Marseille kicks off Capital of Culture Year

January has been an exciting month in Provence, as Marseille and the region kicked off a year of festivities, with 400 cultural and artistic events (contemporary dance, music, plastic arts, theatre, exhibitions, street art, litterature, digital art, cinema, etc.). The official opening festivities which took place accross the region unveiled many astounding exhibits, such as this one (by Yayoi Kusama), in Aix en Provence: the huge sycamore trees along Cours Mirabeau (Aix' Champs Elysees) have been wrapped in a red and white polka-dotty fabric, giving this beautiful perspective that king Rene of Anjou seems to enjoy from his pedestal.
