Drawing and the Performing arts: gesture and space – DAY 1
21 March 2018 14:30
Petit auditorium – Palais Brongniart – Paris
The salon du dessin which has organized an international symposium every year around a theme since 2006, has decided to focus on the performing arts for two consecutive years, 2018 and 2019.
The aim is to reflect on the specificity of the ephemeral practice that is performance: drawing as memory and/or the visual record of practices and habits of the stage, or more generally of the performance and theatrical life, such as set designs, architectural plans, portraits of actors, singers and dancers, sketches of stages, studies and a few rare drawings evoking music.
