Exhibition from June 4 to October 2, 2022

On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, the Bouvet Ladubay Contemporary Art Center pays tribute to the French artist Guy de Rougemont (1935 – 2021), through a retrospective exhibition from June 4 to October 2, 2022.

"Guy de Rougemont invented a galaxy made of cylindrical shapes, ellipses, totems, serpentine lines, which offers a polychrome symbiosis between minimalism and pop art" Renaud Faroux, art historian
This exhibition, organized on the initiative of Benoît Lemercier, artistic director of the Center – honors the complete and prolific artist that was Guy de Rougemont, thanks to a rich selection of works retracing all of his creations. : Volumes, paintings, cylinders, watercolors and artists' furniture.
The diversity of the selected pieces, iconic or more intimate, offers a marvelous panorama of the artist's multidisciplinary artistic practice.
The exhibition highlights his talent as a painter, through his first vinyl paintings on canvas, the starting point for the exploration of shapes and lines that would later make him famous.
The exhibition also showcases the designer talents of Guy de Rougemont, although he would prefer the term “artists’ furniture” for his creations. They testify to the artist's desire to bring art into everyday life and to make it accessible to all.
Guy de Rougemont has already been exhibited at the Bouvet Ladubay Contemporary Art Center in 1995.

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."
