EXHIBITION ON CHARLES RAY

A major figure in the art of our time, the American sculptor Charles Ray (born in 1953), is making cultural headlines: in dialogue with the artist, the Bourse de Commerce-Pinault Collection is devoting a major exhibition to him.

The works of Charles Ray are part of a deep knowledge of the history of classical art and Antiquity.

Whether the work is produced in steel, cement, fiberglass, polished steel, or aluminum, Charles Ray’s practice calls upon various processes, between artisanal work and cutting-edge industrial technology, always concealing its sometimes dizzying complexity. and the often very long time of its elaboration.

His artistic practice places the question of space at the center of his research and offers the viewer an experience of the relationship to reality, more complex, more mysterious.

The artist also has fun “making us look twice”. Even more: as much by their « strange familiarity », their ambiguity, as by their unspeakable precision that looks like prowess, Charles Ray’s works destabilize, as if under the effect of a hallucination, almost managing to shake the space around them. they, reality itself, silently bringing the observer into a form of fiction.

The exhibition will end on June 06, 2022

How to become a parisian in one hour

This show is written, directed and performed by Olivier Giraud.

In 2001, Olivier packed his bags and left for the United States. He obtained a 6-year visa, and quickly became Maître d’Hôtel in one of the most prestigious hotels on the East Coast, in Palm Springs, Florida.

With his professional experience on the other side of the world, Olivier was passionate about the cultural differences he observed between the French and the rest of the world.

He then decided to write a show about Parisians because his American clients always asked him the same question: “Why are Parisians so arrogant?” “. This show is written all in English, and will be interpreted as such.

After two years of writing, he presented his project to many entertainment professionals to obtain their support. Unfortunately his project is cataloged as doomed to failure. No one wants to bet on him, a choice is then necessary: ​​to create his own production company “La French Arrogance Production”.

The show attracts both French and international spectators.

THE CHAMPOLLION ADVENTURE, IN THE SECRET OF HIEROGLYPHICS

On the occasion of the bicentenary of the decipherment of hieroglyphs, the François Mitterrand Library offers you an exhibition which focuses on the figure and discoveries of Jean François Champollion (1790-1832), father of Egyptology.
Barely 32 years old at the time, the young scientist exhibited his luminous interpretation of the graphic system of the ancient Egyptians.
Champollion thus offers the world knowledge of the names of the pharaohs who built the pyramids, the deciphering of the books of the dead found in the tombs and the understanding of a lost language and literature.
The exhibition includes nearly 350 pieces (manuscripts, prints, photographs, papyri, etc.), from the collections of the BNF and from exceptional loans, in particular from the Louvre Museum and the Egizio Museum in Turin. They will introduce the public to the “Champollion method”, and bring life back to a civilization that still fascinates today.
