Designing the Living
20 Feb 2019 – 15 Apr 2019 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Discover an archaeology of living things and artificial life in an exhibition that presents, in a forward-looking manner, the recent works of fifty creators along with the research coming from scientific laboratories. The very material of the exhibition is evolving, certain works being involved in a process of growth or degeneration. One hundred projects are exhibited, several of which have been designed for the occasion
“Mutations/Creations”, the annual creation and innovation laboratory at the Centre Pompidou questions the links between the arts, science, engineering and innovation. The cycle brings together artists, engineers, scientists and entrepreneurs, all the protagonists of the sensory and the intelligible, who affect and transgress our present. For its third edition, the event brings together the visual and digital arts, design and speech, in the course of a collective exhibition: “Designing the Living [La Fabrique du Vivant]”, the first personal and monographic exhibition in Europe of the Brazilian artist Erika Verzutti, and the third edition of the Vertigo forum, conducted by the Ircam.
