A black-and-white exhibition based on recent acquisitions by the Frac Ile-de-France, Paint it Black. proposes a radical formal concept, the better to bring out the intrinsic logic of each of the works on view, which can be based on an abstraction of reality, conjure up the perforce selective work of memory, or propose various cosmic visions of the world… By referring explicitly to music, Paint it Black. is endowed with a set of scores which, in a conceptual manner that has historically encouraged black and white in its quest for the ideal, pace the exhibition like so many potential refrains.

The presentation of twenty works from the outstanding collection of the Department of Graphic Arts of the Musée des Arts décoratifs (not less than 1200 drawings) authorizes, on the principle of accumulation, miscellaneous comparisons and listings, the coverage of a temporal prism open from the 1930s to the turn of the 1970s, the materiality of the carried out orders (or in progress because not achieved), the restitution of hexagonal and international sociability links tied by the creator connected to many social networks (versus Boni de Castellane) and assured of a famous clientele (from Anna de Noailles to Charles Beistegui).

The École Spéciale d'Architecture presents an exhibit of drawings by architects, artists, illustrators, designers, writers and students of Parisian constructions built between 1955 and 1965.
"If you erased nineteenth century buildings, Paris would be comprised only of a scattered and disparate set of buildings, a hole-filled fabric of unusual architectural objects, a museum of incongruous, irreconcilable ages: medieval, modern and perhaps most difficult to identify, this strange period that straddles 1960."

The selection of works focuses on Vos' representations of Ovid's Metamorphoses, in particular those in which a bird embodies the final stage of the transformation. Also included are individual characters from classical mythology undergoing a transfiguration, as well as drawings that can be said to form part of personal mythology.

Berlin-Paris-Beyrouth, the city and its borders
An exhibit by Zeina Abirached, Paula Bulling and Nicolas Wild
Tuesday, 9th to Saturday 27th April, 2013
From left to right: drawings by Zeina Abichared, Paula Bulling and Nicolas Wild; executed during their stay in Berlin, Paris and Beirut
Three cities, three ways of looking at a city, a culture, a society – three ways of experiencing the borders of a metropolis. For two weeks, Zeina Abirached, Paula Bulling and Nicolas Wild, the comic book authors, changed places in life and work. A game of hare and hounds, a paper trail, a treasure hunt, prepared by each of the authors led them to unexpected, unusual or emblematic places, in search of the geographic, religious and social borders of the city. This exhibit follows their paths through sketches, original drawings and stories from the blog created especially for the occasion. This will give visitors a taste of the larger exhibit to be presented in 2014 that will bring together all the artists who took part in the Comic-Transfer Project.

Adapted to the specific needs related to the production of Sèvres, engraving let report, at will, friezes, rosettes and attributes on difficult surfaces to decorate with ease and accuracy difficult to achieve manually. Many designs of ornaments and decorative friezes, and also the collection of engraved plates, still in use in decorating shops, show the place of this technique in Sèvres. Etching is used in the workshops of the Manufacture in the second half of the eighteenth century for testing transfer of gold decorative patterns on some parts service, but the first printing workshop was established in 1806 at the Manufacture. The significant growth of this technique in Sèvres during the first half of the nineteenth century is linked to the creation of large tableware and vases. This tradition has continueduntil today, while adapting to the changing shapes, designs and styles. Since the 1960s, artists like Mitsuko Takano, Roberto Matta and Philippe Favier renewed use of this technique in creating contemporary pieces. The presentation of drawings and engravings ornaments Sèvres from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century, explains the role of etching in the set design and show the major role of Sèvres in the history of decorative arts.
Exhibition open daily to the public from April 3 to May 13, 2013, except Tuesdays and May 1, on the occasion of the fourteenth Drawing Week (from Monday 8 to Monday 15 April 2013). The exhibition is also part of Drawing now Paris / Contemporary Drawing (11 to 14 April 2013).

Un artiste voyageur en Micronésie, l'univers flottant de Paul Jacoulet
Curator : Christian Polak, With the collaboration of Julien Rousseau
Scientific advisors : Kiyoko Sawatari, Sébastien Galliot
Paul Jacoulet (1896 – 1960) was a French artist who arrived in Japan in 1899 and lived there for most of his life. In those days, travels were unusual however Paul Jacoulet often went to Korea, China and Micronesia, to draw portraits of the native people, using ukiyo-e print techniques - a Japanese designation meaning "image of the floating world" – favouring depictions of everyday life during the Edo period (1603-1868). In his prints, watercolours and drawings, the artist represents men and women he encountered, using an approach that is both intimate, aesthetic and ethnographic. Several major themes are an invitation to travel in his prolific and singular oeuvre: the vision of an artist-ethnographer for whom faraway lands became a daily and intimate reality, the representation of tattoos and jewellery and also of the eroticism that infuses certain portraits.

Jean Dubuffet, Rue des Petits-Champs, Bombance, gouache, 1962
©Fondation Dubuffet/ ADAGP Paris
From the Messages series, 1944 to the dark Scriptions of the Non-lieux series, 1984, from graffiti to highly cerebral scribbles, this exhibition explores the presence of writing in Jean Dubuffet’s work.
The artist is also known as a writer, one which his childhood friends have lent a dual purpose, claiming that writing would suit him much better than painting. The artist has often discussed his relation with writing. Writing that he will never give up, as seen through his various literary writings or the special care he will give to the titles of his works. However, he will never be completely satisfied by his writings as he would be with his painted oeuvre.
This exhibition will consider another form of writing. A form of writing which, if it sometimes seems to take more of painting than writing, reveals the porosity between the two practices. Without being a demonstration, it attempts to reveal new visions.

Silver mountains, 2011, Peinture acrylique argent sur papier noir, 70x100cm
Courtesy Gilles Balmet et galerie Dominique Fiat, Paris
|Aiming at promoting contemporary art through its collection of art books and its cultural events, every year the multimedia library Marguerite Duras gives carte blanche to a contemporary artist. This year, this opportunity is given to Gilles Balmet, painter, drawer, filmmaker and photographer, born in 1979. He's been recently focusing on works on paper and canvas, between abstraction and figuration, questionning the notion of landscape, the role of the viewer in image analysis, the notions of mastering and serendipity, of order and chaos, and the links between painting and photography.
The exhibition will present an important group of recent works from different series such as Silver mountains, Waterfalls, Silver reliefs and Rubber soul, a balance between abstraction and representations of landscapes, the results of a process of image creation specifically developed by Gilles Balmet in his studios and labs. These works, evoking photographs, combine drawing, painting, chemical and physical reactions from opposite matters, movements and varied manipulations on papers, and will occupy different areas of the library.

|Heir to the most distant past, matrix or autonomous, today the drawing has muddied the borders. He seizes the gallery YGREC through the proposals of students of the ENSAPC. Kind of freeze, the exhibition offers selected pieces of a drawing, slow or fulginious, deposited on a thin sheet of paper or deplying itself into space - out off paper-, elliptical or overloaded, secret (in the middle of a book) or expansive, narrative or silent, even elusive in its immateriality.

The exhibition at the LaM is his first museum retrospective in France, and second in importance after the one at the Stockholm Moderna Museet in 2005. Comprising almost a hundred art works, it unfolds a comprehensive panorama of his work, from his pencil drawings done between 1995 and 2010 to his more recent collages, including his architectural models and his photographic collages of 2006-2010.
