A Diverse Nation: The French Model of Integration

Panel Discussion: A Diverse Nation: The French Model of Integration Panel discussion with Patrick Simon, Andreas Wimmer, and Riva Kastoryano, moderated by Alexander Stille. Panelists discuss how the French model of integration is responding to the growing diversity within French society. They explore some of the findings of a new large-scale study co-authored by Patrick Simon for the INED, Trajectoires et origines, which traces the social trajectories of 1st and 2nd generation immigrants in France through their experiences with education, employment, family formation, identity formation, and experiences of discrimination. Sociologist Riva Kastoryano discusses the impact of immigrant organization and mobilization on national and group identity in France. Andreas Wimmer contributes a French-U.S. comparative perspective to questions of integration and identity within diverse societies and examines some of the tensions diversity can create.

Picasso and Abstraction: Encounters and Avoidance

With Yve-Alain Bois. Pablo Picasso did not speak often about abstraction, but when he did, it was either to dismiss it as complacent decoration or to declare its very notion an oxymoron. The root of this hostility is to be found in the impasse that the artist reached in the summer 1910, when abstraction suddenly appeared as the logical development of his previous work, a possibility at which he recoiled in horror. Yve-Alain Bois will examine several encounters, or rather false encounters, of Picasso with abstraction.

Daubigny, Monet, Van Gogh: Impressions of Landscape

Before the Impressionists, French artist Charles-François Daubigny pushed the boundaries of traditional landscape. In the 1850s and 1860s, Daubigny anticipated and helped shape Impressionism by routinely painting outdoors to capture qualities of light and atmosphere, by launching a floating studio boat on the French rivers, and by exhibiting sketch-like works that critics assailed as “mere impressions.” He became a mentor, colleague, and friend to the Impressionists, especially Claude Monet and Camille Pissarro.

International Conference on Opportunities in the Arts: Expanding Worlds

TransCultural Exchange’s 2016 International Conference on Opportunities in the Arts offers exciting possibilities for artists to embrace different cultures, mindsets and technologies. For instance, panelists will speak about their international residency programs, provide practical advice (on topics such as resources for funding and managing a studio practice), discuss how art can play a vital role in social or political interventions and promote possibilities for artists to collaborate with those in other disciplines, including medicine, architecture, conservation and engineering. Round Table discussions also will give artists with similar interests the chance to meet, network and talk about their work; and portfolio reviews with the speakers, gallery owners and critics will supply additional venues for artists to showcase their work.
