UN High Level Forum on the Culture of Peace - 9.9.2014

On 13 September 1999, the United Nations General Assembly adopted, by consensus, Resolution 53/243 on the Declaration and Programme of Action on a Culture of Peace. Among other things, this Resolution provided the driving force for the implementation of the UN-declared International Decade for Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World (2001-2010). Asserting and re-affirming the commitment of the totality of the United Nations membership to building a Culture of Peace, the General Assembly has been adopting resolutions on the subject every year since 1997.

The one-day High Level Forum will take place on 9 September, 2014 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. It will comprise of an opening segment and two multi-stakeholder interactive panels and a brief closing segment. The two panels will focus on: (1) the role and contributions of women and the young to the Culture of Peace; and (2) global citizenship as a pathway to the Culture of Peace.

ARTLOVERS - Stories of art in the Pinault collection

July 12 – September 7, 2014

The links between a great number of works of art with works that are either contemporary to them or anterior—links revealed through quotations, allusions, references, parodies, praise, criticism,  diversion, remakes, appropriation, reuse etc.—such is the theme of this exhibition. In it, these artistic relationships, visible or secret, between the works and between the artists, are explored in all the diversity of their expression. In addition, the exhibition will illustrate how these artworks owe nothing to either the backward-looking signs of regret or of reverence; rather their dynamism comes from transformation, inspiration, from the production of forms and ideas.
