Follia Continua !
Les 25 ans de Galleria Continua
Past: September 26 → November 22, 2015Follia Continua ! — Le 104 Organiser l’exposition d’anniversaire d’une galerie au sein d’une institution telle que le 104 pose question. Sans invalider d’emblée cette collusion et, surtout, l’absence fondamentale de thématique, l’exposition « Follia Continua ! », avant même que de s’ouvrir, porte en elle une problématique qui reflète les enjeux de l’art d’aujourd’hui.
Centquatre-Paris invites Galleria Continua to celebrate 25 years of artistic madness.
To celebrate 25 years of adventure, projects, sharing and madness, it is just natural for Galleria Continua to invest in the walls of Centquatre-Paris, with which it has collaborated for several years.
Works by each artist represented by Galleria Continua, and works equal to the scale of Centquatre-Paris, at once monumental and immersive artists such as Anish Kapoor, Berlinde De Bruyckere, Ai Weiwei, Antony Gormley and Daniel Buren…
The exhibition Follia Continua ! 25 years of Galleria Continua works by each of these artists, curated and in resonance with Centquatre-Paris. The exhibition will tackle themes close the hearts of the artists and gallery : relationships between people, their place in a globalized world, but also their dreams, sense of humour and beyond.
The number of works presented, and the exceptionally monumental scale of certain among them, makes this exhibition an event unto itself. The exhibition equally integrates itself into the themes of the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP21, exhibiting works that invite discussion on important social and environmental issues facing society.
