    A film on the birth of the Pinault Collection's “Bourse de Commerce” museum in Paris – a major place dedicated to contemporary creation.

    After five years of extraordinary renovation and construction work by Tadao Ando – one of today's greatest architects – François Pinault is preparing “Ouverture”, the museum's inaugural exhibition. This was an artistic and personal challenge for Pinault, a passionate collector and businessman at the height of his power, a billionaire and a non-conformist, as he defines himself.

    What is called "art brut" seems to fascinate the entire art world today, from museums to auction houses. It is being exhibited and sold at increasingly higher prices, and attracts an increasingly wider audience.
     
     

    Defined by Jean Dubuffet in 1945 as the art of self-taught artists freed from artistic culture, Art brut preaches the formation of new languages, inventions and techniques.
    But what is exactly this Art Brut? Who are its authors? Why are their works suddenly so successful, and why do they affect us so deeply?

  • CHINA, ONE MILLION ARTISTS

    China has been the biggest art seller in the entire world since 2012. Yet they remain relatively unknown compared to these numbers. Who are these artists? What drives them and how do they circumvent censorship?

    China has been the biggest art seller in the entire world since 2012. Yet they remain relatively unknown compared to these numbers. Who are these artists? What drives them and how do they circumvent censorship?

    Contemporary Chinese art took off spectacularly after Mao’s death. Artists have revisited Western art and some have hijacked Communist propaganda, supplementing it with a vitriolic critic of Western consumerism currently sweeping the country. Art is well placed to observe the excesses of Chinese society and it has become the flag bearer for aspirations to freedom. These contemporary works symbolize people’s wounds and hardships, as well as state violence.
    Although two artists – Basquiat and Koons – account for 50% of the American market, China has placed 47 artists in the top 100 – nearly half of them are newcomers.
    Through personal encounters with the most original and avant-garde artists – in their workshops or during performances – this film sets out to understand their work and what motivates them as well as their fight against censorship.

  • THE BACKSIDE OF BUTTOCKS

    A documentary that zooms in on the most beautiful buttocks in the history of art : buttocks. What exactly are they for? What looks and what desires do they arouse? How do they cross eras and cultures?

    This entertaining and accomplished analysis, which is the fruit of a meeting between two art lovers, Caroline Pochon and Allan Rothschild, takes on the subject of that fleshy part of our anatomy, without becoming lurid. From the Louvre Museum to the street, from cinema to designers' workshops, via advertising clichés, the portrayal of buttocks brings out collective fantasies, and reveals a great deal about the foundations (in both a literal and figurative sense) of our society, its taboos, and its desires.

    Painted in 1942 by American artist Edward Hopper, "Nighthawks" has become a symbol of American culture through the many reproductions and representations it has inspired, particularly in film.

    This documentary reveals the keys to understanding the work, by re-establishing it in its social and cultural context, and bears witness to Hopper's fierce independence as a painter well aware of the artistic stakes of his time, split between realism and abstraction.

    This is the first film to relate the history of that unconventional family. It highlights the Steins' contribution to modern art.

    American of German origin, the Steins settled in Paris at the start of the 20th century. Gertrude, an avant-garde writer and her brother Leo lived on rue de Fleurus, and Michael, their elder brother and his wife Sarah lived on rue Madame.

    The Steins were the first to buy works by Matisse and Picasso. They opened up their homes to the entire artistic avant-garde movement and built up one of the most outstanding modern art collections.

    This is the first film to relate the history of that unconventional family. It highlights the Steins' contribution to modern art, covering Leo's perspective on the sources of modernity, Gertrude's friendship with Picasso, Sarah and Michael's links to Matisse, and the projects Gertrude launched in the 1920s and 30s with artists such as Picasso, Gris, Masson and Picabia.

    A multicultural magician, an aesthetic perfectionist, and an engineer of the impossible, sculptor Anish Kapoor thrives on new artistic and technical challenges, such as his enormous inflatable structure with which he took over the Grand Palais in Paris at the Monumenta 2011 exhibition.

    Kapoor, who was born in India but has lived in England since the 1970s, is an enchanting artist - his enormous mirrors capture the clouds, his pigment miniatures are sculptures of monochrome colour, and his wall hangings pull us into a sublime void.

    This documentary recounts the world according to Kapoor, via a journey, from his London studios to the permanent installations of Chicago and Naples, to exhibitions in Bilbao, Mumbai and Dehli.
    The artist is given the opportunity to talk personally about his perpetual quest for new forms, which are always deeply moving.

    This captivating film retraces the intellectual and human process that led Mondrian to geometric abstraction, the highly characteristic style that made him one of the major figures of the international artistic avant-guarde.

    The work of Dutch painter Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) marked a turning point in the history of modern painting. Initially influenced by Cubism, Mondrian invented an original universal language of geometric shapes and primary colours in the early 1920s. Along with Kandinsky and Malevitch, he was one of the pioneers of pure abstraction, an innovative trend that strongly influenced 20th century art.

    Filmed in the exact replica of his studio at 26 rue du Départ in Paris, this docu-fiction brings Mondrian back to life. It portrays the man who was passionate about dance and jazz and retraces his artistic path, from his first realist works to his mystical years, from the Stijl movement to his departure for New York, where he died in 1944.

    François Morellet is today recognised as one of the great artists of our time, and his works can be seen in the majority of the world's museums.

    Close to the minimalists and the conceptualists, Serge Lemoine, president of the Musée d'Orsay, places François Morellet in the world of contemporary art.
    For 30 years, one of the main aspects of Morellet's work has been the (over 100) pieces he has done in the public domain. We exhibit thirty of his works done in Europe, some of them spectacular, others extremely discreet.
    But beyond his works is the man himself. François Morellet is an atypical character. He pursues his very rigorous and radical work with detachment and distance, is rather exceptionally modest and above all, has a biting sense of humour.

    The documentary is Jacques Monory's vision of the universe. It is a portrait of the artist, his thoughts and works.

    For the past fifty years, Jacques Monory has been an integral part of the French artistic scene. He has been and is still today the great artist of the so-called "Narrative Figuration" movement which coincided with Pop Art in the United States and in Great Britain.
    The works of Jacques Monory have mainly to do with American cinema. He uses the pictures of American cinema to describe the world as he sees it. Although he does have a pessimistic vision of the world, he nevertheless manages to distance himself from his work and from his personal life.

    The general public still associate David Hockney, the legendary artist of the Seventies, with the blue of his Californian swimming pools, with Los Angeles boys, Andy Warhol or with the cult film "A Bigger Splash".

    Filmed in Autumn 1998 in Los Angeles, in his house, this film sheds new light on David Hockney's current work and will be the chance to rediscover an artist who expresses his talents in spheres as diverse as painting, photography, etching and opera design, an artist whose fame has never stopped growing.

    In his studio we are present with him during the production of the works which he considers to be the crowning achievement of his research into the connection between space and landscape : his representations of the Grand Canyon. Two monumental works consisting of 60 juxtaposed canvases.
    By means of successive brush strockes, the film throws light on how an artist proceeds and is able to develop a work which is both intimate and spectacular, taking inspiration from his immediate environment : landscape, but also close friends, family and familiar objects, witnesses of passing time?

    He allows us to share his concerns over the connection between painting and photography, time and memory. He tells us how his work on opera has influenced his comprehension of space, he takes us along with him on his "musical drives", cruising through the Californian landscape, which he enjoys doing whilst listening to Parsifal: in a car one is at the centre of things and when one moves through the landscape, one becomes a centre that moves.

    Aurélie Nemours talks about her choice to exhibit alongside a sculptor, Jean Tinguely, whose work she situates at the opposite end of the spectrum to her own. Then, the artist speaks of her silence, abstraction, disappearance, infinity, and the void. On the day of the interview, Aurélie confided in us, revealing some secrets.
