|The fourth edition of Infr'Action - Festival International d'Art Performance will take place in Sète from September 17 to 22. We continue actively to do our best to establish a scene for performance art in France. A place where art lovers can go to discover major international artists as well as emerging new talent. It is also an event where you can go and have a nice time, in the splendid milieu of the Mediterranean city of Sète. Infr'Action also takes on the issue of cultural democracy, trying to find new ways to facilitate peoples access to contemporary art. Infr'Action is keen to answer to questions concerning gender and multiculturalism. Each year the festival invites a country of honour, like Finland (2006), the United Kingdom (2007). This year the honour has come to Canada. No need to ask why.The Canadian scene of performance art is very strong, with a new generation of emerging artists, beside having a strong tradition.The fourth edition of Infr'Action sees its first co-curator in the person of Sylvette Babin, Canadian artist and director of the Montréal based contemporary art magazine esse - arts + opinions.
This years theme focus on the theoretical and practical notion that « everybody is an artist ».
