Paris and Tel Aviv-based Galerie Charlot celebrates its tenth year with an anniversary exhibition in Paris, featuring the work of currently represented artists, and showing the diversity of approaches to media over several generations.
Exhibiting artists include Anne-Sarah Le Meur, Antoine Schmitt, Dominique Pétrin, Eduardo Kac, Eric Vernhes, Flavien Théry, Laurent Mignonneau & Christa Sommerer, Manfred Mohr, Nicolas Sassoon, Nikolas Chasser Skilbeck, Quayola, Sabrina Ratté, Thomas Israel, Zaven Paré.
Since 2010, Galerie Charlot has been developing its program on the relation between art, technology and science, showing established, mid-career, and emerging artists spanning a range of media from traditional to experimental.
This 10th anniversary comes at a moment when media art is gathering newfound attention, thanks to landmark exhibitions in the last few years, such as “Electronic Superhighway (2016)” at the Whitechapel Gallery, “Artists & Robots” at Grand Palais (2018) or “Programmed: Rules, Codes and Choreographies in Art” at Whitney Museum (2019).
While the earliest works in the show date to the beginning of the 1970s (Manfred Mohr’s algorithmic drawings), works by emerging artists–including Quayola, Sabrina Ratté, Flavien Théry–showcase how a new generation of artists are engaging with contemporary technology. In their respective practices, these artists employ 3D software, computer-generated animation, three-dimensional laser scanning, and the mechanism of perception..
