We are pleased to welcome French multidisciplinary artist Alain Joule, who will be speaking about his work and themes. matralab explore is a series of 5 a 7 events where artist-researchers will present their thoughts on a work in progress.

Alain Joule artistic practice focuses poetry, art, music, and dance. Joule’s writings focuses on the interaction between spoken and written poetry. As an artist, Joule’s mediums are painting, sculpting, and art installations. He is also a composer who creates unique compositions and improvisations.
