As part of the Festival d’art, the commune of Saint-Briac-sur-Mer, which holds a significant collection of works by the sculptor Armel Beaufils (1882-1952) has invited the artist and SHU’s Reader of Fine Art Dr Sharon Kivland to curate an exhibition based on this collection, titled Armel Beaufils, le Regard des femmes.

The project highlights an exceptional but little-known collection, and links more the two parts of the Festival: ‘from heritage to contemporary art’ by inviting forty women artists to produce a correspondence with these works, across time. The exhibition is accompanied by a publication. Find out more about the show here.
