Exposition au Musée « Points de rencontres »

Fruit de la première saison du Fonds de dotation Centre Pompidou Accélérations, l’exposition « Points de rencontres » est née en 2018 d’une rencontre avec 7 entreprises (Teréga, Cdiscount, Orange, Neuflize OBC, Axa, Tilder, Ermewa) décidées à s’engager dans un dialogue original avec le monde artistique, les équipes et les publics du Centre Pompidou. Les œuvres créées à cette occasion par Hubert Duprat, Lionel Estève, Alexandre Estrela, Agnès Geoffray, Axa, Jonathan Monk, Camila Oliveira Fairclough et Bruno Serralongue dialoguent avec une sélection d’œuvres modernes ou contemporaines issues des collections (Joseph Albers, Brassaï, Sonia Delaunay, Paul Klee…) ; toutes ont l’émotion comme point commun, du rire aux larmes, de l’amour à la détestation.

Entretien avec Frédéric Paul, commissaire de l’exposition « Points de rencontres », sur l’art et l’émotion.
