Université Sorbonne Nouvelle presents a conversation between contemporary artists Glenn Ligon and Emo de Medeiros. Among other topics, the discussion will address the work and commitment of the two guest artists, their perception of issues of diversity and inclusion in the United States and France, the writing of history in the visual arts, and the need to defend a more intersectional interpretation of culture.

The event will also welcome Valerie Cassel Oliver (curator of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts), Antonia Rigaud (Université Sorbonne Nouvelle), who has devoted part of her research to Ligon's creations, and Philippe Dagen (Institut National de l'Histoire de L'Art).
