A wide range of exhibitions and events in several sites in and around the city featuring numerous international artists.
Les Rencontres du 9e Art in Aix-en-Provence set comics at the centre of the graphic arts and provide a programme deliberately moving off the beaten path.
Since 2004, the Festival supported by the Aix-en-Provence Tourist Office has stood out from the many Comics fairs for its duration, its top level programme and the fact that all the events on offer are free.
In 2019, Les Rencontres du 9e Art has brought a new way to explore the work of the guest artists at the festival. A series of events taking place over two months and focusing on original creations and ideas developed alongside the guest authors: exhibitions, debates, workshops, performances, etc. The programme includes: Andy Warhol by Typex, a game in the city, like a mask hunt with Sophie Guerrive, the work of Cezanne revisited by Eric Lambé (a prize-winner at the Angoulême festival, shows and exhibitions for young people with Saïd Sassine and Gaëtan Dorémus and a football fiesta with 40 artists inventing their own Panini collection.
