Modern art and the sacred, conference of Thursday the 9th of December 2021

A conference by Agnès Ghenassia

The origins of art, in all cultures, are deeply linked to gods or to God.
What about this relationship to the sacred in the disenchanted context of modern and contemporary art? artists must invent new forms of trade with the invisible, with the very idea of ​​transcendence.
What traces remain of the connivance with the religion which had carried art for centuries?

Conference: Dance and the plastic arts

A conference by Agnès Ghenassia,

Modernity gave birth to “free dance”, which profoundly changed for painters and sculptors the way of representing the body. Common research on movement; light and sound then brought together choreographers and visual artists around the 1950s. Finally, the common desire to bring art closer to life brings together contemporary dance and the art of performance. Contemporary designers feed off these mutual influences.

Misunderstandings, controversies and scandals of modern and contemporary art

A conference by Agnès Ghenassia,

The history of art is strewn with controversies and scandals because the freedom of expression of artists often comes up against the incomprehension and the anger of the public.
If some of these misunderstandings and rejections make people smile a few decades later, others continue today to fuel debates and serve as arguments for detractors of contemporary art, especially in an economic context where scandal sells.

Conference of the 14th of September at the 6MIC, ART AND FASHION

Art and Fashion, a conference by Agnès Ghenassia

A conference by Agnès Ghenassia,

Fashion, said Yves Saint-Laurent, is ” a profession which is not quite an art, but which needs an artist to exist “. Art and fashion have a lot to share, for example, in the 1960s, the wave of Op Art initiated by Victor Vasarely inspired talented couturiers and helped bring art to the streets.

Moreover, from its inception, Haute Couture has established “ collaborations ” with artists, which continue even today, when the big fashion houses offer visual artists to shake up their traditional image.

By browsing the great fashion movements of the twentieth century, we will also see the role played by major magazines like Harper’s Bazaar in the rapprochement between art and fashion, as well as the role of some great photographers who have helped to change our outlook on fashion. and on beauty.

Finally, while the contemporary trend is to erase the boundaries between the arts, other surprises await us, because the fashion shows have become real performances and fashion also inspires visual artists.

Art and Advertising, the 19th of January 2021 at 10:30 am

Art and Advertising conference cancelled

A conference by Agnès Ghenassia,

The traditional pattern is that art creates and the applied arts, of which advertising is a part, follow. But history shows that many overlaps make this received idea more complex and that artists have also sometimes used the language of advertisers.
From the Toulouse-Lautrec posters, which have acquired the status of a work of art, to the most recent misappropriation of iconic works by brands, the relations between art and advertising are rich in exchanges and reciprocal contaminations that will feed our thinking.
