Géraldine Gourbe

Géraldine Gourbe is a philosopher, an author and a curator working on a historical repair: from feminist countercultures in Southern California to the minimalist canon to a history of European pop art (Les Amazones du pop, Mamac Nice, 2020); or a perspective on the relationship between art and industry in the context of a counter-narrative of the so-called “Trente glorieuses” (Gigantisme, un trait d’esprit, first Dunkerque’s Triennal, 2019). Her publications include a monograph on Judy Chicago, To Sustain the Vision (Ed. Villa Arson and Shelter Press, 2020) and an essay on Simone de Beauvoir, Beauvoir (Ed. Pérégrines, 2022).
