Artists and Architecture, Variable dimensions, is an exhibition based on the conviction that artists highlight and reveal potentials capable of enriching and transforming our shared ambitions to build together the world city of tomorrow. Fifty-six works by French and international artists, both renowned and emerging, have been brought together to question and challenge issues in Architecture at the Pavillon de l’Arsenal, Paris
Artists and Architecture, Variable dimensions includes installations, videos, sculptures, sound devices, drawings, photos, and paintings presenting an archipelago of creations. The works question and redefine the issues of architecture not only in its physical substance but also as a social organisation. The exhibition explores the physical and virtual fluxes – urban times and public usage – temporality and globalization – the place of nature – the collaborative economy where spaces and measurements interact. This new urban landscape also reflects on the role played by cities, urbanism and buildings in the practical and conceptual research of contemporary artists.
