Dévaler (Go downhill)

Parcours d'art contemporain

“Dévaler” is a contemporary art trail in Sainte Marie aux Mines in the Val d’Argent – a small industrial town nestling in the Vosges mountains, marked by centuries of mining and the textile industry.

Dévaler showcases the richness of this exceptional and often little-known heritage, while highlighting the work of contemporary artists linked to the area.

This first edition is being held in conjunction with the “C’est dans la vallée” music festival, the brainchild of musician and composer Rodolphe Burger.

The FRAC Alsace is one of this year’s partners, presenting works by several artists (Benjamin Just, Naji Kamouche, Gerda Steiner & Jörg Lenzlinger, Anna Voreux) who have been in residence in the Valley, at the Eglise des Chaînes in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines.
