FRESCO is an off-site project celebrating Atelier Circulaire's 40th anniversary.

In winter 2023, Atelier members are invited to create an edition of original works in a maximum of two colors (black and red), to be silkscreen printed on phosphorescent self-adhesive paper. The aim is for the posters to be visible in the dark when stuck up in public spaces.

40 member artists accepted Atelier Circulaire's invitation, and a total of 42 works will be presented in autumn 2023.

An edition of seven copies has been printed for each of the proposed works.

A first poster is pasted in the public space in November on different surfaces in the Atelier Circulaire area. A second was chosen for the exhibition at the gallery in December. The other five copies of the edition are reserved for the artist (2), for legal deposit (2) and for the Atelier's archives (1).

As the unauthorized display of works in the vicinity of Atelier Circulaire did not allow for an overview of the proposals made by member artists, the team decided to present the FRESCO project at the gallery for three days.

From the public space to the gallery, the visitor experience is to be preserved! The exhibition's scenography represents the idea of "affichage sauvage": works are randomly displayed on one of the gallery's walls.
