19h - 20h30
The writer, poet, historian, essayist, novelist, and art and architecture critic Michel Ragon rapidly expressed his support for the artists of CoBrA, and the proponents of abstract, informal, kinetic and outsider art. In 1965, he founded the GIAP (International Group for Prospective Architecture), which promoted experimental architecture. As part of the new presentation of the Centre Pompidou modern collections (1905-1965), one room has been devoted to this remarkable go-between – a "visionary" deeply committed to his times.
First-time screening of a filmed interview (45’) by Bernard Blistène with Michel Ragon. Speakers: Jean-Michel Bouhours and Marie-Ange Brayer, curators at the MNAM CCI; Laurent Baridon, art historian, Lumière-Lyon 2 University; Richard Leeman, art historian, Bordeaux-Montaigne University.
