ART FOR CHANGE
Artists are inspiring changemakers, they have the ability to translate emotions and spread the beauty and the urge for change, better than anyone. Every year, ChangeNOW invites up-and-coming international artists to exhibit at the summit, accelerate the transition in the arts and provide a new medium for positive change.
“Time has come to light the stars again”, “the constellations” and “the inner stars”.
Here is, in a few words, the vision of the poet Guillaume Apollinaire, while in the trenches in 1916.
In 2021, ChangeNOW pays tribute to the evocative power of stars and to the innovative power of humankind through 30+ works of art. A sensorial, ecological, circular art that sublimates stardust and infuses it with emotion.
An ambitious Cultural and Artistic Program
Zdey, Célestine Peuchot, Walter & Zoniel, Caroline Desnoëttes, Luke Jerram, Laurent Tixador, …
Participatory Street Art, Photography, Immersive installations, Land Art, Sculptures (3D printed and made of recycled materials)…
Within the Grand Palais Ephémère
& hors les murs
The Exhibition is open to ChangeNOW’s participants, Parisians and tourists
The auction will present a selection of 30 lots from a dozen contemporary artists who create within an eco-design or eco-conscious framework.
In the continuity of arte povera or slow art, these artists offer a new outlook on human/non-human relationships, by their medium or their practice.
These French and international artists-sourcerers carefully chose their medium from outside the recycling loop to reintegrate them in a wide creative cycle (animal, flora, plastic waste, discarded objects, etc…) : Jesu Moratiel, Laurent Tixador, Rachel Marks, Johé Bruneau, Caroline Desnoëttes, Jordane Saget…
The art exhibition “Time has come to light the stars again” and the auction are sustainable and circular in a number of ways, from its production to the messages it carries.
Eco-design: The artworks, exhibition design and signage use sustainably sourced materials
Eco-Production: A craddle-to-craddle waste management policy is in place. We are also reducing shipping and transport footprint all along the exhibition life-cycle.
Partners Network: Various institutions help us build a circular exhibition, from sourcing mediums to managing the exhibition outputs (sold, showcased again or upcycled).
Education: The topics at stake in the exhibition are an open conversation with all our stakeholders, from our suppliers, to our patrons and partners, to the public though inspiring guided visits and workshops.
