1) "Regards croisés" exhibition
Gérard Trignac - Giovanni Piranesi (1720-1778)
This exhibition will take place in the reception room of the Théophile de Viau space, behind the town hall of Aiguillon.
We had fun matching the works of Bordeaux artist Gérard Trignac with those of Giovanni Piranési, aka Piranèse, an 18th century Italian engraver. Gérard Trignac was greatly influenced by the latter's work, just like him, he was trained as an architect. This is the reason why, with the complicity of the city and the Gajac Museum of Villeneuve sur Lot, whom we thank, we are going to exhibit in the same room the engravings of these two Masters. The works focus mainly on the themes of imaginary architecture and fantastic landscapes. The drawings explore the same vein, plays of light and shadow are important, with a wide range of gray. There are only few human presences, sometimes only tiny figures go almost unnoticed and blend into the architectural environment. We invite you to find the similarities between these two works.
2) Exhibition of contemporary artists
17 international contemporary artists will present their works at the Dastrac Museum, rue de la République and at the Cultural Center (CAM), 1 rue de Visé. These artists were selected for their exceptional talent, many of them have worldwide fame. However, we have left space for the discovery of new talent. You will be able to discover the multiplicity of techniques. To discover the list of our exhibitors click here .
3) Partnership with the University of Fine Arts of Cusco (Peru)
For several years, we have developed a partnership with the University of Fine Arts of Cusco in Peru. Thus, you will be able to admire the engraved and very colorful works of our Peruvian friends. This partnership is also part of the South American fortnight organized in France, with the help of Josselyn Zeballos Deza, Honorary Consul of Peru in Toulouse, whom we thank. If conditions allow, a delegation, headed by the Director of the University, Carlos Aguilar Carrasco, should travel to Aiguillon.
