Kalos Kagathos deals with the processing of the material, spatiality and composition. And more widely in distant reference, to a search for balance and harmony as hardware, internal and globally, that can remember the phrase from the ancient Greek "Kalos kagathos" meaning "the beautiful and the good," an ideal of life aesthetic and pragmatic spirit.

Anaïs Lepage is an independent curator and writer based in Paris.

Her research focuses on excesses and secrets in art history in connection with a history of the affects and spiritualities as well as postcolonial and gender studies. Inspired by radical pedagogies and feminist theories, she questions the forms of speech through collaborations, workshops, and a shift in critical, intimate, and performative narrative.


Trained in Art History at the École du Louvre, in Museum Studies at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), and in Curatorial Studies at the Paris I Pantheon-Sorbonne University, Lepage multiplies experiences in France and abroad.
She started at the Maison Rouge - Foundation Antoine de Galbert in Paris, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Montreal and, alongside Guillaume Désanges, at the Verrière - Hermès Foundation in Brussels. Then, she worked as assistant curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chengdu, the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, and the Louis Vuitton Foundation.

From 2015 to 2020 she co-founded HEIWATA, a curatorial platform based between Paris, Mexico City, and Toronto. She has developed projects with artists such as Madison Bycroft, Julien Creuzet, Gaëlle Choisne, Ad Minoliti, and Rachel Rose, among others. Recently, she collaborated with AICA International, the CNEAI art center, and the Palais de Tokyo. Since 2019, she teaches exhibition curating at the Sorbonne University
