8th edition

from 8th june to 8th july 2018

in Besançon (France)


Bien Urbain 2014



Artistic routes through (and with) public spaces

Besançon, from 7th June, to 5th July 2014
11 rue Battant, “Chez Urbain”


For this fourth edition, about fifteen artists invest Besançon on an axis connecting the city center to the University campus. They create during a month, for (and with) the street, the people, the facades, the architecture, the sounds… Wall painting, installations, sound or interactive creations appear thanks to these artists motivated by the relationship between art and public space.


It is not about creating an open-air art gallery neither about decorating the town. Bien Urbain offers breathing times in our daily life, through visuals and sounds.





Every year, our spot moves to a different place for the length of the event: “Chez Urbain” is open for everyone to meet the artists, the team or to get informations about the event.


You can find us at CHEZ URBAIN, 11 rue Battant, from June 7 to July 5.
from Monday to Saturday from 2pm to 8pm, Sunday from 9am to 3pm.
later in the event days (see program)


Available at our headquarter: informations, specialized bookshop, meetings with artists, starting point for visits, audioguide for the sound walk, drinks …
