Art: A Way of Bringing People Together


Art Exhibit: East and West in the Works of Dr. Serge Raynaud de la Ferrière

Who are we?

We are the Association for the Preservation of the European Work of Dr. Serge Raynaud de la Ferrière, a non-profit organization comprised of volunteers. Since 1981 we have dedicated our efforts in continuing and disseminating the humanitarian work and avant-garde thought of De la Ferrière in the realms of art, science, philosophy and education.

What is it about?

From June 11 – 22, 2016, we will be holding various activities in Nice (France) and Trieste (Italy) in honour of the 100-year anniversary of the birth of our founder, the French thinkerDr. Serge Raynaud de la Ferrière. Among the activities that we will be holding both in France and Italy is the art exhibit: East and West in the Works of Dr. Serge Raynaud de la Ferrière where a sample of De la Ferrière‘s art works will be presented. The sociological and anthropological value of the art works from this thinker who sought to unite the human experience in the evolution of history as well as the human experience of the different regions and traditions in the world, gives way to a sense of union and intercultural rapprochement, based on tolerance by means of understanding and the study of ancient and modern legacies and identities within the distinct cultures. He has defined pieces representing the East and the West, each with its own anthropological and socio-cultural particularities, promoting a self-cultivation, education and realization, penetrating into multiple concepts and symbols of both the past and present.

In addition, we will be organizing lectures, symposiums and workshops exploring De la Ferrière’s vision expressed not only in his paintings but also in his 100 literary works extending to topics in science, philosophy and education. We will as well be exploring other avant-garde humanitarian artists, scientists and thinkers.

We are currently facing the reality that in the areas in which we are holding these events, there are not many art and culture subsidies. We still haven’t reached the amount of money to cover our basic expenses and we need your help whether it be monetary or even with your time, in order to organize these events.
