Pierre Courtin, LSU School of Art Lecture
April 13, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Pierre Courtin, director of Duplex 100m2 Gallery in Sarajevo, Bosnia, and Herzegovina, will lecture at the LSU School of Art at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 13, 2016, in the Design Building Auditorium (room 103).
Courtin likes to think, act, and work with his hands. With a sense of humor, he multitasks and embodies different jobs—gallery director, collector, artist, consultant, and curator. Each one of these activities is embodied, questioned, and has powerful artistic and political engagement. Courtin offers experiment formats in a sharing economy. Since 2004, he’s headquartered in Sarajevo, where he opened a gallery or rather, “a singular platform for artistic encounters.
An exhibition curated by Courtin, Conquer the Beauty: Emerging Art from Bosnia & Herzegovina, will be on display at the Good Children Gallery in New Orleans, Louisiana, April 9 through May 8, 2016. An opening reception will be held April 9, 6–9 p.m.
