|French term or phrase: création d'œuvres d'art |
|I am translating a short report about centres d'art. |
There are several occurrences of "création" and "production" of " d'œuvres d'art" as distinct activities.
Selon le rapport d'activités du Centre national des arts plastiques de 1988, un centre d'art est « une institution expérimentale généralement de statut associatif (loi 1901), ayant pour objet d'être un lieu de création et de production d'œuvres d'art et de manifestations dans le champ de l'art contemoiraube
Le but des centres d’art est de stimuler la production d’œuvres à travers l’incitation à la création.
I suppose I could translate these words as "creation" and "production" and be done with it. However I would like to know the distinction in this context.
|English translation:conception of artworks|
This is the conceptual stage, the working out of ideas that takes place 'on paper' and at the maquette stage, if we are taking about sculpture/installation/conceptual art particularly. Only when that stage is over typically does an artist go ahead and execute an artwork.
In the production of a work of art of either kind, there are two efforts to be accomplished which are in their nature wholly distinct and independent. 1. The object or subject to be delineated is conceived in the mind of the artist. 2. It is executed or completed according to the conception of it.
Unless the first is done adequately, the second is of little avail. Many are able to effect the second who are incompetent to perform the first, and many effect the first who are unable completely to perform the second. The conception may, however, in most cases be expected to exceed the performance, inasmuch as the efforts of the mind are considerably more active and more extensive than those of the body.
