Art by Translation

Direction: Maud Jacquin and Sébastien Pluot
Pedagogical direction: Jeff Guess

Art by Translation is a research and exhibition program initiated by École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts de Paris-Cergy and École Supérieure des Beaux Arts TALM Angers. It is supported by the French Ministry of Culture and collaborates with a host of international academic and art institutions.

Organized in sessions dedicated to specific research themes, this itinerant program takes place at different sites in Europe and North America and develops artistic and curatorial projects, discursive events and publications in collaboration with museums, art schools and universities. In each context, research is enriched by the contributions of international artists, lecturers, doctoral and master’s students from different disciplines.

Art by Translation is a postgraduate program that involves 4 selected artists and curators each year. They attend the program in its different international contexts. They contribute to the research, participate in seminars and workshops with students from the host cities and produce new works presented in the various Art by Translation exhibitions and events.

Each session’s research focus is defined in such a way as to be disseminated across various disciplinary contexts (fine arts, dance, film, writing, art history and theory, architecture, design). For this first session, the research focuses on the processes and ideological stakes of translation in the arts. The research subjects for following years are defined as extensions or outgrowths of previously developed issues.
