Rrose c'est la life Agnès Thurnauer

Exhibition from July 3 to October 3, 2021

Franco-Swiss artist Agnès Thurnauer presents Rrose c’est la life, a personal exhibition. This solo show presents a collection of works, paintings and sculptures, from five series: Mapping the studio, Paintings of History, Life-Size Portraits, Matrices / Assises and Predelles.

The diversity of selected pieces, iconic or more intimate, including unpublished works never shown, offers a marvelous panorama of the practice of Agnès Thurnauer observed through the prism of the color pink.

For Agnès Thurnauer, the relationship to the work always induces a form of reciprocity. If the work reads the world, it's up to each of us to read it for ourselves. This shared language is at the heart of society and gives art a powerful poetic and political function.

Opening times :
Tuesday to Saturday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Sunday from 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The idea behind the creation of the Art Centre

centre-d-art-contemporain centre-d-Art-de-Nuit---Sophie-Boursier GALERIE-NUIT Hypercube2
The idea behind the creation of the Art Centre is to revive the pleasures and the spirit of the Renaissance right in the very heart of the Loire Valley.
Officially opened in 1992 under the patronage of Gonzague St Bris, a French writer and journalist, and with Benoît Lemercier as Artistic Director, there are nine exhibition rooms and a lobby-library, covering almost 800m2 (8,600 sq. ft).
"We have contributed, modestly but with enthusiasm, to opening up the world of contemporary art to both the local population and to visiting tourists," says Benoît Lemercier. "The wide range of exhibitions we program means that a visitor can confront a work directly, can love it or not, in any case to refine one's own taste and thoughts."
