On the occasion of the Farid Belkahia exhibition "For another modernity", which is held at the Centre Pompidou in Paris from 19 May to 31 July 2021, Michel Gauthier, its curator, will take us on a virtual tour as a preamble to our discussion.

This conversation will be an opportunity to discuss the emergence of postcolonial modernity in the Maghreb through one of its most emblematic creators and question its inclusion in the grand narrative of modernity, which is what many museums and art historians are working on today.

Moderator :

Meryem Sebti, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the art magazine DIPTYK, Casablanca

Speakers :

Michel Gauthier, Curator at the National Museum of Modern Art-Centre Pompidou, Paris

Brahim Alaoui, art historian, former director of the museum of the Arab World Institute, Paris

This exchange will address two crucial issues faced by visual artists: their mobility and visibility.
Which platforms have been set up to help visual artists to find residencies, studios and exhibit?
How such platform can activate their different networks so that artists can exchange, exist and connect both within Lebanon and abroad.

This conversation will also evoke the practical aspects which map the access to an artistic ecosystem, both locally and internationally, such as awards, getting a visa, and access to housing. While artists need to travel, they also need to receive support to exist in their own country.

Through this conversation, we will discover the different actors who work to offer this support to artists.

Moderator :

Maria Chatti-Gautier, a finance professional who has devoted a lot of time and energy to humanitarian and social missions in Lebanon and Syria.

Speakers :

Sandra Hegedüs, founder of SAM Art Projects
Joana Hadjithomas, visual artist,
Tarik Atoui, Lebanese artist and musician
Joana Hadjithomas and Tarik Atoui are the founders of "Correspondences", a platform of support for Lebanese artists.
Marie Buscail, Counsellor for Cooperation and Cultural Action, Director of the French Institute of Lebanon.
