Maurice Besset. Enseigner et exposer l'art abstrait (1969-1975)

Abstract : In a context after May 1968, French cultural domain is considerably transformed. The stake in this report is to return on Maurice Besset's activities to the University of Grenoble and to the Musée de Peinture et de Sculpture of the City in seventies. It is a question of studying the influence which plays his education in his profession of exhibition commissioner. This passion for pedagogy directs professor-curator to a scenography of abstracted works concerning important artists as Max Bill, Jean Dewasne, Jean Gorin, or still Alberto Magnelli. Route of these events is enriched by numerous teaching aids marking Besset's will to create an "alive museum". These considerations will allow to return on a personality having brought an education of contemporary art history and a practice of organization of atypical exhibition. An archives collection Maurice Besset, in the library of the Institut National d'Histoire de l'Art in Paris, allows in particular to redraw the art historian's thought.
