Jean-Hubert Martin (France). Carambolages

Born in 1944, Jean-Hubert Martin joined the Musée National d'Art Moderne in Paris as a curator in 1971, and was part of the team that established the Centre Pompidou in 1977. After serving as the director of Kunsthalle Bern in 1982-1985, Martin returned in 1987-1990 to the Pompidou as director of the Musée National d'Art Moderne, and has since overseen institutions including the Musée National des Arts d'Afrique et d'Océanie in Paris and the Museum Kunstpalast in Dusseldorf. His organization of the exhibition "Magiciens de la Terre" in 1989, which included established contemporary artists from the West with their peers from across the world, is widely regarded as a breakthrough in reassessing the center-periphery hierarchy of Modernism.

Jean-Hubert Martin is the curator of the exhibition Carambolages, that takes place up to July 4th 2016 in Grand Palais, Galeries nationales, Paris.

Martin will develop on how thinking through images becomes a dominant way of thinking today, what is the meaning of his new project and how he feels about today’s audience.  

Carambolage, or Cannon in English is a term used in the game of billiards. A shot in billiards in which the cue ball contacts one object ball and then the other, ricochet.

185 works of art from different eras, styles and countries are presented in an exhibition designed like a game of dominoes, where each work leads to the next by an association of ideas or forms. The creations of Boucher, Giacometti, Rembrandt, Man Ray, Annette Messager and other anonymous artists interact in a fun tour that revisits our traditional approach to art history.

The lecture starts at 7 p.m.
Venue: lecture hall of the Prince Golitsyn Family Estate

Free entrance. Preliminary registration is required.
