Marie Canet

Past: Saturday, March 7, 2015 4 PM → 6 PM

Bruno Pélassy was a protean artist, draftsman, sculptor, and fashion designer. In her essay on Pélassy and his work, the art historian and creator of film programs Marie Canet looks back over the artist’s connection with disease, taking as her starting point the only video he created, in 1995, which she proposes to read like a text. The piece, intimate, unstable and joyous, demonstrates the power of artmaking when it begins to move in unison with a political, social, and scientific context in crisis.
