The curating/creating exhibition presents artists who, in parallel with their artistic activity, are also curators. These artists also write theoretical texts about their own work and often that of their peers. They work in informal groups, often forging personal links with one another. The exhibition concerns their commitment to curatorial activity.

Salon des Réalités Nouvelles 2019

2019 / 19 -21 October


Qu'est-ce que l'Art abstrait  non-figuratif et non-objectif ? Sans lien avec le monde des apparences extérieures, c'est, pour la peinture, un certain plan ou espace animé par des lignes, des formes, des surfaces, des couleurs, dans leurs rapports réciproques et, pour la sculpture, un certain volume animé par des plans, des pleins, des vides exaltant la lumière. ...

First MANIFESTO of the Salon des REALITES NOUVELLES, 1948

What is non-figurative and non-objective abstract art? Unrelated to the world of external appearances, it is, for painting, a certain plane or space animated by lines, shapes, surfaces, colors, in their reciprocal relationships and, for sculpture, a certain animated volume. by planes, solids, voids exalting the light.


Art et Mathématiques - 4e Festival [en]quête de Sciences - Université de Caen

2022 / 9 - 22 march

Les œuvres de 27 artistes contemporains sont reproduites dans cette exposition internationale, proposée par la Bibliothèque Madeleine Brès dans le cadre de la “Semaine des mathématiques 2020”. Chaque artiste expose une œuvre qu’il a choisie et qui illustre sa propre manière d’employer les mathématiques dans son processus de création artistique.

Le panorama international d’artistes contemporains qui sont rassemblés dans cette exposition se situe dans la lignée de ces mouvements tout en poursuivant un travail exploratoire. En effet, tous ces créateurs emploient les mathématiques comme prétexte ou bien comme justification ; mais outre cela, ils ont bâti des protocoles personnels qui mêlent parfois plusieurs notions, ou qui découlent des récentes avancées en mathématiques.


The works of 27 contemporary artists are reproduced in this international exhibition, proposed by the Madeleine Brès Library as part of the “Mathematics Week 2020”. Each artist exhibits a work that he has chosen and which illustrates his own way of using mathematics in his artistic creation process.

The international panorama of contemporary artists brought together in this exhibition is in line with these movements while pursuing an exploratory work. Indeed, all these creators use mathematics as a pretext or as a justification; but in addition to that, they have built personal protocols which sometimes combine several notions, or which result from recent advances in mathematics.

Art et Mathématiques at the INSPE Normandie in Rouen

" Mathematics is a discipline in its own right, but it has a unique property of dissemination: all sciences use it with great benefit.

Their distribution does not stop there, quite the contrary. Indeed, they have long been intimately linked with the major arts: Pythagoras and his disciples explained musical harmony to us through numerical relationships, and the architects of Antiquity still surprise us with the extent of their knowledge.

The international contemporary artists brought together in this exhibition use mathematics as a pretext or as a justification. But beyond that, they have built personal protocols which sometimes combine several notions, or which result from recent advances in mathematics.

Thus, throughout the exhibited works, you will not only encounter geometric shapes and proportions, but you will also guess the presence of sequences of natural numbers, irrational numbers, topology, combinatorial algebra, random simulation or more statistical models."

By Jean-Luc MANGUIN, GREYC laboratory, University of Caen.
