Workshop for artistic practice
From 16 October 2011 to 29 January 2012
Michel François has made the posters from his exhibition “22 500 affiches (posters) 1994-2011″ available at the CCC of Tours, for 5-15 year olds. The artist has invited them to exchange an image for an artistic experience.
For the duration of the exhibition, once a month the CCC’s auditorium has become the ’Workshop of Michel François’ where children and adolescents have enriched the artist’s images with their own by adding a pictorial layer to the photograph. All of the workshop output has been added to the artist’s collection in the last week of January.
The children’s exhibition presented over 100 of Michel François’ posters reinterpreted by the 5-15 year olds who took part in the workshop. An exceptional piece of work and a shared production with the artist for the duration of his exhibition.
