ONGOING EXHIBITION

The Projective Drawing

From the 28th of June to the 20th of September

Collective exhibition

Curator: Brett Littman

The Drawing Lab Paris invites Brett Littman, Director of the Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum and former Director of the Drawing Center in New York, to redevelop the collective exhibition The Projective Drawing, which was on-view at the Austrian Cultural Forum from February to May 2018.

Inspired by Robin Evans’ book The Projective Cast, published in 1995, the exhibition explores the same theory: a new way of “seeing” architecture that challenges our understanding of how drawing techniques work in contemporary culture. The works on display invite visitors to contemplate the essentially partial and unfinished nature of the drawing.

Élisée, une biographie

From the 13th of October 2019 to the 4th of January 2020

Florentine & Alexandre Lamarche-Ovize

Curator: Solenn Morel

“The exhibition Elisée, une biographie, aims to reconstitute a concentrated landscape, reconciling the absolute and the fragment. The floor, walls, ceiling are invested. The visitor is surrounded, everywhere by flowers, sky, mountains, streams, trees. They are drawn, painted, serigraphied, printed. […] This imagination, which acts at the heart of any artistic experience, is more than ever called upon here. It connects, it brings together what is separated. Élisée, une biographie, is one of these moving worlds, its abundance introduces an inexhaustible freedom of connections.”

Solenn Morel, curator of the exhibition
