Rad’Arts

Hugues Reip

Since 1984, Radio-Cartable has been a radio station for pupils in the town of Ivry-sur-Seine and broadcasts live on Thursdays from 2 to 3 pm on 89.4 FM.
The recording studio is located at the Maurice Thorez Elementary School and is run by a resource teacher. The radio programme entitled Rad’Arts was created in 2012 with Crédac. “Rad’Arts is a programme that talks to you about art on the radio”. It is based on exchanges during visits to exhibitions and an interview with the Bureau des publics team in class.

Rad’Arts was developped by Éric Chatron’s CM2 class from Joliot-Curie A elementary school, in the exhibition L’évasion by Hugues Reip (April 20 - July 1st, 2018). This program was built from the exchanges during the guided tour and an interview of the artist conducted with the Bureau des publics team in class.

Artist biography

  • Hugues Reip (born in 1964 in Cannes, lives and works in Paris) develops since the beginning of the 1990s a body of work using a wide variety of mediums (drawing, sculpture, photography, video, slide show, etc.) and a very personal economy combining apparent simplicity, meticulous lightness and efficiency to explore the fantastic and the extraordinary of the everyday life and the familiar. His work has been presented on the occasion of numerous monographic exhibitions in art centers (Quartier de Quimper, Crac de Sète, Domaine de Chamarande) or FRAC (Limousin, Basse Normandie). His work has very quickly crossed the borders of France to be exhibited in Japan (Tokyo Wonder Site), Iceland (Safn Museum in Reykjavik) or the United States (Brooklyn Museum of Art in New York). He is the winner of the 2004 Altadis Prize alongside Berdaguer & Péjus and François Curlet. He teaches at the National School of Architecture at La Villette in Paris.
