GUIDED TOURS IN FRENCH
Get a chance to visit our latest exhibition with an exclusive guided tour in French! Get precious info about the artworks presented and the committed French postindustrial visual artist behind them, Aurèle Ricard.
Aurèle Ricard is a French postindustrial visual artist. His "LostDog" is a trademark, his yellow a color of hope. Aurèle is the prototype of a generation of artists driven by on-the-ground action more than by a simple arty attitude, a way of being more that a way of showing. Enraged and committed artist, Aurèle comprehensive work conveys a message of urgency and resistance to the plague of an era of which his "LostDog" becomes the symbol. Aurèle has been developing, for more than twenty-five years, the same radical project of denouncing modern wanderings. Its goal: to mobilize present and future generations in the face of wars, epidemics, ecological catastrophes, political and media excesses, precariousness and exclusion, inequalities and overconsumption. In Aurèle's world, art confronts reality and thereby becomes a true "mirror of modernity”.
Since the 1980s, he continuously exhibited his Lost Dog around the world to raise awareness.
