Marked by the incredible success of the 2015 edition at the CENQUATRE-PARIS with more than 47 000 visitors, the Circulation(s) festival is coming back for three months as a central exhibition of the CENTQUATRE-PARIS. Dedicated to young european photography, the Circulation(s) festival o ers for the sixth consecutive year a crossed perspective of Europe through photography. Its aim is to help the talents of young european photographs become visible and to allow their contemporary and artistic creations to be discovered. The program is articulated around a selection from a jury out of an international call for applications, of guests (an art galery and an art school) and a carte blanche of this edition’s sponsor, agnès b. The exhibition, having succeeded to assemble 51 european photo- graphers, has decided to open this success once again to Little Circulation(s), a children’s exhibition, with a program and activities for a young audience.

As a space of creation and programmation, of experiences and innovations, vibrating to the rythm of the contemporary world, the CENTQUATRE-PARIS, settled in the old parisian funerary house, is sup- posed to be a particularly welcoming place of life for artists and the public. Open to today’s exciting artistic and cultural practises and of spontaneous expressions, the establishment welcomes all these proposals in a vast building made of six public spaces, research studios and representation spaces. For the sixth edition of the Circulation(s) festival, the CENTQUATRE-PARIS remains Circula- tion(s) priviledged partner, hosting for the third time the exhibition within its walls. Circulation(s) takes up all of the southern part of CENTQUATRE-PARIS. The Château d’eau (entrance from the Curial street), the Aubervilliers hall, the Curial nave and the ateliers o er varied scenographic proposals (instalations, projections, exhibitions...). Go and visit the children’s exhibition like last year in the CENTQUATRE-PARIS Écuries (-1 oor).

LE FONDS DE DOTATION agnès b.
From her débuts, stylist agnès b. has proposed an artistic universe and a vision of the world where solidarity is a thought-through and sincere engagement. Convinced that the future is in sharing, agnès b. has for a long time given her support to numerous humanitarian and cultural projects. The agnès b. fund was created in 2009 to set up and devellop this philanthropy. The fund’s work concen- trates itself on two axes:
Art, culture and creation: Through the galerie du jour in Paris, the fund is at the origin of many exhibi- tions. More than 20 artists, 15 festivals and cultural centers are also supported every year. The agnès b. foundation nancially participated in various cultural projects, helping young talents as much as con rmed artists, bringing its support to new places of exhibit in France as well as abroad. The fund is also in charge of preserving and presenting to the public agnès b.’s personnal art collection. Solidarity and environnement: the fund is involved in more than thirty social and environmental projects led by local or international organizations to help the most vulnerable populations. Access to health, food and drinkable water are their most important priority. This e ort for a better sharing of world ressources is accomplished though TARA-Expeditions and its oceans research program.

“AQUELLOS QUE ESPERAN – THOSE WHO AWAIT”
The photographers Borja Larrondo and Diego Sanchez are residents invited for the 2016 edition of the festival. They will present a new project resulting of their three month residency at the CENTQUATRE-PA- RIS. Their objective is to expand their original multi format project “Aquellos que esperan – those who await”, completed in Spain in the Orcasur district of Madrid, along with a new corpus of work develloped in La Courneuve. This new creation will be nurtured by the comparison of the two disticts, with the fundamental postulate that “a group of measures applied at a large scale produces identical results or similar ones in di erent societies.”
