« Futures, from the city to the stars: Matisse, Mirò Calder » at the Centre de la Vieille Charité, Marseille.
In 20th century, the ascension of science and its hold over the industrial sector, technology and architecture inspired a number of artists and opened their imagination.
Through anticipation and evasion, artistic representations drove a visionary aesthetic, imagining what the future might be or what it could have been the present. From the first representations of new metropolises to the fascination with spatial conquest, the exhibition highlights an artist’s fascination with innovation to do with architecture, robotics and spatial imagery. It focuses upon an upward progression inspired by three great founding titles from the world of literature and cinema of the utopian city in Metropolis, to the robotic universe of The War of the World, and onto the cosmos depicted in The Odyssey of Space.
Until 27th September. B.D www.marseille.fr
