FOCUS FIAC / ATELIERS DE RENNES - BIENNALE D’ART CONTEMPORAIN
FOCUS FIAC / RENNES WORKSHOPS - CONTEMPORARY ART BIENNIAL
October 15 - 20, 2012
Within the framework of the FOCUS for visual arts and on the occasion of the FIAC international contemporary art fair within the Grand Palais, approximately 10 international curators are chosen among the promising personalities from the key influencer and emergent countries. They are invited to discover the French artistic scene through visits of the diverse spaces dedicated to contemporary art (museums, art centers, foundations, galleries) and meetings with artists and curators.
For the first time, the FOCUS guests of the Institut Français will have exchanges with the YCI guests (Young Curators Invitational) of the FIAC and the Ricard Foundation.
The key moments of these professional invitations:
Encounters with the artists nominated by the Marcel Duchamp Prize, visits of exhibitions by Adel Abdessemed, Bertrand Lavier and Mircea Cantor at the Georges Pompidou Center, the Palais de Tokyo as well as the Rennes Workshops - Contemporary Art Biennial.
