Early Work at Orsay: an encounter between generations
Contemporary Art | A year after its foundation, Early Work has become an important actor in the promotion of emerging young artists; providing a bridge that eases the passage between art school and the first steps towards visibility as an artist.
A watershed for developing artists, this online platform which works across art schools, is today confronting the challenge of establishing a real-world presence, notably through a partnership with the prestigious Μusée d’Orsay. A win-win for both parties : Orsay adopts a strategy to rejuvenate its audience while Early Work establishes itself in the outside world. Furthermore, the experience of being exhibited in a prominent museum benefits the training of the apprentice artists; providing a space where they encounter the reality of the art scene. Hommage et pastiche by Arthur Binois and Laurence Imbert, cultural programmers from the Μusée d’Orsay, is a collaboration with Early Work that bases itself on projects which reinterpret academic art through contemporary lenses, while suggesting new ways of apprehending the past and the future through the encounter between art worlds and imaginations.
