Lectures of the School of Modernities – Announcements


The cycle of conferences of the École des Modernités contributes to a history of modern art by bringing together the great specialists of the period (1905-1960). Like Alberto Giacometti, many foreign artists have passed through Paris, attracted by a context conducive to intellectual and artistic exchanges. By studying a movement or a context, by revisiting the work and the career of little-known or forgotten artists, L’École des Modernités contributes to a rereading of the history of art of the modern period.

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