We are honored to announce that this season will be opened by Mr Pierre Rouillard, Emeritus Research Director at the CNRS (the French National Centre for Scientific Research), Director of Maison René-Ginouvès, Archaeology and Ethnology, Nanterre, USR 3225 (2000-2012) and Scientific and Technical Manager of the labex "The past in the present".
Mr. Rouillard's presentation will also be an opportunity to pay homage to Picasso who lived in Mougins during the last 12 years of his life:
PICASSO AND HIS 'TASTE FOR THE OTHERS':
THE "DEMOISELLES D'AVIGNON" BETWEEN SPAIN AND AFRICA
The link that Picasso himself established between Iberian sculptures and "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon" has been a widely accepted position as well as a point of debate since the late 1930s. It is important to talk about the people Picasso met, the moments they shared, the intellectual climate in the years 1900-1907, because this subject is strongly intertwined with his "encounter" with African art.
The Mercredis@MACM are monthly conferences to which we invite speakers to share with us on an array of themes attractive to all and linked to the collection on display in the Mougins museum.
Always in a friendly atmosphere, the presentations take place in the Egyptian crypt and are followed by a drinks reception at the museum.
Price: 10 € and 8 € for the Friends of the MACM
Please note the conferences are in french
