International Conference 'Contemporary Art and the French Riviera: An experimental territory, 1951-2011’
Call for Papers Date:
The international conference ‘Contemporary Art and the French Riviera: An experimental territory, 1951-2011’ sets out to launch and a reflection on contemporary art in a given territory, i.e. the French Riviera, from the end of the Second World War to nowadays. The goal is to understand for what reasons the French Riviera has been for the last 60 years an extraordinary laboratory
which has been ceaselessly producing and welcoming new artists. What is expected from the papers and plenary sessions is a discussion going beyond the usual temporary or generic landmarks in order to describe and dissect the panorama of an artistic production placed under the sign of experimentation.
This conference is organized in the framework of the exceptional exhibition ‘Contemporary Art and the French Riviera: An experimental territory, 1951-2011’ which is curated by the 20th-century national museums of the Alpes-Maritimes, by the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Nice, by the Jean Cocteau Museum of Menton, by the Château de Villeneuve, by the Emile Hugues Foundation of Vence and by the national centre of contemporary art of the Villa Arson.
Co-organized by the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis and the association Contemporary Art and the French Riviera.
