Curriculum Vitae

Both an artist and a researcher.  As a Professor of Visual Arts at Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne university's UFR 04 Arts plastiques et sciences de l'Art, he impulses, within the ACTE Institute, the Art & Flux research field which acts as much as an observatory of both theoretical and critical research as it does as a laboratory of artistic experimentation and production. Art & Flux explores, in a critical way, the bounds between Art, economy and Law. www.art-flux.orgYann Toma is the Lifelong President of Ouest-Lumière and an artist-observer within UNO where he sits as an entrepreneurial artist. By salvaging material from former electric power company Ouest-Lumière in the early 1990s, he has appropriated a symbolic network, an industrial infrastructure he has turned into his research territory and the very matter of his activity. He focuses on collaborations with industrials, political scientits and philosophers. His artistic work features in many collections, including that of Musée National d'Art Moderne - Centre Georges Pompidou, and entered the inventory of the Fonds National d'Art Contemporain collection in 2007. www.ouest-lumiere.org.
