Psychedelic Explorations in France, 1968 - ∞

Somewhere between installation, stage and sculpture, I∆O is an attempt to put on an exhibition of the psychedelic experience. Based on a novel exploration of the cluster of artists active in France from the end of the 1960s on, a multi-disciplinary curatorial team, in conjunction with the artist Lili Reynaud Dewar, combines an outstanding corpus of archives, objects and works with a busy programme including films, concerts, encounters, and specific artists’ projects.


Today, a new generation of artists is drawing from the springs of historical psychedelics and ushering in what has been called the third psychedelic revolution—the second one being the emergence of the electronic culture in the late 1980s. As of now, I∆O enceforth, represents the first light ever shed on psychedelics as understood from the French context and its many international ramifications. Based on the notion of experience—and experiment-- I∆O enceforth,  proposes a three-month trip across the psychedelics of yesterday and today. A three-day festival, bringing together some 30 musical groups and encompassing screenings, readings and lectures, will open the event on 28, 29 and 30 November 2008  in the spectacular nave of the CAPC.
