The Dream of Forms at the Palais de Tokyo
This summer, the Palais de TokyoReinvents shapes because “What shapes are we dreaming of? What do shapes dream about? “A score of contemporary artists and scientists have gathered to try to answer these questions. Together, they explored the uncertainty of forms at the Fresnoy school. Also called “the Villa Medicis high-tech”, it is currently recognized for its advanced technology! It is no coincidence that today, the exhibition questions two major issues: unique art and science. Two areas that feed on one another and reinvent themselves a little more.
It is an imaginary landscape that you can see at the Palais de Tokyo. These are unknown forms, future universes. Discover here a primitivity that you do not know yet. That of metamorphoses, of a hypothetical world. Immersed in the digital, mechanical, you will explore new possibilities. You will renew with nature, its animal and vegetable world. Imagine the unimaginable, find an abstract universe where “everything deforms, even the shapeless” (Victor Hugo).
Exhibition Dalí: Eureka! At the Museum of Modern Art of Céret
Salvador Dalí continues to make people talk about him, even after his death! An exhibition on its relation to science is currently organized at the Museum of Modern Art in Céret. City in which he spent during his tour in Roussillon. The museum also invited those who knew or met the artist to come and testify. This is how one learns the eminent triumph of his arrival in this charming border town of Spain.
Dali is an exciting personality, curious from every angle. Surrealism was an art of living for him. He is in search of immortality and would like to pierce the mysteries of existence. His research has led him to various scientific fields. He encounters psychoanalysis with Freud, he asks about the atom after Hiroshima and Nagazaki. He is looking for answers in quantum mechanics, evolution, mathematics … And this is what the Museum of Modern Art of Céret exhibits this summer. You will explore the various research, scientific-artistic discoveries of a “genius” of the twentieth! And when Le Figaro asks him why this unexpected interest in science comes to him, he answers without hesitation that “artists do not interest me. I believe that artists should have scientific notions to advance on another ground, that of unity. ” And now KAZoART also asks a question: was Dalí so crazy that it did not appear?

Composed of a pinch of envy, a zest of passion … “Surely, the parking of Saint-Gervais is the new place impossible to circumvent contemporary art.
A thousand kisses at the Museum of Fine Arts of Calais
“The only real language in the world is a kiss,” said Musset. It is universal, timeless and practiced at all hours of the day, or at night. It is the privilege of lovers. It is a moment of tenderness, a declaration, a promise, a secret, a ritual … The kiss, so common in appearance, can say so many things! But what does Art say?

It is an opening over two centuries of tenderness among the greatest artists. Brancusi, Picasso, Le Corbusier, Orlan, Chagall … have also spoken this language and their works bear witness to this. “Between myth and reality, between codes and protocols of yesterday, today and tomorrow, they (re) think of the relationship with the Other. “With the exhibition” The Kiss in Art … from Rodin to Wan Du “.
