In the 1920s, when the initiative of Moly-Sabata began to appear, Albert Gleizes felt the need to submit his artistic practice to laws. He isolates two basic principles called translation and rotation, specific to the advent of the object-table. The Gleizian rule will then influence several generations of disciples, applying this composition exercise. In honor of Moly-Sabata’s cofounder, the exhibition “Translation et rotation” brings together ten artists who have resided in our workshops over the decades, in celebration of a joyous geometry and pictorial gymnastics.
“Translation et rotation” with works by Arnal, Gilka Beclu-Geoffray, Elisabeth Meyer, Baptiste Rabichon, Samuel Richardot, Octave Rimbert-Rivière, Lise Roussel, Superscript² and Sarah Tritz by Joel Riff, the curator of this exhibition.
As part of its partnership with Art-O-Rama, Moly-Sabata receives the winner of the Prix Région SUD, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur 2019 for two months of residency in its workshops. This working time allows the artist to prepare his solo for the Art-O-Rama edition of the year following his appointment. This is the second edition of this partnership, having awarded Jonathan Vidal in 2018.
