IC.ON.IC, festival of visual arts
The IC.ON.IC festival's contemporary art route and video mapping may have disappeared until next autumn, but the urban art route will keep on giving you a feast for the eyes!
Dedicated to the plurality and diversity of visual arts within our territory, the IC.ON.IC festival brings together some thirty contemporary artists across three routes:
- The urban art route in the Saint-Leu district will be unveiling new works in October and November, and will be on view throughout the year.
- The contemporary-art route in partner cultural structures between October and November.
- The projection-mapping route created by the association Les Rencontres Audiovisuelles in October.
Urban art route
Nestled in the Saint-Leu district, the route dedicated to urban art is enriched this year with 12 new works created by artists from a wide range of backgrounds, bearing witness to this movement's great wealth of techniques and aesthetics. These artists, each in their own style and with the street as their playground, surprise and amaze us as they offer up new ways of seeing the district and the city.
- Visible throughout the year, focus in October/November.

Poes & Jo Ber
L'épopée de Gilgamesh
A monumental work recreating the Mesopotamian epic of Gilgamesh. It is through a long friendship and years of working together in the public space that the two artist Poes & Jo Ber take on facades and walls as a duo.
A fresco created in partnership with CURB.

Contemporary art route
In 2023, the contemporary art route took the form of a programme of artists' residencies, with the aim of welcoming and supporting projects at every stage, from research to creation. The results of these stages of work will be the subject of a major exhibition in October/November 2023.
