    For the second edition of the European Days of Arts and Crafts, the National Institute of Arts and Crafts trusted ateliergh to design and stage the event, which took place in the Palais de Tokyo, the beating heart of contemporary art in Paris.
    A simple and plastic metaphor of craftsmen’s workshops.

    Further than an exhibition, ‘Arts and Crafts on Stage’ is an invitation to take part in an original emotional experience. Guided by a contemporary and poetic light setup, visitors will step straight into the universe of a dozen workshops: typographer, bookbinder, blacksmith, ceramist, goldsmith, engraver… Through sounds and images, still or moving, visitors will feel the magic of the binding link between craftsmen and material. Materials give the pace to craftsmen’s time, so special in its creativity.
    In the heart of the exhibition lies a place called Symposium, dedicated to meetings, debates and exchanges. Thought out as a welcoming place of exchanges, Symposium entirely trusts hosted craftsmen to define their relationship to the audience. As workshops, roundtables or presentations, programing is free and guided by the desires of those who want to take part.
    With that exhibition, the aim of the National Institute of Arts and Crafts is to provide the public with a new vision of art craftsmanship.
    The Palais de Tokyo is a unique place. Built for the 1937 International Exhibition, it has become one of the best-known European sites for contemporary creation, under multiple forms.
