Entre le 17 mai et le 14 juillet aura donc cet évènement énorme à Aubervilliers. Une cinquantaine d’artiste français et internationaux ont été invité par Olivier Landes et l’association « L’art en ville » pour oeuvrer sur les 2 hectares d’un site d’une ancienne casse auto du Fort d’Aubervilliers… Palissades, carcasse de camionnettes ou de voitures, bâtiments, alcôves auront été leur terrain de jeux depuis quelques semaines.
