The creation of the Centre Pompidou's future Ile-de-France conservation and creation centre in Massy aims to develop a cultural and artistic programme for all based around the Centre Pompidou's collection.

Restauration du rideau de scène du ballet Parade

 Exposition | Rencontres | Spectacles 

 

Une série d'événements autour de la campagne de restauration du rideau de scène peint par Pablo Picasso pour le ballet Parade – œuvre de commande écrite par Jean Cocteau, sur une musique d’Erik Satie, avec des décors et costumes de Pablo Picasso et une chorégraphie signée Leonide Massine. Monté par Serge de Diaghilev pour les Ballets russes, ce célèbre ballet a été créé à Paris le 18 mai 1917 au Théâtre du Châtelet.

Née d’une collaboration entre différents artistes de disciplines diverses, Parade donne le thème de la saison 2022-2023 de ce programme de préfiguration : le collectif à l’œuvre.

Breaking point: Photo residency in the Orge Valley
Benoît Fougeirol

 Artist residency | Photography 

 

The photography project along the Orge Valley proposed by Benoît Fougeirol will address issues concerning the memory of the territory, changes to and transformations of the space and ways of inhabiting it.

 

Initiated between 2016 and 2019 as part of a seminar at the Paris-La Villette School of Architecture, the project will pursue the photographic research carried out on the landscape along the Orge valley to measure its complexity and understand its physical, cultural and mental dimensions. 
To anchor the project in a philosophy of exchange and to accompany the research, local residents will be invited to share this experience of the territory through walks organised between Saint-Martin-de-Bréthencourt and Athis-Mons. The chosen routes will focus on the local area and provide an opportunity for exchange and the emergence of questions around the landscape crossed, history, ecology, experience and the story as a form of collective possession.

Mobile baby station #3

Hexacolor, Julie Safirstein

 Travelling workshop | 0-2 years 

 

Hexacolor is a space for toddlers created by artist Julie Safirstein on the theme of colour.

 

A little light creeps into the room and a world of colours and shapes appears. Primary and secondary colours, superimpositions, halos and reflections: Julie Safirstein's device plunges youngsters and their parents into a colourful new world and invites them to explore. Look, but also look at oneself, see through, observe in front and behind, hide, enter, leave… Hexacolor is an immersive installation for young children, an invitation to discover the concepts of shape, colour, space and time.

Programme: 

31 January – 18 February 2022

Mobile baby station #2

Émilie Faïf

 Travelling workshop | 0-2 years 

 

Mobile baby station #2 is a space for toddlers created by artist Émilie Faïf on the theme of the human body.

 

The space invites participants to explore their own body in its visible and non-visible aspects: parts such as the mouth and eyes come face to face with the intestines and the brain. Each element of the body is presented in a large, disproportionately sized format, becoming a subject in itself. The different parts are transformed into footstools, tents or tubes and other graphic and physical elements made of felt and other materials offering a visual and sensory experience: an exploration of materials by touch.

Station bébé mobile #1

Stéphanie Marin

 Atelier itinérant | 0–2 ans 

 

La Station bébé mobile #1 est un espace pour les tout-petits imaginé par l’artiste Stéphanie Marin autour des notions de contact et de confort. 

 

La question du confort est un atout essentiel au bien-être car il permet d’imposer un relationnel privilégié au duo parent-enfant. La station bébé mobile invite, par ses fauteuils et par le jeu, à la découverte de l’autre et des autres. Le corps de l’adulte épouse la forme de l’assise et  s’enfonce dans le maillage élastique du revêtement. Sur les genoux ou contre le corps du parent, le bébé ressent le balancement, les sautillements, les jeux d’équilibre et le flottement.

Agenda : 

30 mai – 13 juin 2022
Ludothèque Le Coffre à Jouets, Argenteuil 

 

En coproduction avec mille formes, Clermont-Ferrand

To each their own point of view
A workshop on Henri Cartier-Bresson and photography

 Travelling workshop | 3-10 years 

 

The "To each their own point of view" workshop offers a range of activities to train the eye while having fun.

 

Focusing on a detail, changing scale or point of view, closing in on a subject “on tiptoe” - in the words of French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson-, using light and shade... so many ways of savouring everyday items with your eyes and drawing in close to things.
