Normandy Impressionist Festival

For the Normandy Impressionist Festival, many events will be organized throughout the Normandy region to appeal to young and old alike. Due to the health crisis, the opening has been postponed: the Festival will take place from July 4 to November 15, 2020.

A multi-disciplinary festival, the Normandy Impressionist presents Impressionism in all its forms, and is also committed to putting contemporary work in the spotlight. Like an artistic bridge linking the past with the present, it invites visitors on an artistic journey from the 19th century to today.

Dates of edition 2020

Initially scheduled from April 3 to September 6, the Normandy Impressionist 2020 event is back on track and will take place from July 4 to November 15, 2020.

The festival will take place "over the summer and autumn of 2020, with a gradual opening on 4 July of a large number of Impressionist exhibitions, contemporary art and photography", announced the festival organizers. The programming will be reinforced at the beginning of the school year and throughout the fall with a second component of exhibitions, shows and artistic and cultural education projects. In this way, almost all projects can be presented with respect for the protection of the health of artists, both personal and public. However, any big gathering is cancelled for now, they say.

Stay tuned: the new programming calendar will be unveiled in detail soon!

A cultural and festive atmosphere in Normandy

For its fourth edition, Normandie Impressionniste will reinvent itself according to a new formula imagined by its general commissioner, Philippe Piguet.

The Normandy Impressionnist Festival endeavors to revisit this movement and to illustrate that it was inseparable from the societal upheavals of its time, while being very contemporary. The program includes twenty Impressionist exhibitions, thirty exhibitions of contemporary art and photography, as well as multiple multidisciplinary proposals.

Like all the innovations known during the Impressionist period, Normandy Impressionnist takes into account all forms of artistic creations. From painting to music, to dance, photography, cinema, sounds and lights, there will be something for everyone!

The Normandy Impressionist Festival is an opportunity to explore the region in a new light. It is also the perfect chance to live the experiences of these artists and to walk in the footsteps of the Impressionists
