Daniel Soutif

Daniel Soutif
Paris, 1946

Daniel Soutif is a philosophy lecturer, art critic and exhibition curator. He has addressed a wide range of themes in his various occupations, particularly as editor of Cahier du Musée national d'art moderne from 1990 to 1994, director of Cultural Development at the Centre Pompidou in Paris from 1993 to 2001, and head of the Centro per l'Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci in Prato, Italy.

For Daniel Soutif, time is vital to thought, as corroborated by his publications (Papiers Journal and Voyages Immobiles, 1994) and exhibitions, including “Le Temps, vite”, held in 2000.

In 2002, he edited the reference work L'art du XXe siècle (1939-2002): de l'art moderne à l'art contemporain (20th-century art [1939-2002]: from modern art to contemporary art).

Since 2004, Daniel Soutif has been working on more personal projects: as an art critic and as curator of the exhibition “The Jazz Century”, prompted by his passion for jazz, on the subject of which he also writes for Libération newspaper and Jazz Magazine.
