PUBLIC POOL # 2 – “Objects have the word” // Cité internationale des arts // December 2016

PUBLIC POOL # 2 “objects have the floor”
Tuesday December 6th
Auditorium – International City of Arts
13:00 – 20:00

A proposal by Jean-Christophe Arcos, Marianne Derrien and Leïla Simon for the association C-E-A / Association française des commissaires d’expositions.
On the initiative of the association CEA / Association française des commissaires d’expositions, PUBLIC POOL # 2 “the objects have the word”, is a continuous event, a forum / forum of discussions on the artistic news in their report to the issues crossed currently within the society.
C-E-A proposes an unprecedented event within the Cité internationale des Arts, a place of residence for artists.
A fridge, a nice scooter, a atomixaire, and Dunlopillo; a stove with a glass oven, heaps of cutlery and cake shovels …

The modern period has sung us to wear the song of the object – overflowing the simple fetishism, his cult has today turned into a delegation to the object of our productive capacities, physical, cognitive. If art is the natural spouse of the object, the ready-made and the ambiguity of the design multiplied their points of contact. What about the subject? The subjectivity that characterizes the artist, the curator or the viewer would it have abandoned the field?
Each participant is invited to take inspiration from one or other of the 33 entries proposed in a given list, in order to propose a specific intervention pertaining to the position and the speech as well as a visual or performed proposal.
