Reiffers Art Initiatives - "Infiltrées, 5 manières d'habiter le monde" Exhibition
The exhibition "Infiltrées - 5 manières d'habiter le monde" highlight the artistic process of five emerging artists from the contemporary scene: Meriem Bennani, Han Bing, Bianca Bondi, Binta Diaw and Ser Serpas.
The exhibition invites the five artists to take over the Acacias Art Center - whose new architecture will be revealed on this occasion - to display works that are almost entirely new. Artists who are not content to simply engage with the world, but who work just as hard to reconfigure it aesthetically and conceptually to propose other visions and other ways of making the world, together. At the end of the exhibition, one of them will be awarded the Reiffers Prize. With the support of Mazarine Group and La Mode en Images.
For the second edition of the Reiffers Art Initiatives Prize, the artistic committee members chose five emerging artists from the contemporary scene. This new group exhibition highlighted the artistic approach of these young talents. This year's prize goes to the artist Serpas.
The artist's works form abstract poems that tell of our relationship with our environment and our ability to make it our own, to reassemble it as much as to sublimate it. Represented by Galerie Balice Hertling, the artist is not content to simply grapple with the world, but works just as hard to reconfigure it aesthetically and conceptually, to propose other imaginaries and other ways of making the world, together. Voted for by the public and the Reiffers Art Initiatives artistic committee, the work of this young American artist living in Paris was singled out for its artistic approach and the sensitivity of its works, which faithfully reflect the tensions shaking today's society.
Reiffers Art Initiatives is a foundation created to support young contemporary creation and cultural diversity.
Reiffers Art Initiatives’ mission is to support France’s new art scene and give it international visibility. It finances and gives exposure to thirty emerging artists every year, who will influence tomorrow’s contemporary art scene.
Acacias Art Center - "Reflections Redux" Exhibition
Acacias Art Center is pleased to present "Reflections Redux", an exceptional exhibition by Benjamin Millepied and Barbara Kruger that combines holographic projections, films and immersive scenography.
The event was inaugurated on the occasion of FIAC week 2017. Within Acacias Art Center, the impressive visual environment imagined by artist Barbara Kruger for her ballet "Reflections" (2013) was recreated for the occasion.
Invited to enter the Acacias Art Center, totally redesigned for the occasion, the visitor is plunged like a dancer into the heart of Barbara Kruger's scenography. The 3-dimensional reactivation of the ballet is complete: light effects, music and especially holographic projection of four scenes from "Reflections". The dancers of L.A. Dance Project dancers appeared in the form of holograms to realize key moments of the ballet within the exhibition.
