Spaces limited. First come, first-served.
Join us for a tour of Cy Twombly: Photographs. Led by Clémence Cottard Hachem, this tour will delve into Twombly’s photographic practice and techniques. Cottard will focus on specific works to explain Twombly’s visual research through his photography, and the influence it had on his painterly practice.
Clémence Cottard Hachem is the Head of Collections at the Arab Image Foundation, Beirut. Her research focuses on photographic practices and techniques of the 19th and 20th centuries. Through the questions of mechanical production, diffusion, usages, and reception, she interrogates the ontology of photography to gain a better understanding of the practice today. Cottard has collaborated with numerous museums, including the Grand Palais and the Jeu de Paume. Since 2012, she is devoted to conserving and studying photographic collections in the region.
