The sector will be open to the public from Wednesday June 17 to Sunday June 21, culminating in Parcours Night on Saturday June 20—an evening of late night openings of all Parcours projects, a special intervention by Lara Schnitger and an evening program curated by Derieux of performances by Rosa Barba, Julien Bismuth and Erkka Nissinen as well as a DJ set by Haroon Mirza with London-based band Factory Floor.
