“CONTEMPLATION – Art of fugue and art of meditation”
In the heart of the city of Arles, within the historical setting of the Antique Theatre, Contemplation offers a totally new encounter between music and meditation in the form of a dialogue between the Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard and the pianist Maria-João Pires, who will perform several Bach Partitas. This exceptional evening prolongs the exhibition of photographs by Matthieu Ricard in a 1,000 m² bamboo pavilion installed on the banks of the Rhône, specially created by the Columbian architect Simon Velez.CONTEMPLATION is part of the programming in association with the 2018 Rencontres de la Photographie d’Arles.
