Venice Biennale 2022

Biennale de Venise 2022

Conference by Agnès Ghenassia

We are going to come back to the highlights of this Biennial dedicated to women of all cultures and to imaginary worlds, so for those who visited it to deepen their understanding of the works presented, and for those who are going to discover them through images, to share our emotions and our questions.
We will also see that many National Pavilions have chosen to entrust their spaces to artists from immigrant backgrounds or belonging to once despised minorities, demonstrating once again that the art world ignores geopolitical and mental boundaries and demonstrates with a healthy open-mindedness.

Conference on Tuesday the 14th of June 2022 à 10:30 am

ENTRY FEE FOR MEMBERS : 5€
NON MEMBERS : 7€

The conference will be held at the 6MIC (Salle des Musiques Actuelles du Pays d’Aix), located at the entrance to the new Constance district in Aix-en-Provence, a few hundred meters from the Vasarely Foundation, at the level of the chemin des Aubépines.

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)
