1st International Festival of Contempory Mosaic in France – 2015

From 1st to 16th of August 2015, the association “L’Art en Enclats” organized the 1st International Festival of Contempory Mosaic in France. The event took place at the Burgundy region, in the Chapel de Corbelin (La Chapelle-Saint-André), in Haut-Nivernais.

The objective of this Festival was to create a place, where mosaic artists would meet and share experiences, exchange their “little tips” and help the visitors discover the world of Modern Mosaic which is still quite unknown.
The Festival hosted 54 exhibiting artists, representing 10 nationalities, and about 80 mosaics and 40 sculptures, but also held conferences, workshops and the realization of a collective mosaic on the spot, by the participating artists.
