Symbole de modernité et enjeu aussi politique que sécuritaire dès les années 1980, les Grands Ensembles ont, dans le champ de la création contemporaine, nourri un certain nombre de recherches alliant architecture, habitat social et représentations visuelles. À partir d’œuvres produites depuis une vingtaine d’années environ (de Valérie Jouve, Mohamed Bourouissa, Martha Rosler, David Hammons, Nathanaël Abeille, Stefan Eichhorn, etc.), cet ouvrage propose une lecture des rapports entretenus entre art et logement social, plus spécifiquement autour des Grands Ensembles. Entre idéalisation et rejet, ces derniers condensent en effet depuis les années 1950 l’essentiel des questionnements sur la ville, sur l’habitat populaire et sur la banlieue en tant qu’espace périphérique.

Ce livre accompagne l’exposition Les Grands Ensembles, organisée à L’Onde Théâtre Centre d’art du 05 février au 08 avril 2022.

Léo Guy-Denarcy est commissaire d’exposition et critique d’art. Il est actuellement responsable du Centre d’art de L’Onde à Vélizy-Villacoublay. Il a auparavant été curator associé à la Friche La Belle de Mai. Il a coordonné plusieurs catalogues monographiques, a participé à de nombreuses publications et collabore régulièrement au quotidien d’idées AOC. Il a également assuré plusieurs cycles de conférences pour l’association Connaissance de l’art contemporain, association nomade de médiation culturelle, ainsi que des missions auprès du ministère de la culture et de collectivités territoriales.
