Circuits Céramiques — La scène française contemporaine
La scène française contemporaine
Past: September 17, 2010 → February 20, 2011
Tracking the new possibilities offered by ceramics in the fine arts, design and craftsmanship, The Contemporary French Ceramic Scene at Les Arts Décoratifs is both an exhibition and an itinerary. Young talents never previously shown in a museum, and established artists sculpting in ceramics for several years have been brought together to illustrate the exhibition’s three themes: “The body and its metaphors”, “An imaginary landscape” and “The object revisited as decoration”. The project takes the form of an itinerary of contemporary ceramic sculptures and installations incorporated into the museum’s permanent collections.
