La Grande Lessive ®

Aix en Provence - Exhibition - Dates and program to be confirmed - Free

Après le succès rencontré en 2017 dans le cadre de la manifestation "C'est Sud", cette année, la Ville d'Aix-en-Provence reconduit "La Grande Lessive", en partenariat avec le tissu associatif et institutionnel aixois, le jeudi 29 mars sur une multitude de "lieux d'étendage".

En reprenant le principe des "grandes lessives" d'autrefois qui réunissaient les habitants d'un même lieu, la plasticienne Joëlle Gonthier a créé, en 2006, une installation artistique éphémère qu'elle a intitulée "La Grande Lessive".
Elle en a fait la plus importante manifestation d'art participatif au monde : à ce jour, "La Grande Lessive" a rassemblé 10 millions de participants dans plus de 100 pays sur les cinq continents !

De quoi s'agit-il ? Ce jour-là, chaque participant est invité à réaliser un travail artistique sur un support en format A4 (dessin, peinture, image numérique, collage, photo...) sur le thème donné, et à l'accrocher à des fils tendus, à l'aide de pinces à linge en bois. Pour contribuer à cette action, nul n'est besoin d'être spécialiste. Seul importe le désir de partager une même invitation, le même jour.

Le thème proposé cette année est "Pierres à images et pierres à imaginer".

Les lieux d'étendage seront situés dans toute la ville :
→ Fondation Vasarely
→ Centre social le Château de l'Horloge
→ Beisson (belvédère)
→ EPHAD Bastide du Figuier
→ Place Maurel – Saint-Eutrope
→ Bibliothèque éducative Paul Cézanne – Saint-Eutrope
→ Parc de la maison de quartier la Mareschale
→ Parc de la Bastide du Jas de Bouffan
→ Direction Jeunesse (bd Aristide-Briand)
→ Parvis de la mairie annexe de Luynes
→ Parvis de la mairie annexe de Puyricard
→ Centre social et culturel Jean-Paul-Coste et square accolé
→ Ecoles primaires de la Ville

Les partenaires de "La Grande Lessive" sont :

  • Les écoles de la Ville
  • Les centres sociaux : Aix Nord, Marie-Louise-Davin, Albert-Camus, Château de l'Horloge, Maison de quartier la Mareschale, Jean-Paul-Coste, La Provence, Les Amandiers
  • Les associations : Bibliothèque éducative Paul-Cézanne, Relais des Possibles, Ze Bus, Laverie Solidaire, CAP Pont de Béraud, Archipel, Planet'Jeunes, Voyons voir
