Modern and contemporary portraits and self-portraits, the 3rd of March 2020

A conference by Agnès Ghenassia

The portrait, which in the nineteenth century was still the result of private commissions, has become among modern artists the support of many formal researches. Much more than a simple imitation of the model, it bears witness to many questions linked to the “presence” of an identity, even when screened by distortion.
Whether it is the fruit of a face to face with the living model or composed from a photograph, what does the “flesh” of the painting bring to the face?
Today, portraiture is making a massive return to contemporary art, sometimes questioning the “I” as a social, moving construction, and moving away from the true and the authentic, but still showing interest in individual.

A conference by Agnès Ghenassia

In sculpture, many artists renew the tradition of the old Cabinets de Curiosités by imagining all kinds of hybridizations, others divert the traditional use of taxidermy to express their empathy towards the animal world.
Finally, since the 1970s, the use of live animals, sometimes questionable, has been the tireless desire to reduce the gap between art and life.
