The Environment Invites itself to the White Night with Thanks for Nothing

Michelangelo Pistoletto
Paris
5 October, 2019

For this 18th edition of the Nuit Blanche in Paris, Thanks for Nothing invites to the City of Science and Industry a major figure of contemporary art: the Italian Michelangelo Pistoletto , famous for its founding inscription in the movement arte povera from the 60's as well as for his participative works. On the evening of October 5, the artist will perform two more of his performances that will engage visitors: the first,  Sculpture Walk , will invite the public to roll in space a sphere made of compressed newspapers, while Third Paradise will encourage them to form a human chain outdoors, as a collaborative and symbolic drive for solidarity. The ecological stake of the latter is explicit: for each participant in the performance, a tree will be planted. 500 people are invited to participate in the event, which can be registered now by clicking on this link
