Exhibition: XXL Estampes monumentales contemporaines
Musée des Beaux-Arts de Caen
25 May – 15 September 2019
Le musée des Beaux-Arts a choisi d’explorer le monde de l’estampe contemporaine en s’intéressant en particulier aux productions les plus spectaculaires et les plus hétérodoxes. Cinq cents ans après Albrecht Dürer, dont le monumental Arc de triomphe de Maximilien I assemblait pas moins de 36 feuilles imprimées, les artistes plébiscitent plus que jamais le grand format, l’estampe n’étant plus depuis longtemps un instrument de diffusion de l’image mais bien un champ d’expérimentation et un moyen de faire oeuvre. Dépasser les règles de l’édition commune conduit à s’emparer de toutes les techniques sans a priori, des plus traditionnelles (gravure sur métal et sur bois, lithographie, sérigraphie…) aux plus novatrices (photogravure, tirage numérique, papier mural…), à jouer avec les limites de l’estampe (gigantisme, support autre que le papier, sérialité, collage…), à interroger enfin les modes de représentation comme les systèmes de fabrication des images. Beaucoup d’acteurs majeurs de l’art de ces cinquante dernières années ont relevé ce défi tout autant intellectuel, visuel, technique et économique, parmi lesquels Pierre Alechinsky, Georg Baselitz, Christiane Baumgartner, Pierre Buraglio, Daniel Buren, Gunter Damisch, Jim Dine, Franz Gertsch, David Hockney, Frédérique Loutz, Julie Mehretu, Richard Serra, Jose Maria Sicilia, Frank Stella, Antoni Tàpies, Djamel Tatah… et bien d’autres présents dans l’exposition.

Exhibition: Seurat to Riley: The Art of Perception
Compton Verney Art Gallery
8 July – 1 October 2017
Compton Verney’s summer exhibition will take you on a fascinating and stimulating journey that looks at the ways in which our visual perceptions have been explored by artists. From the Impressionists onwards, artists have been inspired by historical and contemporary colour theories -most markedly seen in the pointillist work of Georges Seurat and his associates, where colours other than those actually painted on the canvas are generated in the eye of the beholder. During the 20th century, the scientific and philosophical interest in perception extended into ways of communicating movement via static art forms. Artists such as Helen Saunders, M.C. Escher, Josef Albers and Victor Vasarely variously used tessellation – patterns created by using identical shapes – mathematics, and often colour, to convey the sensation of movement.
The ‘Op Art’ movement from the 1950’s to the 1970’s made stars of Bridget Riley, Carlos Cruz Diez, Jesus Rafael Soto and Julio Le Parc, Peter Sedgley, whose work will be on show in Compton Verney, as will that of their successors, Christiane Baumgartner, Liliane Lijn, Rodney Graham, Daniel Buren, Sara Moorhouse, Luthar Götz, Liz West and Jim Lambie.
