Description

The plastic arts and industrial technologies have long had a complex relationship. They have passed in turn from indifference to hatred, from fascination to collaboration, while waiting for adoption or even fusion. It is this history, these links, that will be presented in this catalogue.

Art and the Machine explores the evanescent border between scientific activity, technology and artistic practice. Through the historical evolution of this relationship, it is the question of the place of the machine in our society that is thus raised. Since the 1990s, we have witnessed a rapid and unprecedented mutation of our society: globalisation and computerisation are turning our planet upside down. Modern art has not escaped this accelerated change. Its foundations, laid at the beginning of the 19th century, are undoubtedly undergoing profound changes.

By confronting works of art and elements of industrial production, the role of the machine, born of the industrial melting pot, will be highlighted.
