Artists and Lovers: Paris 1900-1930
an afternoon salon with Julie Martin
Sun, Feb 10, 4pm at Norte Maar
In celebration of Valentine’s Day and in conjunction with our current exhibition Giacometti and a selection of contemporary drawings, Norte Maar presents and afternoon salon with Julie Martin, co-author of Kiki’s Paris: Artists and Lovers, Sunday, February 10 at 4pm.
In Paris during the early 1900s, the bohemian lifestyle cultivated a flourishing era of artistic freedom and innovation. From 1900 to 1930, Montparnasse was the center of artistic life for the whole world. Alice Ernestine Prin (1901-1953), also known as Kiki de Montparnasse, was in the center of it all—singing in nightclubs, modeling for artists in makeshift studios, discussing life over wine and cigarettes, meeting up at cafés and fashioning friendships with some of the most influential creative minds in modern art such as Man Ray, Pablo Picasso, and Diego Rivera.
For this special afternoon, Julie Martin will talk about this influential time in Paris, the extraordinary life of Kiki, and a bit about the young Alberto Giacometti.
