Kimsooja in Poitiers: Incredibly-contemporary “Traversées”

From 12 October 2019 to 19 January 2020, art invites for a rendezvous in Poitiers for the Traversées/Kimsooja event.

Kimsooja is a key international contemporary art figure. The mission bestowed on this 61 year-old South Korean is to reveal Poitiers in another way to showcase its richness and its secrets.
Thirty-odd works are presented and scattered around Poitiers from its historic centre, its Palace of Justice, now open to the public, and its 20 emblematic sites. An artistic trail open to the world thanks to this artist with her ever-so deft touch. The subject selected focuses on the theme of borders, movement and exile. A new era for Poitiers and its Palace.
On the agenda, guided tours are organized:

  • Around the Palace of Justice
  • Around the Cathedral
  • Around the Musée Sainte-Croix
    And, every Sunday, a tour in English of the Palace of Justice and the Traversées/Kimsooja works displayed there.

Opening times: from Tuesday to Sunday from 11am to 6pm

Traversées weekend from Paris from €150/person (return trip in TGV high-speed train, 1 night with breakfast in a 4 hotel and guided tour of the exhibition).
*based on 2 adults sharing a room.
