The Bullukian Foundation: One project, one partner.
The Muscari association is pleased to collaborate once again with the Bullukian Foundation. Indeed, on the occasion of its 40th anniversary, this prominent contemporary art center in Lyon has embarked, alongside the architects from Atelier CH.V, on the creation of its “Jardin 2050” aiming for the rehabilitation of its outdoor space into a place for exchange and art.
In order to carry out this monumental program, both architectural and artistic, the teams from the Bullukian Foundation and Atelier CH.V have enlisted Muscari to create ceramics in harmony with the project. After several months of discussions and technical tests, the ceramics from Gumri will soon be able to find their place in this exceptional garden.
More than just a step, the realization is underway.
The continuity of exchanges with French ceramists.
For this purpose, an art residency will take place next month in France with the ceramic decorators from the Gumri workshop.
In February, this specialist in wheel throwing and glazed pottery will host three ceramic decorators from the Gumri workshop at his studio in Chassey-le-Camp. They will be decorating pieces previously crafted by François.
A Lyonnais tribute to Armenian craftsmanship.
Thus, Nariné Aleksanyan, Mariam Khachatryan, and Mher Hovhannisyan will have two weeks to bring this exceptional project to life through unique works, as the decorations inspired by Armenian tradition have been specially designed for the Bullukian Foundation.
The Muscari association and the Family Care Foundation are delighted to continue this partnership with the Bullukian Foundation, which pays a true tribute to Armenian craftsmanship in the heart of Lyon.
To see the completed ceramics installed in this new haven of peace, you will need to be patient. The inauguration is scheduled for September 2024.
