The word of our President
Dear Members, Dear Friends
I am delighted to meet you again on Tuesday 12 of April at 10.30 am at the 6MIC for a lecture by Agnès Ghenassia who will present the work of “Georg Baselitz”. A famous German painter, known for his neo-expressionist paintings with particular brushstrokes and often painted upside down. A nice conference in perspective.
In May, some of you will participate in the Venice Biennale from 16 to 20 May. We are planning another trip to Venice in September.
On Tuesday 14 June, Agnès Ghenassia will give us a lecture on “The discoveries of the Venice Biennale 2022”.
Don’t miss the beautiful exhibition at the Vasarely Foundation, 50 Years of the Future, on view until May 8. It would be a real shame to miss this beautiful exhibition.
A concert is scheduled at the Vasarely Foundation on April 9th at 7pm.
Mónika Lakatos and the musicians of the group Romengo have mastered Hungarian and Gypsy music like their mother tongue. Romengo has always combined tradition and modernity. In addition to the traditional melodies of the gypsy repertoire of which they are virtuosos, they play their own songs and are constantly searching for new sounds.
Not to be missed!
I remind you that you can find the content of these conferences at any time by connecting to Jacques Revy’s blog: http://art.moderne.utl13.fr/. This will allow you to come back to a conference you may have missed for example.
Finally, we have launched the membership renewal for 2022. Remember to bring a cheque for €20 or €30 or cash. Your new card will be given to you at that time.
Best wishes to all, and above all, take care of yourself.
Our next meeting
A conference led by Agnès Ghenassia
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.
Conference on Tuesday the 12th of April 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.
