Dance and the plastic arts, the 16th of November at 10:30 am

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

Conference : 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.

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.

Beaches and Bathers in contemporary and modern art, 22nd of Septembre 2020 at 10:30 am

Beaches and Bathers in contemporary and modern art

A conference by Agnès Ghenassia

Since fashion for sea bathing which developed in the middle of the 19th century, a number of painters have dealt with the theme of the beach, sometimes privileged its luminous atmospheres, sometimes its social dimension.
Enigmatic, Cézanne’s bathers are timeless. Troubling, those of Picasso accompany each of his stylistic breaks. Exploring this theme to its contemporary interpretations will allow us to extend the pleasures of summer into September.

Modern and contemporary portraits and self-portraits, part two

A conference by Agnès Ghenassia,

If the procedures of deformation and of disfigurement are always numerous and varied. Several artists underline the character of the “social mask” of the face, victim of a standardisation of the aesthetic models. Finally, others use the portrait to denounce the everyone for oneself. A society whose individuals have stopped communicating with each other.

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.
