In 2017, let Maintenant carry you in a world of artistic innovations between smiles, spheres and air bubbles! Creations, conferences, concerts, exhibitions, performances and workshops: a journey dedicated to curious publics, a new urban course made of intimate meetings and gigantic installations.
Exhibitions & installations
Maintenant will settle in 17 different places of Rennes and its suburbs. Drawing with a monumental bubble air, building an open-source sewing machine, entering an inflatable pavilion, contemplating the delicate choreography of pendulums, listening to the symphony of crystal-clear percussions or glass fragments, cuddling a fantastic creature… Here are few adventures you will get into from 10th to 15th October!
