The Expo WOORD counts one work less for a few days. The work Sink Hole by Alain Arias-Misson will be briefly borrowed on 17 and 18 September for the two-day symposium “Eroticism, Poetic Concretism, and Visuality (1960-1970)” in Centre Pompidou, Paris.

The international symposium is organized by Maria Elena Minuto (KU Leuven) and Mica Gherghescu (Bibliothèque Kandinsky – Centre Pompidou). Among those involved are Johan Pas (KASK Antwerp), with whom Coppejans Gallery collaborated around 100 years of Beuys, and Jan De Vree , who from the M HKA was the initiator of the Public Poem that Alain Arias-Misson performed during the opening weekend of WOORD in Antwerp.

The work on loan is shown on the picture and dates from 1970. The artist’s work, and especially his public poems, will be discussed at the symposium. The artist himself will also speak to the public. The symposium can be followed live. Click here for the link.
