Research Seminar on Arts & Performance

Under the direction of Julien Clément, Jessica De Largy Healy and Frédéric Keck

Presentation

Each year, the Research and Education department organises a multi-disciplinary research seminar dedicated to artistic and performance practices. The musée du Quai Branly "Art and Performance" research seminar takes place on at flexible intervals and is centred on discussion of the work presented by guest researchers, research members of the Groupement de Recherche International (GDRI) and the holders of doctoral and post-doctoral grants financed by the museum. This is closed to the public in order to guarantee the quality of the debates among invited guest specialists. However, those interested in participating in a particular session may request authorisation to attend from the team organising the event (lbr(at)quaibranly.fr).

Each two-hour session is dedicated to work and research carried out by a museum researcher/conservator, the holder of a doctoral/post-doctoral grant, a guest researcher or a research member of the GDRI.

This work and research must be the subject of a forthcoming publication in a national or international review in the form of an article that will be submitted to an editorial committee.

The text presented is disseminated for reading among the participants in the seminar one week before the event.

The short recapitulation by the author of the main points of their text (30 minutes) is followed by a debate and critique session (1.5 hours) in French, English and Spanish (if necessary), under the direction of the guest president of the session (chair).

Each researcher presenting their work has the possibility to invite doctoral or post-doctoral students, teachers and researchers from outside the museum with a direct link to the subject examined in the text. One or two European specialists are thus invited and accommodated at the museum's expense to preside over the session and to discuss the text in question. All guest participants are then invited to the staff restaurant following the seminar to continue the discussion in a more informal manner.
