L’art et la machine, Musée des Confluences, Lyon, France
from 10/13/15 to 01/24/16
L’art et la machine présente la relation étroite entre le regard de l’artiste sur la machine et l’évolution des technologies industrielles et mécaniques, depuis les planches techniques de l’Encyclopédie au XVIIIe siècle, jusqu’à aujourd’hui, à l’ère électronique.

Le parcours de l’exposition révèle les liens constants qui existent entre les machines et les arts plastiques. Le regard du public oscille ainsi à chaque instant entre l’esthétique mécanique et son interprétation artistique. Il est invité à partager tour à tour la fascination, l’inspiration, la collaboration jusqu’à la rêverie et la création de chimères de l’artiste.

Plus de 170 pièces remarquables issues de 44 musées en Europe sont ainsi
réunies pour la première fois. Sur plus de 1 500 mètres carrés d’exposition.


Luminós/C/ity.Ordinary Joy: From the Pigozzi Contemporary African Art Collection, Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA
from 10/21/14 to 01/08/15
"We are pleased to announce that the Ethelbert Cooper Gallery’s inaugural exhibition will comprise selections from the Jean Pigozzi Collection of Contemporary African Art (CAAC). David Adjaye, the renowned British-Ghanaian architect and the designer of the Cooper Gallery and the Hutchins Center façade, also serves as co-curator of this first exhibit, along with Mariane Ibrahim-Lenhardt. Adjaye heads a curatorial team that offers a unique dialogue between art and space that we think will set the tone for exhibitions to come. Luminós/City.Ordinary Joy will feature 69 works by 21 artists. It illuminates the everyday, ordinary, and ubiquitous world of the city characteristic of so many of the works in Pigozzi’s collection, evoking a sense of place and facilitating a dialogue between body, home, transit, and dynamic urban dwellings. The models, sculptures, photographs, paintings, and videographies of vital city life will convey a vibrant urgency to the Gallery’s visitors."

Opening in fall 2014, the newly established Ethelbert Cooper Gallery is one of eight flagships of the Hutchins Center at Harvard University. It will feature both contemporary and historical exhibitions and installations of African and African American art of a global diaspora. The innovative and distinctively designed gallery exhibit spaces will house shows organized by curators, faculty, artists, students, and distinguished guests. The gallery will host a wide range of dynamic workshops, artist talks, symposia, lectures and performances to engage audiences with diverse art archives and cultural traditions from all over the world.
