Walls and Bridges

Walls and Bridges is a 10-day series of performances and critical explorations uniting French and American thinkers and artists from social sciences, philosophy, literature and live arts.

Walls and Bridges : day 1 !

"Salon de Fleurus" is a modern recreation of the legendary Gertrude and Leo Stein’s Parisian studio at 27 rue de Fleurus. For two decades, it has quietly kept its doors open in New York, defying definitions while fascinating its visitors. Oscillating between the museum and the domestic space, Salon de Fleurus functions an intimate cabinet of wonder for modern art.

A number of prominent artists and writer —novelist Laurent Binet, essayist and writer Lawrence Weschler (on the photo), physicist Jean-Marc Lévy Leblond and artist Andrea Geyer  — reported their first encounter with this space. They shared with the audience their obsessive and ambiguous approach to reality.
