The program of the Marc Chagall National Museum for the philosophical diffusion festival includes several fascinating conferences:

Pierre Cassou-Noguès’s Conference: “The unsettling otherness of artificial intelligence” on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, at 7:00 PM. This conference explores the implications of the emergence of artificial intelligence, particularly regarding AI’s ability to generate artistic content and the question of what distinguishes humans from machines.


Michel Pastoureau’s Conference: “Pink: a history of an uncertain color” on Tuesday, April 9, 2024, at 7:00 PM. Pastoureau discusses the cultural history of the color pink, its relatively late emergence in European material culture, and its changing connotations throughout the ages.

Elsa Dorlin’s Conference: “Representing violence” on Tuesday, April 16, 2024, at 7:00 PM. Details on the content of this conference will be communicated later, but one can expect a thorough exploration of issues related to the representation of violence in art and contemporary society.


These conferences are organized as part of the philosophical diffusion festival in collaboration with the ProPhilia project and the University of Côte d’Azur. They offer a unique opportunity to explore fascinating philosophical and cultural topics in the prestigious setting of the Marc Chagall National Museum in Nice.


Short history of the museum

The Marc Chagall National Museum was inaugurated in 1973 while Chagall was still alive, thanks to the support of the Minister of Culture André Malraux.

This museum houses one of the most important collections of this artist’s works.

The museum features Marc Chagall’s works on the Bible, including seventeen paintings dedicated to Genesis, Exodus, and the Song of Songs, as well as sketches related to the same paintings.

Marc Chagall and his second wife, Valentina, donated the paintings to the French government in 1966 and the sketches in 1972.

In addition to the paintings, the museum also preserves sculptures, a mosaic, a tapestry, and three stained glass windows.

In recent years, the museum has been renamed the Marc Chagall National Museum (Musée national Marc Chagall) and has been included in the circuit of the National Museums of the 20th century of the Alpes-Maritimes, along with the Fernand Léger National Museum in Biot and the Picasso National Museum.
