar – Autumn 20 – Winter 21

Finally, after a last aborted edition, here is the new issue of the calendar of exhibitions and artistic programmes of a.c.b. members for the period autumn 2020 – winter 2021.
In spite of a period of unprecedented crisis, the region’s art venues have quickly adapted to offer you the best conditions for welcoming and discovering works of art, while respecting health standards.

In its paper or digital version, we hope that this diary will guide you as best as possible during your artistic wanderings in Brittany.

This diary can be found free of charge at all a.c.b. members’ places as well as at cultural and tourist sites throughout the region. If necessary, do not hesitate to ask us for it.


State of play of the health crisis of Covid-19 for the plastic arts sector in Brittany

Inventory of the Covid-19 crisis for the plastic arts sector in Brittany realized by a.c.b

In April 2020, a.c.b. carried out a first inventory of the impacts of the current health crisis based on the data from the a.c.b. and CIPAC questionnaires that the member structures of the network filled in. We were also able to draw up some observations for artists-authors and freelancers in the region.

This diagnosis allows us to understand the first major trends and consequences related to this crisis, in order to initiate a collective reflection on the means to be implemented to support our already fragile ecosystem in the short and medium term.
