Tuesday 21 March 2023

7:00pm - 8:30pm

Amphithéâtre d'Honneur

14 rue Bonaparte, 75006 Paris


A roundtable discussion in the context of the exhibition Les professeurs gribouillent aussi... and on the occasion of Printemps du dessin 2023. 
The aim is to explore the conditions of appearance of the work, those that the artist chooses and those that escape his control, to evoke the place of chance, the environment, the unconscious in the creative process and the art of doodling.
In the presence of the artists: Hicham Berrada, Pierre Buraglio, Gilgian Gelzer, Frédérique Loutz, Bernard Moninot, Valérie Sonnier and Nathalie Talec. 
Organised within the framework of the Chaire Dessin Extra Large, coordinated by Barbara Soyer, the round table will be moderated by Kathy Alliou, director of the Department of Works, Hélène Gasnault, curator of drawings and curator of the exhibition Les professeurs gribouillent aussi... and Alain Berland, head of cultural programming. With the participation of Joana P.R. Neves, artistic director of Drawing Now Art Fair, which opens on Wednesday 22 March at the Carreau du Temple.
