Marcelline Delbecq, «L'académie intérieure»

Friday, January 30, 2015, at 07 PM, free admission


Listen to the conference on France Culture plus :
Marcelline Delbecq has invited Beatrice Gross, curator and art critic, and Bertrand Schefer, writer and filmmaker, co-curator of the exhibition Silence Trompeur to interpret the concept of Inner Academy stated by Jeff Wall.

Marcelline Delbecq is inviting Béatrice Gross (a New York-based exhibition curator and art critic) and Bertrand Schefer (a writer and film-maker, and joint curator of the exhibition Deceptive Silence) to freely interpret the nation of Inner Academy as discussed by Jeff Wall.* What images form us? To what extent is our future of thinking conditioned by our past of images? How do the images we remember and those we forget act?

All questions for which possible answers will be offered by a lecture by Béatrice Gross exploring the genealogies of artists, Bertrand Schefer’s reading from his latest book La photo au-dessus du lit/The Photo over the Bed (P.O.L., 2014) and Marcelline Delbecq’s reading from her book Oublier, voir/Forgetting, Seeing (2014).

*Jeff Wall, essais et entretiens, 1984-2001, Paris: Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, 2001.
