Régis Michel is a Chief Curator at the Musée du Louvre, where he organized a series of exhibitions called Parti pris, with guest curators such as Jacques Derrida, Jean Starobinski, and Julia Kristeva. Among various exhibitions, publications, and symposiums, mostly devoted to the archaeology of modernity, he has curated at the Louvre Posséder et détruire (on sexuality) and La peinture comme crime (on rationality), both intended as a cultural and critical anthropology of Western representation. Michel recently presented a large exhibition at the Casino Luxembourg-Forum d’Art Contemporain, L’oeil-écran ou la nouvelle images: 100 vidéos pour repenser le monde, which featured contemporary video art and owes much to late Deleuze.
This series is organized in conjunction with the Critical and Curatorial Studies Program by the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, the Department of Art History, Visual Art & Theory, and the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia, with the support of Green College.
Stéphane Martin’s talk is co-sponsored by The Canadian Museums Association and by the Consulat Général de France à Vancouver. Régis Michel’s talk is co-sponsored by the Vancouver Art Gallery, UBC Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory Graduate Symposium, and the Consulat Général de France à Vancouver.
