the art world is mobilizing for the reopening of museums

Three calls in three days: initiatives are multiplying in the face of a closure of museums which, in France, drags on while in Italy, for example, doors are reopening. “Museums are undoubtedly the places where human interactions and the risks of contamination are the least proven”, pleaded, Sunday January 31 in The world, a group of personalities demanding an immediate reopening of places of art and heritage. The next day appeared in The Art Newspaper Daily a platform calling for financial support for plastic and visual artists. Then, Tuesday February 2, Emma Lavigne, the president of the Palais de Tokyo, relayed on the Change.org site an open letter sent to the Minister of Culture calling for an lifting of the confinement of art centers.

These three texts convey the same feeling of injustice and powerlessness. “For an hour, for a day, for a week or for a month, let us partially open our doors, even if we had to close them in the event of new confinement or reinforcement of sanitary measures”, pleads the letter from the Palais de Tokyo. Contacted by The world, Emma Lavigne does not resign herself to the wait: “It’s been weeks, months, that we are constantly trying to project into the future, uncertain. We still have not understood why we were closed, even though we are crossing points where we can ensure optimal sanitary gauges. We need to reopen our doors, even in small quantities. “

She explains that the reopening of the museums, expected for January 20, then postponed indefinitely when the variants of the virus appeared, as well as the distress of the students, underlined by Emmanuel Macron in his last speech, were the trigger. “We had fought for our fall exhibitions, most of which had only been open for a week, and then to offer suitable workshops during the Christmas holidays, but all that energy remained frozen. “

” This is very serious “

Like the many institutions that have joined in her approach, she says she prefers “The stop-and-go hypothesis at padlocked doors” : “It is very serious if the culture remains in this state of silence. As long as people can move around, go to shops or places of worship, we want to play our role, to be actors in the midst of this crisis. We all need sharing, and we can invent new protocols ”, she hammers, stressing that the digital experience has its limits.
