Henri GUETTE
critique d'art et commissaire d'exposition indépendant - art critic and independant curator

Biography


Vit à : Paris , France

Henri Guette is an art critic, member of the AICA, and exhibition curator. Through his different statuses, he wants above all to be a passer. He came to contemporary art through an interest in contemporary poetry, and more specifically in Charles Pennequin’s relationship to performance art. He works through the prism of literature, paying particular attention to language and narratives. Graduated from the Sorbonne’s Master’s degree in “Contemporary Art and its Exhibition”, he is developing a research project on the links between art and literature, which he presents in writing or through his voice with the Jeunes Critiques d’art collective or the program En Pleines Formes. He has held various positions as a cultural project manager for the University of Lille, where he coordinated artistic residencies and part of the programming. Today he is developing his activity as an exhibition curator within the Fernrohr association, working on the adaptation of a cycle of Jules Verne novels, including Le Rayon vert, which allows him to use fiction as a space for encounters.
