Banquet – 2013 edition


[slideshow_deploy id=’928′]

A first edition of the Banquet took place on Friday 27th September 2013 to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the museum, with the help of the artists Fabien Vallos and Jérémie Gaulin. For an evening, 350 people – among which many artists, art critics, curators and collectors that contributed to the museum’s History – were brought together to share a unique moment of conviviality around a real Banquet à la française imagined by the artists.
Entitled “Celebration”, this Banquet gave way to a festive atmosphere, discussions and encounters. We received the support of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux, who was also celebrating its fortieth anniversary and generously offered all the wine.  
The price of the meal is 300 euros per person and is paid as a donation, entitling you to a fiscal deduction of 60% for companies (therefore a real cost of 120 euros) and 66% for individuals (therefore a real cost of 102 euros). Each paying meal allowed us to invite an artist, an art critic or an artistic personality that was important to the CAPC’s history.

This donation allows the entrepreneurs of Bordeaux to contribute to the influence of their city and region, by enriching the CAPC’s artwork collection and offering to the guests a networking venue.

Dress code : black tie and cocktail dress

2014 // Visit backstage of the TnBA and meeting with the actors of Cyrano de Bergerac, after the show


Texts Edmond Rostand
Adaptation and direction Dominique Pitoiset

Last year, Dominique Pitoiset signed the foreword of the brochure with a loud “No, thank you!” taken from Cyrano who he had, he says, met. The lines showed all the admiration he had for the work of Edmond Rostand. It will therefore not come as a surprise that he directed the masterpiece. To personify the poet with a long nose, Dominique Pitoiset calls upon the formidable Philippe Torreton.

Evening in collaboration with the TnBA
Tour of the TnBA followed by a cocktail and a meeting with the actors after the show

2013 // Support to the cycle of conferences thought up by François Cusset

Thinking… To see
What the critic tells us today


François Cusset invites 8 major intellectuals to speak at the CAPC. Eight conference-events, to experiment directly with the power of evocation, elucidation and revelation linked to contemporary critical thought. Eight thinkers, to sse the world differently whilst renewing with the etymology of the word “theory”, the theorein, that was used by the Greeks to qualify the aptitude et see what is to come, what is new. Eight voices to rethink utopia, emotion, resemblance, sex, debt, the body, the brain and politics in a new light.
Professor at the University Paris Ouest Nanterre, former director of the Bureau du Livre Français at New York, radio and newspaper columnist, François Cusset is the author of several essays of reference, such as French Theory and The Decade (La Découverte, 2003 and 2006). As well as a first novel, published in the Autumn of 2012 with P.O.L. editions: A l’abri du déclin du monde.

2011 // Support to the cycle of conferences on the Traffic exhibition


Proposed by Nicolas Bourriaud, the exhibition Traffic was shown at the CAPC from January to March 1996. At a time when “relational aesthetics” was finding its theoretical reasoning, the exhibition became a live expression of it.

Fifteen years later, the CAPC looks back on this event and proposed to build an archive a posteriori of the event, retracing the History of the exhibition through speech. All throughout the year different personnalities will be invited to speak about what they have seen and done in Traffic

2009 // Support to the cultural program “Les Promesses de l’Ecran”


La Promesse de l’écran is a retractable screening device proposed by Pierre Leguillon since 2007. The events are devoted to peripheral aspects of cinema: credits, poster, recurring motif, etc., or propose to look at the screen through another medium: poetry, painting, drawing…
