Mood Swings

Lecture in French

What happens when we cross the threshold of a museum or gallery to discover works of art? I should rather say, to encounter art exhibitions whose design and layout have been entrusted to curators, but also to scenographers specialising in atmospheres or ambiences, when it is not, as we see more and more often, artists wishing to sign their own creative work?

To what extent are we sensitive to the emotional tone that emanates from a place, and therefore ready to choose it or, on the contrary, to turn away from it and cut short our visit? And at what point does the question arise for us, visitors who have come to the exhibition of our own free will, and who are by definition available, as to how the atmosphere in which we are immersed is 'made', and what effects it may have on our behaviour? This is what I will attempt to answer, drawing on a conceptual apparatus specific to aesthetic philosophy (Gernot Böhme, Bruce Bégout, Yves Michaud, etc.). 

Ondine Bréaud-Holland holds a doctorate in art and art sciences and teaches aesthetic philosophy and art theory at the École supérieure d'Arts plastiques in Monaco. She has been in charge of the scientific coordination of several conferences on art and scenography (Pavillon magazine) and has edited an issue of the new Revue d'Esthétique (No. 20, PUF, 2017) devoted entirely to this subject. Interested in the relationship between art and life, she has published in Figures de l'art, Noesis and other research media.
She is also a full member of the Centre de Recherches en Histoire des Idées (CRHI) at the Université Côte d'Azur, where she has organised a conference on Clément Rosset (2019). Finally, as a close friend of contemporary artists (Frédérique Nalbandian, Daphné Corregan, Amandine Maillot, etc.), she regularly produces critical texts on their work.  

This programme of lectures is a co-production of UCArts - Direction de la Culture d'Université Côte d'Azur and the National Museums of the 20th Century in the Alpes-Maritimes. The six conferences are organised in partnership with the Association of the Friends of the Marc Chagall National Museum

The programme has been put together by the museum in collaboration with Josiane Rieu, professor of 16th-century French literature at the Université Côte d'Azur and member of the CTEL, Centre Transdisciplinaires d'Epistémologie de la Littérature et des Arts Vivants.
