The Actor's Paradox

To coincide with the sixtieth edition of the theatre festival, the Collection Lambert presents a summer show devoted to portraits and pictures of actors entitled ‘Figures de l’acteur,The actor's paradox’, an allusion to Diderot’s famous treatise on acting. This exhibition confirms the festival’s intention to anchor its programme in contemporary art, and that of the Collection Lambert to explore the world of stagecraft.


In line with previous historically themed shows such as ‘Artists' Collections’ in summer 2001, this show spotlights four centuries of theatre through over 400 artworks. A multi-facetted historic reference makes up the core of the exhibition, which is neither exhaustive nor chronological, instead evoking changing ways of depicting actors: not only their performances, postures, costumes, but also their rôle in society, from the courtisan to the prince’s closest advisor, from admiration to glorification, from widely-recognized exemplarity to ironic caricature, as well as models for future generations to emulate.


This show was made possible by two outstanding partnerships: the Comédie-Française has loaned a number of rare items, and the performing arts department at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France presents some prestigious printed works on the history of theatre.
