The second exhibition of the year shows the works of the artist Motoko Tachikawa, https://sites.google.com/site/motokotachikawa/accueil. Many of them were created during her residency at EAC Les Thermes, some from before are in too. The focus of Motoko’s attention is often on the unnoticed along the way. Often overlooked but remarkably tough and resistant and of astonishing beauty.

The News Section can also show participation of our artists in exhibitions taking place in the region. The artists who participate in our residency and exhibitions at EAC Les Thermes, not only enrich Bourbonne les Bain, but through their being here also enrich the rest of the region and the whole of France.
The possibility for our artists to also participate in such exhibitions, strengthens the vision of EAC Les Thermes, which is to nurture, enable and facilitate connection, exchange and creation, thereby transforming barriers between ways of living into something more translucide, by working on breaking down barriers of class, gender, colour, culture.
