AN EXHIBITION AT THE INTERSECTION OF ART AND SCIENCE
FROM NOVEMBER 5TH 2016 TO APRIL 23TH 2017
Organized jointly by the Fondation Gandur pour l'Art (FGA) and the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), the exhibition Noir, c’est noir ? Les Outrenoirs de Pierre Soulages presents new avenues for the understanding, presentation and conservation of works of arts.
Five laboratories and several startups from EPFL have dedicate their research and technologies to explore a novel approach of the work of Pierre Soulages, a major figure in abstract painting.
While the French painter has ventured into Outrenoir, that is to say ‘beyond black’, he seeks above all the light that is revealed through it, thereby, considering light as a material.
With this new confrontation, this exhibition provides an innovative perceptual experience, on the edge of art and science.
