Art dans la Cité supports services and healthcare establishments (hospital or medico-social center) which wish to bring beauty, emotion, poetry, new aesthetic and sensory experiences, which wish to develop or transform a space, make it more pleasant, more cheerful, comforting.
A commissioned work in situ is a work created by an artist and intended for a specific space in the establishment. It can be one or more paintings, a fresco, an installation, a sculpture, a video work, a photographic series, a digital work (immersive, contemplative, interactive etc.).
It is installed in a courtyard or garden, in a corridor, a reception area, a waiting or relaxation room, a treatment room… Whether on the wall, on the floor or on the ceiling. It can be co-created with patients and/or caregivers.
These innovative and sustainable works of art aim to improve spaces, put the patient at the heart of the healthcare system, and contribute to the well-being of everyone within the establishment (patients, professionals, relatives, etc.) . Art dans la Cité works with emerging or internationally recognized artists.
Twenty years after its creation, with an international career and more than 100 creations to its credit, Art dans la Cité is positioned as the reference for the creation of innovative works of art designed specifically for hospitals.
