An exceptional journey among the vineyards
Initiated by the founder of Art Fair // Dijon, Jean-Marc Bassand, “Art In Situ, sur la route des grands crus” aims to give a unique vision of the wine heritage in our region by associating it with works of contemporary art installed in different estates. This artistic path aspires to sublimate the regional territory by associating contemporary art with different wine estates of Bourgogne. It thus makes it possible to discover the historical, environmental and wine-growing heritage in an innovative and contemporary aspect, thus creating a bridge between artists and estates. From renowned art galleries, foundations or artist residences, these works bring a new perspective on the richness of our territory.
WHY A DUO BETWEEN DOMAINS / GALLERIES
by Raphaël Charpentié, Artistic Director of Art Fair // Dijon
"Art In Situ - Sur la route des grands crus" was conceived as a sensual alternative to the excess of screens and virtualization. It is a matter of cultivating the fertile ground of the obvious harmony between art and wine, of re-enchanting our gaze on the terroir, while establishing long-term cooperation between galleries, estates and spectators.
At the intersection of the sensitive intuitions of the galleries and the complex and delicate work of the Bourgogne estates, the goal is to create a place where people, art and wine meet.
A LONG-TERM JOURNEY
Around two annual highlights and in particular at the time of Art Fair // Dijon, galleries and estates will be invited to intensify their cooperation, offering visitors and collectors: visits, meetings and tastings.
