Jubilee exhibition at Dunkirk

We opened an incredible museum in Dunkirk forty years ago. A white building that sculpts space and reflects light beautifully. “Like Long Echoes Joining from afar,” is the title of this exhibition celebrating 40 years of the Space for Art and Contemporary Action (LAAC). An exhibition for Gilbert Delaine, a collector who had no wealth at the time, but who had an idea and knew how to convince the city to shelter modern plastic creativity in the middle of the 20th century thanks to cultural patronage. . The exhibition shows a great variety of up-and-coming artists, including many from the region (Herbin, Dewasme, Pignon, Duchen). Arman, Nicois, Vasarely, Aixois, Arp, Strasburgois, even Miro Soulages, Poliakoff, Niki de Saint-Phalle… 13 young artists are invited to confront their art with the magnificent works of the collection.

A concert for a good cause at the Croix on Saturday

Gino Samyn, director and professor of the Conservatoire de Croix, accompanied by the group “In Live: 5 singers and 4 musicians” will appear on the stage at the night dedicated to the 80s. The purpose of this concert is to finance the project created there. 4 years ago by Gino Samyn, he created a music orchestra with the children of an orphanage in Mbour, Senegal. Every year he goes there with other musicians to give music lessons, and the rest of the time, the musicians of the presidential guard take over the lessons and concerts in the bush schools.

Therefore, to continue funding this solidarity project, this concert is being played on Saturday evening at the Croix. Reservations can be made at
