PROGRAM


CONVERSATION PIECE I

“Conversation Piece I”, a public program of discursive events to take place within Paris Internationale was conceived and coordinated by The Performance Agency, a Berlin based platform founded in 2017 with the aim of investigating genre-crossing possibilities and bringing together personalities from different fields to enact new performative happenings.

For the 4th edition of the fair, The Performance Agency brings the magnified skirt of Marie Antoinettento Paris. Created by Maria Loboda as a stage, changing room and hideaway for participants of the performance festival Mass X in Berlin — in collaboration with Archivio Conz and Supportico Lopez — the structure of the ballgown now functions as a public pavilion for a series of private conversations to take place under the skirt, in the comfort and privacy of the Boudoir: The Performance Agency invites the audience to meet and hold one-on-one conversations with a series of experts across the fields of art, politics, performance, medicine, diplomacy, journalism, technology and finance, as a testament to the conversation’s deep and singular transformational potential.

“Conversation Piece I” is open between Thursday 18 and Sunday 21, from 3pm until 8pm. The entire program is taking place on the ground floor.

Paris Internationale is inaugurating Daily Dérives, a new program of conversations which will take form as commentated visits of this 4th edition lead by a pair of key figures. As they progress through the four floors of the venue, artists, curators, critics, teachers, collectors (sometimes all of the above) will exchange about the artworks on view in a flâneur spirit. Truthful to the Situationist meaning of the dérive, we encourage the expression of personal points of view and hope for an intimate experience for individuals who “let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the encounters they found there” (Guy Debord).

Participants include:
Natalie Bell (Associate Curator, New Museum, New York), Diana Campbell Betancourt (Artistic Director, Samdani Art Foundation and Chief Curator, Dhaka Art Summit), Julien Fronsacq (Chief Curator, MAMCO, Genève), Joseph Kouli (Collector), Yung Ma (Curator, Centre Pompidou), Sébastien Peyret (Collector) and more.
