The word of our President
Dear Members, Dear Friends,
I hope you all had a great holiday and a wonderful summer and we are delighted to see you again on Tuesday September 27 at 10:30 a.m. at 6MIC for a conference by Agnès Ghenassia whose theme will be “Children and Adolescents in Modern Art. and contemporary”.
Agnès Ghenassia wished to provide us with the following details:
The conference on Tuesday, September 27 at 6MIC will have the theme “children and adolescents in modern and contemporary art”, because many of us have rubbed shoulders with young people, young and old, during the summer. Without repeating the works of the exhibition “Presumed Innocents” of which we have already mentioned the controversies it had aroused, we will see how and why painters and sculptors take up this subject which is at once biographical, nostalgic and sometimes political. .
While waiting for the 27th, you will be able to come and enjoy at the Méjanes library, from September 13th, the exhibition of the work carried out by the GAG (Agnès Ghenassia’s group) during the 2021-2022 school year, About twenty visual artists amateurs among you worked around the cross-cutting theme of hybridizations: hybridization of cultures, techniques, media.
You are cordially invited to the opening on September 13 at 6 p.m.
Exhibition from September 13 to 24
Opening hours: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Kind regards to all, and above all, take care of yourself.
Our next meeting
Wednesday October 12th at 10:30 a.m. at 6MIC for a new conference by Agnès Ghenassia.
A conference by Agnès Ghenassia

An essential instrument for the realization of self-portraits before photography, the mirror in painting has long been used to evoke the notions of narcissism, the ephemeral, knowledge, precision, philosophical meditation. But above all, the mirror opens up the space of the painting, questioning the mimetic power of painting. What about the moderns who refuse illusionism? Are the contemporaries who seized on real mirrors still within the tradition? We will try to reflect in images on these many questions.
MEMBERS ENTRY FEE : 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 district of Constance in Aix-en-Provence, a few hundred meters from the Vasarely Foundation, at the level of the chemin Hawthorns.
