Collective Creativity & L'École de Nice

lecole_de_nice_rosemary_oneillRosemary O’Neill wrote the preface for the book, L’École de Nice: Paroles d’Artistes, published by Verlhac Editions, Paris (2010).  Entitled “École de Nice: Action artistique et bonne humeur” (École de Nice: Artistic Agency and Currents of Geniality), her essay discusses the ways in which French artists in the 1960s along the French Riviera engaged with each other inter-generationally, and used public spaces as sites of creative, and often collective, activity.  The book includes an introduction by Françoise Armangaud, professor of philosophy at the University of Paris, Nanterre, and interviews with over two dozen artists associated with the École de Nice conducted by Franck Leclerc, cultural editor of Nice-Matin.   The book was launched in Paris on October 14, and in Nice, at the historic Librarie Matarasso, on October 29.
