The PULSIONS festival, organized by Kalie Granier and supported by the Alliance Française of Silicon Valley, the cultural services of the Embassy of France in the United States, the Museum of Art and History of Santa Cruz, 836M and the Pro Arts gallery, first opened at Gallery 836M mid-February 2019.
The exhibition will be presented at the Museum of Art and History of Santa Cruz from March 12th to 17th, 2019.
Finally from October 4th to November 1st, 2019, the works will be visible at the Pro Arts Gallery in Oakland.
A juxtaposition of young talents and established artists, the exhibition highlights the vitality of the French artistic scene.
On display, Tania Mouraud, Smith, Kalie Granier, Justine Emard, Fenx, Michel Eric, Delphine Diallo, and Anne-Charlotte Finel.
All the artists played the game of exchange and meetings to celebrate the dialogue between France and California in this first edition of the Festival Pulsions.
Zoom on the work of Delphine Diallo
Check the interview of Delphine Diallo, in French. You will discover an artist committed to women in general but more specifically on the condition of African women. She also tells us about her mentor, Peter Beard.
Zoom on the news of Tania Mouraud
We have been lucky enough to meet with Tania Mouraud; her news goes beyond the exhibition since she released a book on March 8th, 2019, obvious related to the International Women’s Day.
This unusual artist normally paints in large, very large format. In the Pulsions exhibition, you will see a format of more than 2 meters high but know that she also
paints building facades, billboards in 4 x 3 or museum walls when she exposes at the Pompidou Museum of Metz.
Tania Mouraud has therefore accustomed its audience to writing but not on a sheet of paper.
She shared with us her latest intimate work that appeared in the form of a book called FlashS ‘. It is a kind of long poem that runs on almost 150 pages and we have great pleasure to browse although it is mainly about pain. She evokes indeed death, mother, childhood, war then travel and always and again, the pain but the writing is really striking and we can not help leafing through. It can be ordered in France at Street visconti Editions
From October 4th to November 1st 2019: Pro Arts Gallery & COMMONS 150 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza, Oakland
