IMPRÉVUS 2018 : DIGITAL BODY 1
AIMS Within the framework of the Imprévus, the students are to prepare a show that gathers dancers, performers and interactive devices in a same space. METHOD The research led by the students from the Pavillon Bosio, the students from the Creation and management of Digital Picture department of the Aix-Marseille University, along with certain students from Maastricht will be applied within practical workshops. The students will also collaborate with the choreographer-dancers from the Ballets de Monte-Carlo Dance company. CONTENT The elaborated projects and the interactive principles developed and tested during workshops at the Princesse Grace theater will give its shape to each show project. It encompasses an artistic and technical collaboration with the choreographers, the students from the Aix-Marseille University and the stage professionals, in the perspective of a public presentation during the Imprévus shows of 2018. All the techniques specific to live performance will be broached (machinery, lights, sound, costumes…) whether in solo or within groups.
PHOTOGRAPHY – 2nd year -02/ 2018
The 250th anniversary of the birth of François-Joseph Bosio
AIMS : By confronting the work of François-Joseph Bosio and contemporary photography, the students make staged photographs in the perspective of an exhibition in the cityscape of Monaco. METHOD : Divided in 3 or 4 groups, the students will make series of photographs based on given themes. The latter concern the artist as a person, his work, the 19th century period and the model. Alongside, as the students make the pictures they will explore plastic choices concerning the staging, the set, and the techniques of studio portraiture. CONTENT : Depending on the themes they broach, the students will have to mark and choose existing elements for their sets such as the museum, including its exhibition space and its stock, and the urban space. They will make photographic backdrops (paintings, drawings, photographs) for their studio shooting. They will propose an answer related to the sculptural work of François-Joseph Bosio regarding the questions of the costume, the accessory and the posture of the bodies. The realisation of these projects will be fostered by a work on lighting and shooting techniques. Finally, with the outcome of an exhibition, they will work on the choices and editing of pictures.
VILLA ARSON – 1rst year – 04/2018

The workshop takes place in the silkscreen-printing workshop of the Ensa- Valla Arson. After the preparation work made during studios at the ESAP, it will learn the steps, methods and vocabulary related to offset and silkscreen printing : ink, emulsion, mesh, template, lining up.
FJB On The Rock
Celebration of François-Joseph Bosio’s 250th birthday
On the occasion of the 250th birthday of François-Joseph Bosio, the 2nd year students have lead a reflection upon the sculptor’s work. A dialog was set between this self-taught artist, who is among the most gifted representatives of the neo-classical aesthetic, and the young creators of art school. The stagings that were invented for this homage have integrated the etchings and paintings of one of his peer, Jean-François Bosio, brother of the artist. By diving into the question of the body’s posture, costumes and props, the photographs, made in the Théâtre Princesse Grace, not only emphasize the visual impact of an 18th century work, but also shift it within a contemporary artistic context. The pictures will be visible from April 20 2018, during a photographic walk along the Avenue Saint-Martin in Monaco. Special thanks to : Direction des Affaires Culturelles, Théâtre Princesse Grace, Nouveau Musée National de Monaco.

CONFERENCE – Géraldine GOURBE – 2018
Since the exhibition « Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980" (2011-2012), which celebrated the artistic scene of Los Angeles, the work of Judy Gerowitz, who became Judy Chicago in 1970, is regularly presented to the public. In 2013, the panorama exhibition of the Getty Museum "Overdrive: L.A. Constructs the Future, 1940-1990" presented these works parsimoniously. At the same moment, the Pomona College Museum of Art presented several of her unknown works. Curators Rebecca McGrew and Glenn Philips had gathered around Hal Gliksman (one of the first directors of the Pomona College Museum of Art, committed to the Light and Space movement) the works of Michael Asher, Ron Cooper, James Turell, Lloyd Hamrol, Robert Irwin… and more surprisingly, Judy Gerowitz/Judy Chicago. These works by Judy Gerowitz, which have long remained in the shadow of the Woman House education program or of the collaborative piece Dinner Party by Judy Chicago, ask a question : what status do they belong to today ? Géraldine Gourbe is a searcher in aesthetics, specialized in the question of performance, of collectives and of feminism. Since 2007, she has published works on the artistic scene of Los Angeles, on radical education and on artistic communities. For 2018, she is preparing a re-examination of California minimalism partly from Judy Chicago’s sculpture work of the 60’s
