A Beautiful Exhibition to Celebrate Joël Degbo's Residency

2019 Artist-in-Residence exhibition.

On Tuesday, April 9, the LFC community was thrilled to explore the work that Joël Degbo, our 2019 artist in residence, has done in collaboration with our students and teachers. His exhibition, entitled "Various Lights," highlighted our students' relationship to their urban environment in a vibrant showcase that featured voices, videos and pinhole photographs. The impressive installation was very much appreciated by all, young and old. The evening culminated at nightfall with an amazing and moving video projected onto the facade of the school. Enjoy the photos. Thank you Joël!

"The artist-in-residence program offered by the Lycée Français de Chicago is a wonderful initiative. As the 2019 guest artist, I was fortunate to work with students of all ages – a wonderful opportunity for so early in my career. Our discussions made me realize that the students are interested in everything, want to understand everything and are ready to try everything. Inspiring and exciting!" – Joël Degbo
