Writing is Drawing

published on 08.11.21

The exhibition Ecrire, c'est dessiner (Writing is Drawing), which runs until 21 February 2022 at the Centre Pompidou-Metz, was born of a conversation with the artist and poet Etel Adnan (1925) and explores writing and its signs and their proximity to the practice of drawing.

Contrasting the handwritten world with the digital world, the exhibition highlights the poetry of writing through letters and manuscripts by artists and other illustrious personalities (Arthur Rimbaud, Victor Hugo, etc.) and drawings by Etel Adnan, Pierre Alechinsky, Louise Bourgeois, etc.

Etel Adnan wants us to look at writing "like a painting in a museum".

published on 29.10.21

The French artist Boris Kurdi (1990) has won the 22nd Pernod Ricard Foundation Prize. Although his work extends to painting as well as sculpture, it is through the freedom offered by drawing that the artist expresses himself best. 

His work can be seen at the Pernod Ricard Foundation in Paris, including a large panoramic drawing.

In addition to the exhibition, the artist has been awarded a €15,000 grant to develop a project abroad, as well as the acquisition of one of his works by the Centre Pompidou.
