Summer 2021 in Rennes will be devoted to contemporary art. In response to the theme of black and white in the Pinault Collection at the Couvent des Jacobins, Rennes Musée des Beaux-arts has designed an experience based on the topic of “La couleur crue”.
“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, new director of the Musée des Beaux-arts, Sophie Kaplan, director of the 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”.
- La Couleur Crue, from 12 June to 29 august 2021 at the Musée des Beaux-arts in Rennes, 20 quai Emile Zola. Tickets are valid for access to the two exhibitions.
