Marie-Agnès Gillot

Artists Marie-Agnès Gillot, photographed by Koto Bolofo for Numéro, was in the spotlight for the exhibition dedicated to her at the Studio des Acacias. 
 
She joined the corps de ballet de l'Opéra de Paris in 1989. Promoted to subject in 1994, she played wonderful roles in works by Carlson, Nureyev, Nijinsky or Belarbi and received the AROP prize in 1998 before becoming a principal dancer in 1999. In 2004, she was named Etoile following the performance of Carolyn Carlson's "Signs" and became the first dancer to be named after a contemporary work. Since then, she has put her virtuoso technique at the service of all the greatest ballet roles given at the Paris Opera, both in the classical and contemporary repertoire. At the same time, Marie-Agnès embarked on choreographic work in 2007 with a piece mixing classical and hip-hop dancers and has since continued to create.
 
In March 2017 Marie-Agnès Gillot bids farewell to the stage at the Palais Garnier to a ballet by Pina Bausch "Orphée et Eurydice". She has a taste for eclecticism in choreography and never hesitates to cross the boundaries of genres: from clips to films, from conceptual works to cinema.

Rashid Johnson

Rashid Johnson

Artists Rashid Johnson exposed New American Art with Matthew Day Jackson during FIAC 2015 at the Studio des Acacias.
 
A major contributor to the rise of African-American artists in contemporary art today, Rashid Johnson is constantly interested in the cultural phenomena (from jazz to hip hop to Mohammed Ali) that have shaped his community. While his videos, photographs, sculptures, paintings, sculptures and installations question the diversity of African-American identity, they often have their origins in the artist's personal history or the 1970s when he was born. 
 
Born in 1977, Rashid Johnson took his first steps in photography in 1996 before turning to a multi-media artistic practice. After studying at the Art Institute in Chicago, he moved to New York City where he was noticed by critics and the greatest art collectors. His exhibitions toured the world, from the Miami Art Museum to the Hauser & Wirth galleries in Zurich and London, as well as Greece, Italy and Germany.     > DISCOVER THE EXHIBITION

Matthew Day Jackson

Matthew Day Jackson

Matthew Day Jackson

Artists The Studio des Acacias invited Matthew Day Jackson, along with Rashid Johnson, for the exhibition New American Art, for FIAC 2015.   Considered one of the most talented American artists of his generation, Matthew Day Jackson is obsessed with the notions of danger and destruction related to all human lives and productions, from machines to new technologies. With his concept of'Horrorful', he tries to express both the beauty and horror that can result from it.   His work - marked by the figure of the skull and a passion for car racing - engages in a meditation on existence, infinity and death. Matthew Day Jackson was born in 1974 in California. He now lives and works in Brooklyn, and has already been presented at the Whitney Museum, the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in New York, the Saatchi Gallery in London and the Palazzo Grassi in Venice.    > DISCOVER THE EXHIBITION

Mark Handforth

Artists In October 2014, Mark Handforth inaugurated the Studio des Acacias with new works specially designed for the occasion. 
 
Mark Handforth is a British artist born in Hong Kong and has lived in Miami for over 20 years. He is a graduate of the Frankfurt Academy of Fine Arts and the Slade School of Fine Art in London. It is acclaimed worldwide for its installations in public spaces. His monumental sculptures have been regularly presented in the United States, Central Park in New York, the Dallas Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago (MCA). 
 
A worthy heir to Pop Art, he is known for his sculptures that divert objects from everyday life and urban furniture. Benches, streetlights, signboards, vespas are thus re-presented, extracted from their original context and re-injected in a playful way into exhibition spaces or public spaces. Light is omnipresent in his work. Fluorescent light, candle light, city light. In his works, luminous tubes become eclipses (Eclipse, 2003) or rising suns (Rising Sun, 2003) and urban furniture/lighting is folded, turned upside down and abused not without humour.     > DISCOVER THE EXHIBITION
