GIGANTISME — ART & INDUSTRIE

GIGANTISME — ART & INDUSTRIE merges a visionary outlook, a taste for aesthetic structures, and risk-taking for out-of-the-ordinary adventures. By its originality and excessiveness, GIGANTISME is sure to surprise. It moves mountains and occasionally stumbles, or bears the brunt of economic transformations, ecological transitions and their social consequences. The remaining stories, projects and diversely scaled productions testify to its creative and constructive folly. GIGANTISME is an outsized triennial, a spirited, future-looking festival of infinite forms…
