Toulouse: Bleu Bleu @ ‘Printemps de Septembre’ Festival

Bleu Bleu - Printemps de Septembre

We continue our coverage on the Printemps de Septembre Festival in Toulouse  with the Bleu Bleu Project (named after a mythical bar in Toulouse attended by the young art scene), a multifaceted project curated by Manuel Pomar.

Originating from a scenario and the eponymous play by Stephane Arcas, the Bleu Bleu exhibition borrows the play’s decor and some of its texts. The Lieu Commun space has been transformed into a decrepit student apartment whith emblematic artworks from the 90’s borrowed from regional collections of contemporary art (FRAC). Historical pieces are exhibited together with other works carried out by a selection of graduates artists of the Toulouse Fine Art School (isdaT) and EBABX. In parallel visitors can enjoy live performances of members of the collective 330 + 1 who reenact certain parts of the play. A report on the youth and the upheavals of the world.

Toulouse: David Shrigley @ ‘Printemps de Septembre’ Festival

David Shrigley - Problem in Toulouse

The Printemps de Septembre (Spring in September) returns this year after a three year hiatus to Toulouse in Southern France. The festival, which was recently redefined as a Biennal by founder Marie-Thérèse Perrin, takes place throughout the city with a programme of exhibitions, concerts, screenings and performances.

Fresh from his recent inauguration of the ‘Really Good’ sculpture on the 4th Plinth in Trafalgar Square in London, British artist and Turner Prize nominee David Shrigley has designed and manufactured all the elements to organise a music festival in partnership with the Higher Institute of Arts in Toulouse: the instruments, stage setting and rehearsal studio, posters and even the lyrics of songs, where bands can register and play.
The installation is called ‘ David Shrigley – Problem in Toulouse’.

The display is featured in the Palais des Arts school , as well as a series of David Shrigley’s distinctive black and white quick-witted drawings and hand-rendered texts with satirical comments on everyday situations.
