La Couleur crue
from 12 June to 29 August
Musée des beaux-arts, Rennes
as part of Exporama
In response to the exhibition Au-delà de la couleur, le noir et le blanc dans la Collection Pinault (Beyond colour: black and white in the Pinault Collection) at the Couvent des Jacobins, Rennes’ Musée des Beaux-arts (Museum of Fine Arts) is hosting a major exhibition dedicated to La couleur crue (Pure colour) from 12 June to 29 August. An artistic journey into the heart of matter.
“Matter, materials, the immaterial: dematerialisation is the common theme in La couleur crue. Here, the matter of colour takes form in a variety of media, such as painting, sculpture, objects, text, sound, installations, but also in video and in material and personified works, whether immaterial or conceptual, immersive or head-on”, explain the three organisers of the exhibition: Jean-Roch Bouiller, director of the Musée des Beaux-arts, Sophie Kaplan, director of La Criée centre for contemporary art and Anne Langlois, artistic director and head of exhibitions at 40mcube. Together, these three Rennes-based associations created La couleur crue through an approach that is sensitive to the matter of the works and the experience of visitors looking at them.
