"The Challenge: We are in this together" – Esther Schipper for The New Institute
For its December newsletter, titled "The Challenge: We are in this together", The New Institute asked Esther Schipper – among other thinkers and practioners – to share her insights and analysis on the current global pandemic. For the occasion, Esther Schipper selected artworks by the gallery artists showing that the questions of viruses and pandemics have been among us for a long time.
Esther Schipper is pleased to announce the representation of Etienne Chambaud
Etienne Chambaud was born 1980 in Mulhouse, France. The artist lives and works in Paris.
Etienne Chambaud works across a wide spectrum of media, exploring the categories we impose on experiences, objects and disciplines. Individual works, installations and exhibitions destabilize notions of what art is and can be, how an artist conceptualizes and produces a work, and the form, function, and history of the exhibition. Beautiful and complex, Chambaud’s works can change the way we see and know.
Etienne Chambaud graduated from ECAL, Lausanne (2003) and Villa Arson, Nice (2005). He was part of the postgraduate program of Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Lyon in 2005. Since 2018 he has been conducting a doctoral research in the SACRe program of PSL University, Ecole Normale Supérieure and Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris.
