City/Cité: The Art of Metropolitan Trails 


October 14, 2023 October 22, 2023

Free and Open to the public

Exhibition created by the Pavillon de l’Arsenal, Paris, 2020.

From Bordeaux to Boston, Istanbul, Milan, Marseille, and beyond, metropolitan trails have generated a new creative space that lies at the crossroads of urban planning, art, tourism, and environmentalism. Mixing the urban with the cultural, these projects involve many aspects, ranging from the initial, collective attempts to develop them (scouting, city walks, and metropolitan hiking) to documenting them (through art projects, books, articles, travel journals, audiobooks, documentary films, and exhibitions), ultimately resulting in a collective itinerary created in conjunction with local authorities. The exhibition “The Art of Metropolitan Trails” describes this emerging practice, pays homage to its pioneers, and explains how to create a metropolitan trail.

“The Art of Metropolitan Trails” is presented by Villa Albertine and Atlanta Design Festival as part of City/Cité Atlanta x Marseille: Towards Earthly Cities. 

Designed in 2015 and first implemented in Chicago and San Francisco, City/Cité is a transatlantic cooperation and exchange program on urban issues and city making, initiated by Villa Albertine. Coming to Atlanta for the second time, City/Cité Atlanta x Marseille 2023 will host discussions and artistic programming that highlight connections in culture, urban development, and society between Atlanta and Marseille.
