Trophée des Arts 2009
"France, and Paris in particular, have been an artistic home to me. I have presented in Paris over 35 works since Deafman Glance in 1971. No other city, no other country knows my work better."
"I am not someone who likes the limelight, I would rather achieve things. My mission was to transform Wyeth into a powerful research engine: we expanded early into biotechnologies and gave the world new vaccines to fight mortal illnesses such as the pneumococcal disease, which kills 600,000 children in the world every year."
"Along with Robert Wilson, FIAF is also very proud to honor the highly successful career of Bernard Poussot, who has exemplified the American dream and has brought France and the United States even closer."
"Bob Wilson is a magician, a childlike genius, a man that is having fun, a painter that slowly deploys his great arm and at the end of which the interpreter feels himself created, redefined."
