Lectures of L’École des Modernités (online/Paris, 21 Sep 21-13 Jun 22)

Giacometti Institute, Paris, and Online, Sep 21, 2021–Jun 13, 2022

Hugo Daniel

Lectures of L’École des Modernités
Programme 2021-2022

The cycle of lectures of the L’École des Modernités contributes to a history of modern art by bringing in the great specialists of the period (1905-1960). Like Alberto Giacometti, many foreign artists passed through Paris, attracted by a context propitious to intellectual and artistic exchanges. By studying a movement or a context, by revisiting the oeuvre and course of artists lesser known or forgotten, L’École des Modernités contributes to a rereading of the art history of the modern period.

Lectures in English or in French, free at the “Giacometti Lab” of the Giacometti Institute (7, rue Victor Schoelcher, Paris, 14th arrondissement), or live on YouTube.
