SCENOGRAPHY : THE GRADUATE PROGRAM
SCENOGRAPHY CULTURAL, EVNTS, MUSEUMS, THEATRE & OPERA
An exhibition of art works or the launch of a product, a theatre or opera set, these environments do not only present objects, architecture, dispositions or theatrical sets installed in a specific space. They are spaces in which the sophisticated staging and presentation implies an in depth cultural knowledge, a literary & historical knowledge, as well as technical and spatial expertise, the understanding of circulation, of lighting, the creation of graphic communication, and conceptualisation…
The role of the scenographer is situated at the meeting point of the arts, architecture and the event or show, At the heart of the conceptual and creative process.
Like an orchestral conductor: the conceptualisation and the installation of an event, of an exhibition, a show… the scenographer is a professional who’s skills and knowledge are more and more in demand by public and private institutions.
The exhibition scenographer is a creator, and main contractor who valorises the space and the artworks. His/her role consists of imaging the experiential journey, imaging the ambiance (lighting, sound, multimedia, etc) in a museum, gallery, a cultural or scientific space, etc.
The event scenographer is subject to the same constraints as those of the exhibition or cultural scenographer, but the focus is the brand or the spirit and values of a product to communicate, the type of event and the space occupied. The scenographer creates fashions shows, product launches and events etc.
The show scenographer imagines scenic sets, be they for theatre or opera… He/she creates all the pictorial, plastic, architectural, poetic, lighting, virtual, realist or symbolic, sets and decors which accompany and present a show, and which enable the elaboration of the scene.
