Overige informatie

ART’FAB is the very first exhibition of the new “Cultural Summer” of Saint-Tropez and the theme is “Women of Europe”. Three subjects, linked to European artistic creation in the 21st century, are illustrated in four completely different parts of the town.

The symbolic building dominating Saint-Tropez, the Citadel and the Annonciade Museum, are ideal places to exhibit sculptures and works of European men and women, suggesting fragility, transparency, desire, protection, grace and pleasure.

The 17th century Vasserot washhouse, where linen was washed daily for many centuries, inspired Yves Sabourin for the exhibition of women artists who use ancient embroidery techniques on modern material in order to create contemporary forms as modern works of art.
The “Salle Jean Despas” will exclusively house works from 21st century women artists: videos, sculptures, paintings works on paper and photographs.

Twenty-five European artistic scenes will be explored, and will allow us to discover a panorama of artistic creativity in Europe today. Artists from different cultural backgrounds encounter and confront each other in the same exhibition creating comparisons between the idea of a common way of life, cohabitation and communication at the heart of the European
Union. This event is the occasion to bring together contemporary artists of European art.

Why does ART’FAB give priority to women artists?
Without intending to put feminine creation in competition with masculine creation, the jury wishes to devote this exhibition entirely to women artists.
The jury chose to take a particular interest in members of the European Union, in order to show great samples of contemporary artists at the heart of a common land, Europe.
The exclusivity of women artists was not intended as a sign of feminism or equality but stems from a desire to create an opportunity for women to take a stronger place in the art world, which hitherto has mainly been occupied by men. Is not feminine creation as universal as masculine creation?
