While waiting for the completion of this vast cultural, artistic, architectural, educational and environmental project, Luma Arles has already opened its doors with a program of exhibitions and cross-disciplinary projects presented in the recently rehabilitated spaces of the Parc des Ateliers:
- Presentation of the installation “DO WE DREAM UNDER THE SAME SKY”
Open access. Every day at 11.30am and 2.30pm. Duration: 30 minutes.
Accompanied by a Luma Arles mediator, participants are invited to discover the installation of the conceptual artist Rirkrit Tiravanija and the architects Nikolaus Hirsch and Michel Müller.
- Taste discovery in the installation “DO WE DREAM UNDER THE SAME SKY”
Open access, dishes subject to availability. Every day from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.
A convivial interlude around a dish prepared and shared in the open-air kitchen in the heart of the installation of Rirkrit Tiravanija, Nikolaus Hirsch and Michel Muller.
- Gilbert & George: THE GREAT EXHIBITION (1971-2016). Until January 6, 2019
A large-scale retrospective exhibition on the work of Gilbert & George. The extraordinary collection of more than 80 pieces presented at La Mécanique Générale at the Parc des Ateliers seeks to capture and revel in Gilbert & George’s larger-than-life iconographic universe, exploring English society from the 1970s to 2000s from punks to hipsters, policemen to outsiders, news headlines to classifieds of all kinds.
- Pipilotti Rist, Pixel Forest. Until November 4, 2018
Presented for the first time in France, Pixel Forest is one of the most recent work of Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist. The installation comprised of 3,000 LED lights immerse the viewer in a room-size 3-dimensional video. When walking into this forest of lights, the walls around seem to disappear. Video is used as a source of enlightening radiance that melts tenderly with the surroundings and blurs the lines between object, environment, image, and light.
- Arthur Jafa, APEX. Until November 4, 2018
Presented for the first time in France, APEX is an 8-minutes film with a densely-sequenced concatenation, questioning the universal and specific articulations of Black being in America's cultural history.
- Amar Kanwar, Such a Morning. Until November 4, 2018
In Such a Morning, a renowned mathematics professor retires, cutting his career short rather unexpectedly, and retreats to the wilderness to live in an abandoned train carriage. Thus starts an epic sensory journey into a new plane of emotional resonance between the self and the world around.
- Lily Gavin, Une histoire avec Vincent. Until November 4, 2018
For 8 weeks, Lily Gavin has photographed in 35 mm and 120 mm film on-set stills and behind-the-scenes of Julian Schnabel’s new film about Van Gogh’s life in Arles, At Eternity’s Gate. The series of photographs taken during the film shoot is a result of Gavin’s communion with Schnabel’s vision of Van Gogh’s world.
