Jérôme Sans - Polygone Riviera

Polygone Riviera
Cagnes-sur-mer, France

Urban development Artistic Director

Jérôme Sans has been invited as Artistic Director for Polygone Riviera to imagine the contemporary art programme. The works of eleven french and international artists (Ben, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, Daniel Buren, César, Antony Gormley, Noble & Webster, Jean-Michel Othoniel, Pablo Reinoso, Pascale Marthine Tayou, Wang Du) have been selected to be on permanent display at Polygone Riviera to rethink the way we experience our immediate surroundings. Their presence at Polygone Riviera helps to make these new public facilities part of a broader social and cultural dynamic.
Echoing this ambitious set of permanent artworks, a programme of temporary exhibitions, changing every year, begins as part of a dynamic partnership with local cultural institutions and stakeholders. Thus, after a second chapter presenting an exception set of sculptures by Joan Miro, organized thanks to a partnership with the Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, the third chapter featured an exhibition of temporary works by a major French contemporary artist, Philippe Ramette. The 2018 edition was a temporary exhibition by the French artist Lilian Bourgeat, and then, in 2019, Pablo Reinoso.
