• Annie Cohen-Solal is an academic and writer. For ever, she has been tracking down interactions between art, literature and society with an intercultural twist. After Sartre : A Life (1987) became an international success, she became French cultural counselor in the US, where she held her position from 1989 to 1992. In New York, Cohen-Solal’s encounter with Leo Castelli led her to shift her interest to the art world. In the frame of a manyfold project which was to become a social history of the US artist, she published Painting American (2001); Leo Castelli & His Circle (2010); New York-Mid Century (2014), with Paul Goldberger and Robert Gottlieb; Mark Rothko (2013). In 2013, she became special advisor at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris for the Nuit Sartre ; in 2014, as general curator of Magiciens de la terre 2014 at the Centre Pompidou, she published Magiciens de la terre : retour sur une exposition légendaire, with Jean-Hubert Martin. As a professor, she has held positions at Tisch School of the Arts (NYU), École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales, University of Caen, École Normale Supérieure in Paris, the Freie University of Berlin, and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Her new book A Foreigner Called Picasso ( Fayard, Paris, 2021 and Farrar, Straus & Giroux, New York, 2022) is accompanied by an exhibition (Museum of immigration, in partnership with the Musée national Picasso-Paris ; November 2021-February 2022) and by a catalog. Born in Algiers, Annie now lives between Paris and Cortona.
