The Rencontres d'Arles gets a Revamp for its 46th Edition

Dedicated to innovation, the Rencontres d'Arles festival prepares, for this 46th edition, to pay tribute to one of its founding fathers Lucien Clergue, through the prism of a completely redesigned festival, and with The l’Occitane Foundation as patron.

Running from July 6 to September 20, 2015, the major international photography festival already looks rich in discoveries. Promoted with colorful pop posters during the Hebel years, the new director Sam Stourdzé prefers the aesthetics of a snapshot rotated at 180°, designed by ABM agency. This change in tone is indicative of a profound evolution, but that respects the legacy of its creators.

This shift in identity is also accompanied by the renunciation of the annual theme. "The Arles festival, which can be compared to Cannes or Avignon for cinema or theater, is so important that it does not need to focus on a single subject," says the former director of the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne.

Nonetheless, 3,500 works by 250 artists will be on show for the duration of this summer event, via a restricted selection of 35 exhibitions. Imbued with new life, the festival promises much, with as climax, the arrival of a brand new team, clearly eager to put the spotlight on the richness of such a precious heritage.
