A conference by Anne Niéres is offered on Saturday 11 September for the start of the Art in Discovery association, on Jackson Pollock.

Jackson Pollock, born 28 January 1912 in Cody, Wyoming, and died 11 August 1956 in Springs, New York, is an American painter of abstract expressionism, world famous during his lifetime.

Jackson Pollock has produced more than 700 works, completed paintings, painted or sculpted essays and drawings as well as some engravings.

He had a decisive influence on the course of contemporary art.

The practice of all-over as well as the dripping, which he used extensively from 1947 to 1950, made him famous thanks to the photos and films of Hans Namuth, made more or less in the heat of the moment.

Its recognition coincided with the emergence of New York as the new world capital of culture, shortly after World War II, between 1948 and 1950. Pollock was the first of the third wave of American abstract artists to finally gain recognition, the first to open up a path through the collectors world to other artists of the New York School.

Wearing a mask to attend the conference is mandatory. It will be given by Anne Niéres.

The traditional welcome drink is still suspended because of the sanitary instructions.

This Saturday September 11, at 2 hours, at the congress hall (town hall). Members : 5 €, non-members : 8 €.
