Here we are finally, The special edition of the Art Rivera Tour exhibits the works of its artists in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. This exhibition could not have taken place without the renewed confidence of the Mayor, Jean-François Dieterich and the one of our partners and artists.
This year has been difficult in many ways. It is with great sadness that one of our artists, Pierre-Henri Goralski, passed away in 2020. The world of Art loses with him a very great artist who through his artworks sought the light in connection with matter and abstraction to welcome the vibrations of the world. It was important for us to continue to inform you regularly. We were able to maintain the 1st edition of the Art Riviera Tour which was held at the hotel de Paris in Saint-Tropez in September 2020. Without forgetting this 2021 edition, may be less international than in previous years due to the difficulties of traveling, but nevertheless remains a great vintage with inspiring contemporary artworks of high quality.
And as André Rouillé points out “the notion of ‘contemporary’ is not entirely temporal and successive. The ‘contemporary’ is not the present, it does not designate the sum of everything that is located and is done in a temporal sequence between past and future… The contemporary artist is therefore the one who knows how to express some of the driving forces of his time through the arrangement of forms, materials, know-how, temporalities and aesthetic protocols of his works.”
And may Art takes back its place in our lives and leave an indelible mark in time.
