After PEINTURE2020MALEREI—which focused on the cultural influences exerted on the evolution of painting in a globalised era – the new research project, Genre2030, initiated in 2012, questions the influence of sex-specific criteria on this evolution, without neglecting to evaluate the expected influence of the arts practices concerned on the evolution of our societies with a view towards 2030.

In Genre2030, the idea is to ask how the affirmation of autonomy, the role of the artist and his or her sexuality and social identity, and the relationship to the space of the painting and the exhibition space all fit into the constellation of codes of painting, figuration or abstraction, within a broad context. Genre2030 shifts the questions and notions of genre towards those of contemporary pictorial and curatorial practices. Open to all kinds of approaches, this research project is fuelled by the interests and practices of participants, students, artists and theorists.
