Contemporary Drawn
An Arts décoratifs course
(March, 17 – June, 26 2016)

Result of a selection carried out in close collaboration with the – young and “historical” – art galleries to be featured in the tenth edition of Drawing Now Paris, this exhibition, covering the spaces dedicated to post-1940 collections of the Museum of the Arts décoratifs, questions a contemporary drawing on the brink of the beautiful and the useful. An abstract of different generations of artists at work, the exhibition, built on the identity of the graphic gesture, questions the legacy and influence of the ornamental repertoire of the home, the city and the body on a contemporary creation whose interdisciplinarity mixes the codes of Art, Design and Industry
