‘A century of light and motion in art, 1913-2013.’ Opening tomorrow is this fascinating show examining notions of space, vision and light in art. The two main parts ‘Vision’ and ‘Space’ are divided into 16 subsections dealing with various aspects of phenomenal experience: immateriality, monochrome, interference, immersion, flickering, haziness, instability, distortion, the void, the invisible and permutation, from artists including Ann Veronica Janssens, Anish Kapoor, John Armleder, Carsten Höller, and Xavier Veilhan. The exhibition ends with the earliest period and the forerunners of the movement such as Marcel Duchamp or Alexander Calder and others, who were the first to try to express a profoundly abstract, dynamic, immaterial conception of reality through painting, sculpture or film. Also look out for the installation by Fujiko Nakaya “Cloud Installation # 07156, Grand Palais, Bassin de brouillard” outside in the Square Jean Perrin. Plus there’s a program of monthly parties Dynamo Live in collab with We LoveArt starting Tue 30 Apr!
