From July 4 to September 25, 2022 Arlès returns to be the capital of photography with the new edition of the Rencontres, the annual photography festival founded in 1970 by Arlesian photographer Lucien Clergue, writer Michel Tournier, and historian Jean-Maurice Rouquette. For over 50 years, photography’s biggest names have participated in the Rencontres d’Arles, a veritable breeding ground for new talent. The 2022 program includes 40 different exhibitions, to which are added those offered in the Grand Arles Express, showcasing works by curators and artists hailing from different backgrounds.
Often produced in collaboration with French and international museums and institutions, the exhibitions are shown at different sites throughout the city: heritage sites such as 12th century chapels and cloisters, 19th century industrial buildings, and modern and surprising sites, such as the Monoprix and its façade, classed as 20th century heritage.
In addition to exhibitions, evenings are enlivened by projections, concerts, and other performances at the city’s Théâtre Antique. The infamous Night of the Year, the festival’s unmissable event, is an occasion to attend debates, book signings, meetings with artists and party all night.
