Art in the Chapels

Pays de Pontivy - early July to mid-September 2024

A completely unique experience: each summer, contemporary art and religious art come together with thought-provoking results.

Faith in contemporary art

You might think that only water flows through Pontivy. But central Brittany is overflowing with art and culture too, including one cultural initiative that is of particular note. Each summer, contemporary art takes possession of some twenty or so chapels dotted around the Blavet valley. These gems of Brittany’s rich heritage, well tucked away in the midst of the Breton countryside, offer visual artists the opportunity to create some very original site-specific work to exhibit in these chapels, most of which date back to the 15th and 16th centuries. The perfect day out for anyone looking for something a bit different, taking for its theme the mystery of artistic creativity.
