11 September 2019 - Forum 1 Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris
For the third edition of Extra ! Le festival de la littérature vivante, will be exhibited the Alain Arias-Misson's tapestry, realized for the occasion by the artist, product by Bonotto.
Alain Arias-Misson winner of the prize Méntion Spéciale Fondazione Bonotto 2018, has for this year projected and developed a tapestry, product by Fondazione Bonotto, that will be exhibited for the first time to the public at Centre Pompidou, Paris.
Alain Arias-Misson, poet and Belgian artist, publishes since the 60s poems, news, essays and novels. In 1967 he founded the concept of Public Poem, a synthesis of poetry, performance and urban writing. Public Poems take place in public spaces, especially urban areas characterized by a concentrated human presence: metro, streets, etc. With his Public Poems, Alain Arias-Misson approaches the city as a subject of history, a meeting place and a simultaneity of signs that give life and meaning. It is to this very particular kind of living and collective poetry that this monographic exhibition will be dedicated.
The exhibition is realized with Fondazione Bonotto's support.
