You want to show your work? The Reunion of Metropolitan Museums (RMM) Rouen Normandie opens its doors to you, anxious to welcome contemporary art in each of its institutions, to arouse curiosity and encourage discovery.

Inaugurated for the first time in January 2016, on the occasion of the creation of the Reunion of Metropolitan Museums, La Ronde is a unique moment in the year that aims to make discover, promote and support contemporary creation.
In 2023, La Ronde returns for a seventh edition! From September 15, 2023 to March 5, 2024, the museums of the Metropolis are open to all forms of contemporary culture - visual arts, poetic writing, performance - by welcoming, on the basis of a call for projects, confirmed and emerging artists. Thus, the public is invited to discover, in each of the museums of the RMM, contemporary works dialogue with the collections.



This call for projects is addressed to artists wishing to get involved in the territorial dynamics of the Rouen Normandy Metropolis in terms of contemporary art.
The selection process will be based on the application form, attached to this call for proposals (one application per project). Projects will be selected by the jury based on their quality, technical feasibility and ability to interact with the collections.
A communication campaign (annual programme, press conference, social event, leaflet, posters) will be organized by the RMM. An issue of the annual magazine, La Ronde, dedicated to contemporary art and published by the RMM, will be published on this occasion (September 2023).
