FINALLY we get to host Amy Sillman herself, in Paris, for a spectacular bilingual booklaunch of both the French version and the English one — in a new, expanded edition – of her seminal book : Faux Pas. Selected Writings and Drawings. Amy will be in conversation with the editors: Charlotte Houette, François Lancien Guilberteau, and Benjamin Thorel, and our special guest will be Matthew Lutz Kinoy.
What a line up! Not to be missed. See you soon and buy the book here ou là!
A key figure in the New York art scene, Amy Sillman is renowned for her singular approach to painting and drawing. Her writings extend a practice that challenges traditions and theoretical frameworks with criticality and humor, and advocates subjectivity: she reevaluates Abstract Expressionism with a queer eye, explores the meanings of color and shape, and discusses in depth the work of other artists—from Delacroix (and Cézanne!) to Maria Lassnig to Carolee Schneemann to Laura Owens. In Faux Pas, a collection of her essays, alongside her cartoons and original drawings, art—as personal as it is political—is a practice that responds to today’s struggles.
