ART²: An International Platform on Contemporary Art
The Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States presents ART², a month-long visual arts festival exploring ideas and themes paramount to the international art world, which will be presented with more than 40 partner museums, galleries, universities, and non-profit spaces in New York during April 2014. The culmination of 18 months of cross-cultural research, ART² will consider seven main issues prevalent in today’s patently global art world through exhibitions, public lectures, workshops and conferences by French and American art experts, with the goal of encouraging intellectual discourse between institutions, artists, scholars, students and the public. The conversations and workshops aim to generate constructive debate and explore the differences among French and American culture. More than an event-driven project, ART² was conceived as a platform for generating “intellectual friction” between artists, arts professionals and those interested in contemporary art.
ElleaimeNY's Blog is the result of the homework Laurence Neron-Bancel does to schedule her visits in cities around the world and during international artfairs, get inspiration for her collages; keep records of artists; an incomplete and arbitrary guide of events in and around Westchester, New York and elsewhere. It is less public than facebook and used as tool for LMCollage and LM Studio, the New artist's residency program just recently launched in Hyeres France If there's an event you'd like considered for inclusion, send your announcement to Laurenceneronbancel@gmail.com
There is no such thing as good painting about nothing.+ I’m not an abstractionist. I’m not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else. I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on.Mark ROTHKO
