By bringing together artists from different racial, cultural, geographic and social back-grounds in an exhibition linking art and social transformation, GLOBALECTICS: Art for Change participates to current transformations and usages of the city, the intermin-gling of populations, the arrival of new inhabitants, the development of technologies and discussions about more fecund spatial categories and scales for thinking and devel-oping territories.
What are the ingredients of these territories (cities) in “becoming”? What are the models used by different spatial planners to equip these with an identity and a dynamism? This international exhibition sees the city in a definition that leads to a complex of compo-nents that must be highlighted in light of different forms of utopia, territorial models and theories on the urban (city-nature, creative city)
GLOBALECTICS: Art for Change argues that art and culture must be mobilized for transformation of the urban landscape through a materialization of the territory and the living together. In this context, the artists are better equipped for a redefinition and revi-talization of the city in the diversity of its space.
