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 venues of the Parc des Ateliers.
Currently at the Parc des Ateliers :
Enclosure, Rachel Rose
In co-production with Park Avenue Armory, Luma Arles presents Enclosure, an unprecedented video installation, designed by American Artist Rachel Rose (born in 1986).
Presented on a specially designed holographic screen, Enclosure tells the story of a theft which takes place in the 17th Century British agrarian world, marking the transition from the feudal system to capitalism. The contemporaries of this period were deprived of their rights, while facing an uncertain future full of fear and theft.
Immersed in a supernatural atmosphere and an imaginary meditation that was inspired by the perception of nature of the time, Enclosure is an immersive installation inspired by a lyrical production, combining close-ups of abstract images with demanding cinematography and an original soundtrack.
50 years, 50 books : Masterworks from the library of Martin Parr
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Rencontres d’Arles, and in collaboration with the Tate, the Luma Foundation presents an exhibition from Martin Parr’s collection of photographic publications. An inescapable part of the festival and a fervent defender of books, the English photographer has assembled, for over 25 years, a rich library of more than 12,000 books. As a reflection of Martin Parr’s particular vision, this colossal ensemble brings together books selected for both substance and form.
