11/10/2019 - 19/01/2020

Located in the historic heart of Orléans, this converted twelfth-century church and salt warehouse is one of the key sites of the Biennale. The space hosts the world’s first monographic exhibition devoted to the 2019 Biennale’s guest of honor, the Brazilian group Arquitetura Nova (Des rêves vus de près) [Dreams seen up close]. The site is surrounded by an ensemble of installations from artists and architects, all of which grapple with ideas of resistance in the face of political, economic and social powers, and the hope of inhabiting the world differently.
