Replacer le désir au centre du débat, maintenir la réflexion au cœur des échanges, et se donner
Moving desire back to the centre of the debate, ensuring reflection remains at the heart of our discussions, and giving ourselves the means to share knowledge. The guiding principle of this new issue of d’art & de culture, knowledge transfer, opens up the arts to all audiences, starting with the youngest, whom the Printemps des Arts de Monte-Carlo festival, the Rencontres Philosophiques de Monaco, and the Ballets de Monte-Carlo are turning their attention to through dedicated projects covered in these pages.
Unsettling or brilliant? The pictorial universe of George Condo is certainly populated with strange figures. The artist questions us on our own “humanoidity” in a retrospective exhibition organised at Villa Paloma/Nouveau Musée National de Monaco.
With characteristic frankness, Jacques Weber talks to us about “theatre and acting”, in the disorder of the passions and feelings that govern his choice of texts for his new stage show, Eclats de vie, presented at the Théâtre Princesse Grace de Monaco this spring.
In turn, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo opens a highly anticipated musical window with the film-concert featuring 2001: A Space Odyssey, which promises a dazzling spectacle on the big screen. And “cultural grandeur” is also the order of the day in the series of cinematographic events organised by the Audiovisual Institute of Monaco, which has also masterminded a new annual exhibition.
From the strangeness of Condo in Monaco, to the mixture of arts in Antibes, and the troubling world of Thomas Demand in Paris, issue 61 of d’art & de culture continues its commitment to culture, here and now.
