A Podcast, an Artwork

Tackle major social issues through a work and artist.

In French.

 

Each month, the program “A Podcast, an Artwork” explores a major work of the collection, drawing from the archives of historical conferences, exclusive interviews, bold points of view and contemporary music. According to the Museum’s presentations, some works are not exhibited.

 

On the road with...

Modern art was not all made solely in artists’ studios, most of them in Paris. Since the Impressionists, artists have left their lairs for other horizons. How did such encounters between a place and an artist go, and what did they produce?

In each of these 10 episodes, journalist Christine Simeone takes us in the footsteps of an artist in the collection somewhere in France, in a town or village, out in the wilds, by the shores of the sea or the banks of a river.
