About us

The mission of the “Humanities, Arts and Society” Project is to demonstrate the impact of the arts and creativity on society, promote global understanding and collaboration between the disciplines, as well as establish a worldwide movement of artists, researchers, thinkers and project holders .

Artists and Projects

Artists from all regions of the world must develop multidisciplinary cooperation with fields of research and the sciences, in the following spheres: The arts as tools in innovation, invention, evolution, and progress; The arts as tools in education, knowledge, and awareness; The arts as tools in practical and sustainable development; The arts as tools in critical thinking, revolution, and resistance; The arts as tools to fight all forms of discrimination.

“The arts do not replace science and are not reducible to the concerns of the sciences, but they participate in the process of developing the creativity, the imagination of new futures, of diversity and of critical thinking.”

From Nature to Myth

exhibition and events
@ Mémoire de l’Avenir

09/10 – 06/11/2021.

The exhibition From Nature to Myth presents a series of 12 works, between sculpture and ready-made of curved stones entangled with books, through which the artist proposes a reflection on the development of our cultural principles as well as on the role of nature in that process, by analysing the story told in chapter 3 of Genesis.

It is indeed through the observation of nature, through the fear and wonders it provokes, through the infinite mysteries it contains, that myths, ancestral stories or religions have emerged in all cultures.
