As part of the Tilt Kids Festival, co-produced by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), The Invisible Dog Art Center will present Anima, an installation open from March 5 to April 14.

Anima is a collaboration between visual artist Prune Nourry(Terracotta Daughters, 2014) and anthropologist Valentine Losseau with artists Etienne Saglio and Takao Shiraishi, scenographer Benjamin Gabrié, and Cie 14:20.

Cohen Media Group is proud to announce the release of MARGUERITE, writer-director Xavier Giannoli’s satirical tragicomedy set in France in the 1920s, starring Catherine Frot (The Dinner Game, Family Resemblances) as Marguerite Dumont, an eccentric and exceedingly wealthy would-be Opera diva. Nominated for 11 César Awards including Best Film, Best Director and Best Actress, the film was selected for the Venice and Telluride Fim Festivald, and is scheduled to open in New York at The Paris Theater and the Angelika Film Center on Friday, March 11 with a national roll-out to follow.
Not far outside Paris, at the beginning of the Roaring 20s, Marguerite lives in a sumptuous mansion, spending much of her time singing famous opera arias dressed in elaborate theatrical costumes. Marguerite sings whole-heartedly, bearing her soul, but is also terribly, and comically, out of tune. When a young, provocative journalist writes a rave review of her latest private recital, Marguerite’s delusion that s

This spring marks the 70th anniversary of Camus’s one and only trip to the United States. From March to May 1946, he delivered lectures at universities, spoke of the French resistance to Nazi occupation, and acted as a critical observer of American society. Outside of intellectual and literary circles, the young author was scarcely known when he arrived. But he would be. During the course of his visit, his novel The Stranger was published in English for the first time. The New Yorker interviewed him, and the New York Herald Tribune proclaimed him the “boldest writer in France today.”
Fifty-six years after his tragic death in a car crash, Albert Camus remains a major intellectual figure in the world. His reflections on absurdism and revolt, his constant battle for life, freedom and justice against nihilism, terror and ideologies, continue to stimulate discussion and provoke debate. His writings not only inspire artists in music, theater, and cinema; they also help their readers to live.

Cohen Media Group is proud to announce the release of STANDING TALL, writer-director Emmanuelle Bercot’s urgent and sympathetic drama about a teenage delinquent and the tireless efforts of the juvenile judge (Catherine Deneuve,) and counselor (Benoit Magimel) assigned to his case, to save him. The Opening Night selection of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, STANDING TALL won 2 César Awards for Best Newcomer (Rod Paradot) and Best Supporting Actor (Benoit Magimel) and will open in New York on Friday, April 1 at Lincoln Plaza Cinema with a national roll out to follow.
Sixteen-year-old Malony (Rod Paradot) is surrounded by adults both callous and supportive. On the latter side is a warm-hearted court judge Florence Blaque (Catherine Deneuve) and a devoted social worker Yann (Benoît Magimel, The Piano Teacher); on the other side stand most other authority figures. Clearly a victim of circumstances and poor parenting from his basket case of a mother (Sara Forestier, The Names of Love), he’s als

NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Contemporary digital artist from Nice Edmonde Bizelli in Forms and Formalities.
Edmonde Bizelli makes digital art that combines the sharpness and clarity of computer imagery with a softness and range of textures more commonly seen in traditional painting. Having worked as a graphic designer, Bizelli has developed an instinctive feel for the flexibility of digital technology and employs it to striking effect. “I don’t know any artist yet that works with my techniques,” she notes, and that sense of adventurousness is fully communicated in her work. Creating her images mainly on an iPad, she transfers them onto such materials as plexiglass and canvas, giving each work a strong physical presence.

New York, New York – Laurence de Valmy is pleased to announce an exhibition “Colors & reflections” of recent paintings at the French restaurant O Cabanon in Chelsea, NY. The exhibition will open on April 6 and will remain on view through June 6, 2016.
Laurence de Valmy is a French painter who fell in love with the American movements of Contemporary Realism and Photorealism, to the point of becoming a realist painter herself. She believes that what we see influences our mood. Therefore she chooses to paint colorful and bright paintings to create happy and peaceful moments in time.
For this exhibition, curated by Emilie Boix, Manager at OCabanon, Laurence will present a body of work around the study of the light and its impact on colors and reflections. “It’s fascinating to notice how light transforms the colors or how reflections are playful. I’m very pleased of this collaboration with the team of OCabanon. The atmosphere of the restaurant is welcoming and is all about spending a good
