renowned artists will be invited to deliver a speech or talk on the subject of utopia, irony and politics.
Their interventions will be followed by a dialogue with Nicola Setari, the curator of the program. The second part of the evening will be open and earmarked for exchanges between artists, researchers and guests who are part of the Paris art scene.
The program will take place once a
month between February and June 2014 and the first soapbox evening will be on 27 February at 9pm. The event will run till midnight.
