Artist Talks 2022 © Florent Drillon

Conceived and organized by The Eyes’ team, the Artist Talks by The Eyes put into perspective the link between the artist and the book in his artistic practice, his editorial approach and realization.

In an intimate atmosphere, each artist shares with the public his experience around his most recent publication in a set format of 15 minutes, followed by Q&A’s.

In all 30 artists selected by The Eyes participate in this unique program presented in French or in English.

Artist Talks by The Eyes are organized and hosted by Marc Feustel (author and independent curator), Emilie Lauriola (bookseller specialized in photography), Pascale Obolo (independent curator, director of the African Art Book Fair) and Véronique Prugnaud (director of The Eyes).

Programme subject to change.
