Traversées is a new artistic and cultural event inspired by the future destiny of the Palace of the Dukes of Aquitaine and its quarter, at the heart of Poitiers’ history and heritage. The first edition will take place from October 12, 2019 – January 19, 2020.

The artistic directors of this first edition, Emma Lavigne and Emmanuelle de Montgazon give ‘carte blanche’ to the South Korean artist Kimsooja.

Kimsooja’s project, which resonates with other artists, those who have inspired her and those with whom she has chosen to build close ties, from all backgrounds and of all ages, will traverse the city like a web of criss-crossing, converging and diverging paths.

This ‘carte blanche’ will be accompanied by a programme featuring special events designed to bring people together in the public space.
