ART²: An International Platform on Contemporary Art in NYC
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.
On the occasion of this festival, 4 publications published by Les presses du réel – New York Series. ART² and its various components are organized around seven areas of investigation, curated by renowned art experts.
