September Agenda au Pays du Mont-Blanc

September is la Rentrée, a new rhythm after the summer, the start of falling autumn leaves and shorter days . . . and perhaps the month to think about the little ones’ extra-curricular activities (oof!), or even our own!  And it is still a perfect month to explore our wondrous nature, the lakes and mountains au Pays du Mont-Blanc or to go apple picking . . . many of the parks are still open, before they hibernate over the winter season and perhaps get a dusting of snow!

Do keep checking the listings over the month, as I shall update it with any new information that comes my way! And please feel free to send me any information for family/children’s events and activities that you are organising – or that you know of – that are missing from the list!

At the bottom of the agenda, you will find a list of:

  • on-going and new exhibitions;
  • parks that are currently open au Pays du Mont-Blanc;
  • farms to visit en-famille;
  • and weekly markets.

*DISCLAIMER: PLEASE confirm details of events on relevant websites/FB pages or give the museums/events a call, before planning a visit!  This list has been compiled in advance, and events sometimes cancel due to bad weather, low numbers signed up and other factors! *

from Saturday 16th September to 22nd December – temporary exhibition: «Réparer la vision» by Danilo DueñasVilla du Parc Centre d’Art Contemporain – Annemasse – “La Villa du Parc Centre d’art Contemporain d’Annemasse présente la première exposition personnelle en France de Danilo Dueñas, artiste incontournable de la scène de l’art contemporain en Colombie depuis trois décennies. Intitulée « Réparer la Vision », l’exposition est entièrement pensée et produite pour les espaces de la Villa du Parc et le contexte français, mêlant des objets à forte connotation culturelle et des matériaux de récupération trouvés depuis la position géographique et institutionnelle propre au centre d’art.  L’art de Danilo Dueñas est habité par la forte empathie de l’artiste avec le monde autour de lui. Objets regardés, trouvés, récupérés, assemblés sont la base d’une pratique aux formes multiples, picturale, sculpturale et installative. La prise en compte du contexte architectural et de l’exposition comme œuvre s’est imposée progressivement, à mesure que Danilo Dueñas élargissait les conditions de visibilité, d’interaction et d’équilibre entre ses œuvres. «Réparer la vision», telle est l’intention revendiquée pour cette exposition à la Villa du Parc: “La vision qui essaie d’être vigilante avant la destruction. L’avant est le nôtre, c’est la possibilité du monde, que nous devons nourrir et ravitailler en tenant compte de la couleur, de la sédimentation, du temps dans le regard”.  Danilo Dueñas est né en 1956 à Cali ; il vit et travaille à Bogotá. Il développe depuis les années 1980 un travail pictural et d’assemblage sculptural à partir de matériaux de récupération, et s’inscrit dans une histoire artistique de la sculpture à partir de matériaux de l’environnement immédiat. Bien présenté en Amérique latine et aux Etats-Unis, Danilo Dueñas a également régulièrement exposé en Allemagne où il a été artiste invité par la DAAD galerie en 2011. Son travail a été exposé dans les plus importantes institutions artistiques de Colombie où il est professeur à l’Université de los Andes de Bogotá. Il est représenté par les galeries Casas Riegner à Bogotá et Thomas Schulte à Berlin. L’exposition Réparer la vision est organisée dans le cadre de l’Année France-Colombie 2017 par le Ministère de l’Europe et des Affaires étrangères, le Ministère de la Culture, le Gouvernement de Colombie et le Ministère de la Culture colombien ainsi que l’Institut Français. La Villa du Parc remercie la galerie Thomas Schulte à Berlin et le Fonds cantonal d’art contemporain de Genève.” / address: 12 rue de Genève, Parc Montessuit, 74100, Annemasse;
