12.08.2014. Alain Satié: a Primer by David Seaman
David W. Seaman is a scholar of the avant-garde, with degrees in German and French from Stanford University. His Concrete Poetry in France (UMI, 1981) is a classic in the field, and he has published many articles in English and French, as well as translations of poetry, novels, and criticism from Italian and French. A visual artist, he has exhibited with the Lettristes, and as a close friend of Alain Satié, spoke at his Père Lachaise cemetery memorial. He now participates in Inismo.

The second generation of Lettrists brought fresh artistic talent that was needed to exploit and illuminate the burgeoning ideas of the movement’s founder, Isidore Isou. After the initial period of manifestos and scandals, Lettrism needed to show that it was artistically pleasing and commercially viable. Alain Satié was a brilliant talent in the new group of artists, joining the movement in the 1960s. He was born in 1944 in Toulouse….

Like the lovers stretched out on the lawn of a lovely summer afternoon, drunk on the odor of plants and flowers, I dream. My mind wanders and returns to years ago. Among the trees and shrubs, I dream of my work.

31.03.2014. Hommage à Maurice Lemaître

Maurice LEMAÎTRE, être lettriste

Galerie TRIGANO
4bis, rue des Beaux Arts 75006 Paris
du 3 avril au 16 mai 2014

Vernissage le Jeudi 3 avril de 18h à 21h

Maurice Lemaître, né à Paris
le 23 avril 1926, est un artiste, écrivain et poète français. Il est l'une des figures du lettrisme des années 1950 à aujourd'hui. Maurice Lemaître, prépare l'École des Arts et Métiers et celle des Travaux publics. Après avoir participé à la Libération de Paris, il commence en Sorbonne une licence de philosophie.
Entré en 1948 au mouvement libertaire, il y débute une carrière de journaliste en écrivant dans le journal de ce mouvement. En 1949, il y rencontre Isidore Isou et est séduit par les idées politiques et la fougue créatrice de celui ci.
En 1950, il se joint au groupe d'avant-garde lettriste, où il crée, la même année une revue politique : le « Front de la Jeunesse », ainsi qu'une revue littéraire et picturale, « Ur », qui reste comme « Le Minotaure » du lettrisme. Depuis cette date, Maurice Lemaître n'a cessé d'agir et de créer dans divers domaines explorés par le mouvement lettriste : la poésie, le théâtre, la danse, le roman, la peinture, la photographie, le cinéma, l'économie, la psychopathologie et la psychothérapie.
Les apports de Maurice Lemaître dans les arts plastiques, en poésie et dans le roman sont si incontournables qu'il est cité dans les études modernes sur la littérature contemporaine (Centre Pompidou, Hachette, Seghers, ...

Broutin New Yorkers show their (astonishment) disapproval: themes: polemic: expression (of astonishment) of disapproval (creative)
creative (living sculpture) 2014, India ink on Canson paper 32 x 24 cm.
 
New York, February 23, 2014. New Yorkers organized a protest march in the streets of SoHo. The demonstrators came from every borough to express their astonishment, indeed for the most engaged their disapproval, of the title and content of the show Art by Delegation organized in Brussels.
 
John Smith, a member of the American branch of the Committee for Creative Vigilance: I don't understand why the show is called Art by Delegation. Since it is supertemporal art with the participation of the viewers, based on an idea of Isidore Isou, the creator of Letterism, the show could have simply been called Concerning the Supertemporal.”
 
Ann Pandergast is among the most determined demonstrators: We call on all art lovers to write their creative slogans on the supertemporal banner.”
 
James Trawisky participated in the demonstration, but expresses reservations about the radicalness of some of the entries: After all, this show can be considered an advance that takes into account the realities of public awareness and the state of the market. If it is a further step toward the propagation and recognition of this avant-garde movement, then why not?

Date : Fri, Oct 4, 2013
From : gpbroutin@xxxxx
To : Louis.berreur@xxxxxx
Subject : The Book of the Living

Dear Edouard Berreur,
I am currently working on new editions of some of my previous works. I am writing to you about The Book of the Living, a small booklet that you were supposed to publish in 1970, for which I had given you the original drawings for the deluxe edition.
Through the friendly intermediary of Frederic Acquaviva, last year I was able to lay my hands on an ordinary copy of it; this is the first time I had seen it. The facts are disappointing: the present edition was only printed with a few copies, and was never distributed. The deluxe editions were never done. After all this time, I am not looking to start a confrontation with you – as I should have done earlier – but rather to find a positive solution
which will finally permit me to give this work its place in my bibliography.
I am inclined to help you arrive at an outcome that satisfies both of us. Let me know what you would suggest on your part.

Your friend, Broutin

(As we go to press, I have not had any response to my e-mail.)

03.08.2013. EXPOSITION Lemaître - Broutin, Berlin
Maurice Lemaître (1926) is the last historical lettrist alive, having joined Isou and the Lettrist movement in 1949. He published more than400 books and created more than 100 films and thousands of paintings and photographs. He was also active in poetry and politics.
www.mauricelemaitre.org

Broutin (1948) is the last member of importance having joined Lettrism after may 68. He has developed a unique minimalist style in all the art forms invented by Isou :  hypergraphics, imaginary art and excoordism. He also wrote 2 lettrist concertos.

This exhibition, curated by Frédéric Acquaviva,  is the first lettrist exhibition ever to show in isolation the connection between two members of two generations of the group.
