The annual Les Urbaines (‘The Urban’) festival is on at Lausanne’s Espace Arlaud as well as various other locations, running December 1 to 4.
The 20th edition with be host to over forty performances, shows, installations and concerts throughout the weekend. Elise Lammer will be curating this year’s contemporary art section, titled Meaning Can only Grow out of Intimacy (limbs, water, nostalgia) and features work by Lars TCF Holdhus &Martin Kohout, Hannah Weinberger, Brigham BakerandKris Lemsaluamong others. The works are not connected by a theme, but each artist was invited to “produce a new project and invest one room freely.”
