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.

No Borders / Sans frontières

In the context of the 50th anniversary of the "Rencontres d’Arles" photography festival, ‘A Podcast, An Artwork’ invites journalist Lydie Mushamalirwa to direct a series on photography. She gives the floor to five photographers who have exhibited at the "Rencontres d’Arles" and whose work features in the Centre Pompidou collection.
