Noémie Lepron’s proposed design for Abstract Room mobile exhibition space
Abstract Room is based on a mobility principle and will stage its exhibitions in pop-up galleries or in its own innovative mobile exhibition space that is currently being developed 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 art. The mobile space will be positioned in front of museums, art centers, galleries, schools, universities… during existing events (openings, fairs, conferences, private events, etc…), and will travel to different cities (Paris, Berlin, Brussels, London, Geneva, Strasbourg…). Pop-up galleries will be set-up in prime locations in city centers.
The use of the mobility principle will result in a redefinition of the exhibition format. Mobile exhibitions will have no start-date, no end-date, but an exhibition number, a theme and a curator. Exhibitions will be showed over several years, in several locations, for short durations. Critical material will be 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.
Below are some of the mobile space designs that have been developed for Abstract Room:
