Being interested in all artistic fields, and from a desire to inspire and enrich interpretations of the exhibitions it offers, the CRP/ runs a cultural program linked to its annual program of exhibitions.
This is designed to cohere with the projects of invited artists and with the reflection in which they are engaged in close connection with the territory and its stories. The aim is to offer visitors a plurality of experiences that resonate with one another, implicitly sketching ways of understanding the artistic worlds presented.
“Art is a state of encounter” _ Nicolas Bourriaud
Talks / Screenings / Performances
The CRP/ regularly offers special meetings with the artists, which can assume various forms. From film screenings, to informal meetings in which everyone is free to speak, to more academic lecture formats jointly organized with universities or art schools, the CRP/ endeavors to determine the format best adapted to the artist’s world, in constant dialogue with the artist and their cultural partners.
Courses / Workshops
Throughout the year, the CRP/ programs internships, workshops or masterclasses with artists whose work it is exhibiting, or with others it wishes to support. In this context, the meeting is rooted in an exchange essentially based on practice, whether that practice be photographic, curatorial, or related more to questions of collection conservation and management.
Seminars / Lectures
Research and prospecting are fundamental missions of art centers, essential steps for identifying and supporting today’s artists. Through the works they create, these artists are engaged in constant dialogue with society and its problems. This is what leads the CRP/ to regularly enlist researchers, academics and experts to support and enrich the reflections inspired by the works of the artists it exhibits or supports.
