    From 6 February until 3 May 2015 Nick Oberthaler will participate in the group exhibition "RIDEAUX/BLINDS" at the Institut d´Art Contemporain Villeurbanne/Rhône-Alpes. The show questions the legacy of modernism, of abstraction and of the monochrome, ownership of what remains, the film of images in an awareness of the means of mechanical reproduction; painting with photography, film and screens.

    "RIDEAUX/BLINDS" organizes the space into a path wherein the works of art become structural links. They limit and create the space, they dialogue with the walls, and the holes in the walls. Perhaps the idea is to turn the space inside out, like a glove, and enter through the back of the painting, from behind the fence, from the other side of the canvas." (Marie de Brugerolle, art historian and exhibition curator).
