GARE DU NORD

Sans titre-2

Before it goes to Ivory Coast, where it will be shown during the first quarter of 2016, the exhibition stoped at the Paris-Nord train station, during the Conference on Climate Change from November 27 2015 to February 3 2016 : a decisive rendez-vous, chosen by SNCF Gares & Connexions and Eurostar to show fourteen works of art that express both the vitality of contemporary African art and the significance of the issues facing the world.

 

This operation is part of a global project that marks the involvement of the SNCF Group in combating climate change and supporting COP 21.

To celebrate COP21 and spread awareness throughout Paris, but also across other regions of France and Europe, SNCF Gares & Connexions – the SNCF division that manages and develops the French rail network’s –  has developed several artistic projects, in close collaboration with artists and cultural institutions: at Le Bourget and Paris-Nord train stations, two points of entry for the Conference, Liam Gillick, Richard Texier, Société Réaliste and Leandro Erlich all express in their own way the importance of the summit and their view on climate change ; at Paris-Montparnasse, Paris-Est and Saint-Lazare, exhibitions and encounters speak of universality and commitment ; and in Strasbourg, a 1000 m2 photography on the railway station’s façade, calls on our emotions and sense of wonder.
