In PAR51 (2014) we ran a piece about public art in Nantes, a French city that devotes 15-20% of its budget to public art—with big returns. For the next series of posts, enjoy these photos and selections from the story. For more dynamic content and back issues, visit our website. . . . . . . . . . . . (4/8) Daniel Buren and Patrick Bouchain’s Les Anneaux (The Rings) is a series of 18 huge colored circles at the edge of the water that light up at night. . . . . . . All of this art-making got going in 1989 when the newly elected Ayrault forged a close working relationship with Jean Blaise, a producer-director of artistic and cultural events. The pair worked with Jean-Luc Courcoult, whose company Royal de Luxe created vibrant street theater with enormous puppets. Other performance events enlivened the city too, even as Blaise and company began to turn their attention toward public art. In 2000, the Île de Nantes shipyards were retooled into art spaces, an urban renewal project that was unprecedented in France and garnered Europe-wide publicity. Blaise opened Le Lieu Unique, a contemporary art center and nightclub, on the island. In 2007 came the first of three public art festivals under the umbrella title Estuaire (Estuary) for which permanent pieces were commissioned and temporary ones sought too. . . . . . . . . . . .

[JEUX OLYMPIQUES] Les JO d'hiver 2018 seront célébrés à partir d'aujourd'hui et jusqu'au 25 février à Pyeongchang, en Corée du Sud ! ➖ “Les Anneaux“ sont une œuvre pérenne de Daniel Buren et Patrick Bouchain créée pour la première édition du festival d’art contemporain “Estuaire“ en 2007. Prenant place à la pointe de l’île de Nantes, la série des 18 anneaux s’auréole la nuit d’une alternance de rouge, vert et bleu, et souligne alors la double perspective du paysage : d’un côté, les quais et entrepôts, de l’autre, l’estuaire de la Loire. © Daniel Buren et Patrick Bouchain. @olympic #DanielBuren #PatrickBouchain #LesAnneaux #JO #hiver #olympicgames #cerceau #circle #light #red #green #blue #Loire #France #artcontemporain #artspace #contemporaryart #installation #art #artwork #artlovers #artgram #instaart #instaartist #artist #exposition #exhibition #inspiration #poetic
