Georg Baselitz, 12th of April 2022 – 6MIC – 10:30 am

Georg Baselitz

Conference by Agnès Ghenassia

If the term expressionist is appropriate to qualify the work of Baselitz, it does not take into account his extraordinary capacity for renewal. A single constant through many stylistic breaks: the artist always stands up “against”: against the dictates of the post-war GDR, against abstraction, against all the traditions linked to figurative painting.
Whether he draws on history, art history or his personal story, his work, both brutal and subtle, makes him a major artist who deserves our full attention.

Contemporary African art

Africain contemporary art

Conference by Agnès Ghenassia

Qualified as “primitive art”, then as “first art” at the beginning of the 20th century, African art was a source of aesthetic inspiration for European artists, cubists and surrealists.
Today, after several decades of virtual invisibility, the African continent is well represented in our museums by the artists who live there and by those of the diaspora, and recent exhibitions in prestigious places have made us discover them.
In painting, sculpture, photography, installation, performance, all strive to express their identity, for some by evoking the difficulties and conflicts of which they have been victims, for others by putting their traditions at the service of contemporary creations. Humor and self-mockery are often present, as well as parodic quotations from Western art.
The women are very numerous, and among them some excel in textile practices that deserve their place in the museum.

Flowers in modern and contemporary art

Flowers in modern and contemporary art

Conference by Agnès Ghenassia

For centuries, the representation of flowers in painting was endowed with a precise symbolic charge.
The Impressionists ended this tradition by looking at flowers for what they are, a manifestation of the beauty of the world. A few modern artists have devoted themselves to it, but it is especially among contemporary ones, freed from the dictates of “modernism”, that flowers are once again the object of strong and unique practices.
So, a few days before Valentine’s Day, this conference will offer you a cheerful bouquet! (or rich and varied, as you prefer)

Plastic arts and music, conference of the 29th of June at the 6MIC

Plastic arts and music conference

A conference by Agnès Ghenassia,

Plastic arts and music

With the representation of musicians and instruments, music was initially a formal theme for painters. At the start of the 20th century, it was by relying on music that the pioneers of abstraction took the plunge, and simultaneously, avant-garde composers renewed their language through the confrontation with these painters, highlighting numerous correspondences structural. From the 1950s, it was an open-ended vision of art that the artists of the Fluxus movement imposes, organizing both plastic and musical events, and the very writing of musical scores evolves into “graphic scores”. But above all, they are stories of families and friendships, they are plastic artists and musicians. Musicians painters who have opened up an infinite field of renewal and invention, with a common goal: the expression of emotions.

Art and Advertising, conference of the 25th of May 2021

Conference Art and Advertising

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.

Hundertwasser, art serving the environmental cause

A conference by Agnès Ghenassia,

Painter, architect, committed artist, nonconformist and great traveler, Hundertwasser (1928-2000) was an avant-garde environmentalist in love with the democratization of beauty and a pioneer of humanist architecture.
We will see how this commitment was manifested in his work, which today can be a source of inspiration for generations of green builders.
