17.03.2017 > 14.05.2017: Biennial of Prints - 11th edition


 

Biennale Gravure LDFrom March 17 to May 14, 2017, the Museum of La Boverie welcomes the eleventh edition of the Biennial of Prints, which will take its quarters in the new glass gallery, an extension of the architect Rudy Ricciotti.  It is therefore the honor—and the challenge—of prints to occupy for the first time this refined space, turned entirely outward.  Its cohabitation with the exhibition "Comic Strip Revolution" presented simultaneously in the upper gallery reinforces a coherence and a complementarity between the most diverse forms of graphic art. 

The Biennial of Prints presents the recent work of 37 artists selected from 550 applications reviewed by a selection board.  As with each edition, a number of countries are present: Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Germany, which are among our loyal partners; but also, some of the farther regions of the world, such as Mexico, Brazil, India, Australia, Estonia, and even Thailand and Malaysia.  In total, a patchwork of current production illustrated through over two hundred works where not only black and white are utilized, but also color, traditional techniques, and special plastic effects. 

Among the novelties to pinpoint: the organizers wished to renew the formula explored during ten editions by proposing to the artists to illustrate a theme: Drift(s), echo of Deviation, rivers surrounding the site of the Museum. Drifting of time, of memory, of feelings, of bodies... each artist can find in it a source of inspiration which corresponds to their sensibility. 

Furthermore, for the first time, the winner selected by an expert jury will be rewarded with the Prix of the Biennial: an amount of €5,000 meant to promote creation.
