ONE MINUTE IN ART
Initiated by conceptual artists Stephan Breuer and Charles de Meaux, along with Lea Marchetti, One Minute In Art (OMIA) introduces in the Etoile Cinémas’ movie theaters One Minute of Video Art before each movie, made and/or directed by a contemporary artist.
The new edition was launched on September 30 in the Cinema Etoile Saint Germain with a selection of French and international artists like Brice Dellsperger, Anthony McCall, François Curlet, Julião Sarmento or Jitish Kallat.
The OMIA program aims to pull video art out of the museums and galleries and penetrate the public space, freely offering this ‘minute’ to the audience. Each work starts its voyage in the movie theater Etoile Saint Germain for two weeks and will travels to the other movie theaters, thus offering 6 weeks of exhibition all over Paris.

PIRANESI – GROUP SHOW
The exhibition juxtaposes Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s series of prints “Carceri d’invenzione,” from ca. 1761, with Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota’s 2012 installation Stairway: a web of black threads featuring a staircase. Shiota’s heaped yarns create hatches and spaces reminiscent of etching and of Piranesi’s architectural fantasy spaces. The culture-dependent prisons of passion and nightmares exist in the artists’ imagination and incarcerate dreams and memories.

PAROLES – TALK WITH THE ARTISTS
Pierre and Gilles (born in 1950 in La Roche-sur-Yon and in 1953 in Le Havre) are once again delighting the world with their superb heroes from mythology, the Bible, or fairy tales. Since 1980 the artist couple is standing for a sophisticated portrait art, situated between photography and painting, and breathing a touch of humanity into celebrities or magnificence into ordinary people.
Inspired by the fine arts, cinema, and any kind of pop culture, the works by Pierre and Gilles are an attempt to reconcile different ages, genders and styles. Furthermore, they are justification for a fragile humanity where everyone may be an exceptional being. Directly referring to current world affairs, their works interrogate political issues through perfectly staged compositions as well as our critical thinking.

David LaChapelle and Pierre et Gilles successfully continued this flirt with pop.
The international group exhibition, curated by Nadine Barth, combines the most interesting new approaches from the field of photography, it introduces new and familiar names and carries us off to a sweet, surreal, glittering and incredibly fresh cosmos.

FROM HERE TO ETERNITY – GROUP SHOW
From “Where do we come from?” to “Where are we going?” From beginning to end, from origins to eternity, such is the guiding theme and framework of the exhibition, From here to eternity. In his works, guest artist Angelo Musco tirelessly explores the cycles of existence: birth—a recurrent theme in his work; origins and evolution ; the metamorphoses of the human being and nature; mystery; and abysses.
Accompanying Angelo Musco on his journey are works, among others from Chiharu Shiota and Ivan Navarro, that encounter his, engaging in a dialogue and free falling weightlessly into an open space with no beginning or end. Existence can therfore be the intertwining of connections and relationships, sometimes due to chance, other times intentional, like the threads that are woven and (out)stretched, as in the work by Chiaru Shiota.

STIGMATA, ACTIONS & PERFORMANCES 1976–2013 – SOLO SHOW
In 2016, ‘Stigmata’ presents the totality of Jan Fabre’s actions and performances since 1976. A journey around the memory of Jan Fabre, involving 40 years of creation, it has the merit of interrogating, not the action or the performance, but the way to exhibit it, the way to present it.
The mise en scene by Jan Fabre and Germano Celant, an overview of all performances and actions, gathers 87 glass trays, 800 objects, drawings, photographs, artefacts, costumes, models which he calls “thought models”, films, works in blue ballpoint pen, and more.
THURSDAY 29 SEPTEMBER 2016, 6 PM : NEW PERFORMANCE WITH EDDY MERCKX AND RAYMOND POULIDOR
“An attempt to not beat the world hour record set by Eddy Merckx in Mexico City in 1972 (or how to remain a dwarf in a land of giants)”, created for Lyon at the Parc de la Tête d’Or velodrome, with commentary and live filming, in the presence of Eddy Merckx.
Jan Fabre pays tribute to the Belgian cyclist. The artist grabs the handlebars and thrusts his feet into the toe clips in an attempt not to beat the world record set in Mexico City in 1972. In a salute to the talent of the man they called “The Cannibal” because of his insatiable hunger after victories, Jan Fabre allows himself to be caught up and swallowed by the beauty of failure.

GREGORY CREWDSON IN CONVERSATION WITH THE ART HISTORIAN MICHEL POIVERT
On the occasion of the two concurrently exhibitions « Cathedral of the Pines » at Galerie Daniel Templon in Paris and Brussels, the American artist Gregory Crewdson is presenting his most recent body of work in a talk with Michel Poivert, art historian specialized in photography.
In images that recall nineteenth-century painting, Crewdson captures motionless figures in both natural environments and domestic interiors, charged with ambiguity. Ever since his nocturnal Twilight series (1998–2002), Crewdson has worked with a full crew, planning his elaborately staged images in a process similar to that of a movie director. His use of the codes governing the cinema of fantasy films, psychological drama and suspense conjures forebears such as Diane Arbus, Alfred Hitchcock and Edward Hopper.
These new works were shot on location in Becket, Massachusetts, where Crewdson retreated, in search of inspiration. ‘It was deep in the forests of Becket, Massachusetts that I finally felt darkness lift, experienced a reconnection with my artistic process, and moved into a period of renewal and intense creative productivity,’ he explains.
