de Vabres et la culture
the Fiac, the Minister for the Culture reaffirms his engagements for
the contemporary creation.
It is currently a much question of
contemporary art, inside the living rooms of the Palais Royal.
Yesterday, the Minister for the Culture, Renaud Donnedieu de Vabres,
took advantage from the occasion to point out a certain number of
engagements of the State. The Palais Royal is once more the joker of
the minister who envisages the great public demonstrations there to
come. Thus, as of the next year, the building will accommodate an
exhibition devoted to the German artist Anselm Kiefer before Richard
Serra in 2008 and Christian Boltanski in 2009.
2009 will see also the second edition
of the great exhibition “La force de l'art” whose two next responsable
were named. It is about Marie Claude Beaud, director of the new Museum
of modern art Jean large-duke in Luxembourg, and of Didier Ottinger,
conservative with the Museum of modern art of the Pompidou Center,
which will work with the architect scenographer Jean-Louis Froment.
Donnedieu de Vabres also recalled the creation of a “European center of
creation” on the Seguin island in Boulogne-Billancourt close to Paris.
The idea to build equipment of this type on the old stronghold of
Renault had been put forward at the time of the preceding edition of
Fiac in 2005 and had been confirmed last May. It is concretized today
with the launching of an association of prefiguration chaired by the
adviser of State Daniel Janicot, former sub-manager general of UNESCO.
The State will be implied with height of 50 million euros is half of
the estimated budget, also financed by the town of Boulogne and the
council general of the Top-of-Seine.
In addition, the next year will see
the reopening of the gallery of the Goblins in Paris manufacture.
Closed since thirty years, this building built by Jean-Camille
Formigé at the beginning of the XIX E century will shelter a
place of exposure devoted to the creation and the trades of art.
In province, the financial effort of
the State relates mainly to the opening of centers of diffusion like
the Funds regional of contemporary art (Frac) in Brittany to Rennes
(opening envisaged in 2008), the Frac-Center, of which the architects
Domenica Jakob and Brendan McFarlane have been just named (opening
envisaged in 2009), or the Consortium in Dijon (opening envisaged in
Works would have, they also, to make
the voyage Paris province. “The State opens its trunks”, underlined the
minister by specifying in particular that works of art pertaining to
the Funds national of contemporary art (Fnac) will be transferred to
twelve museums from area.
