From 6-16 October 2011, the second EVENTO festival will underscore Bordeaux’s liking of daring cultural adventures, by way of the carte blanche offered to Michelangelo Pistoletto and his foundation Cittadellarte. As an original, surprising and festive contemporary art event, EVENTO’s brief is to help reinvent Bordeaux in an ongoing way, just as Bordeaux strives to rethink EVENTO anew each time.
These distinctive features, which made EVENTO 2009 so successful and attracted more than 390,000 visitors, will be carried on this year by a new creative team, impatient to take up this artistic and urban challenge.
