Noémie Lepron’s proposed design for Abstract Room mobile exhibition space
WHO WE ARE
Abstract Room is an international project & label. It was founded in December 2015 and is driven by a french non-profit organization. Abstract Room’s goal is to identify & promote novel practices in contemporary abstraction. Its main activity is to curate & organize exhibitions and to produce & publish critical material, with an educational approach.
Abstract Room’s first project, Everyday Abstraction : Images at Work – curated by Dorothée Deyries-Henry – was launched in May 2017 in Paris.
OUR mobility principle
Mobility is a key principle for Abstract Room: the exhibitions will tour several cities and will be staged in pop-up galleries or in Abstract Room’s own mobile exhibition space which is under development in cooperation with the National School of Architecture of Strasbourg. The main idea of the mobility principle is to bring art to the public and not the public to the art.
OUR exhibition format
Mobile exhibitions have no start-date, no end-date, but a theme and a curator. Exhibitions are shown over several years, in several locations (Paris, Berlin Zurich, Bruxelles, London…), for short durations. Critical material is developed for each exhibition, in different formats (printed books, e-material). Exhibitions will be allowed to evolve with time, to reflect new developments in their subject field.
