Saturation curator's tour Tour by Oona Doyle, every Saturday in July at 4pm
Join us for a tour of the group exhibition Saturation by its curator, Oona Doyle, every Saturday in July at 4pm at Thaddaeus Ropac Paris Pantin.
Saturation brings together two generations of contemporary artists whose works explore new forms of experimental, gestural or lyrical abstraction. Major figures associated with Abstract Expressionism – Martha Jungwirth, Wook-Kyung Choi and Dona Nelson – dialogue with a younger generation of artists: Han Bing, Mandy El-Sayegh, Rachel Jones, Megan Rooney and Thu-Van Tran.
‘Saturation’ refers to the expressive power of colour: in colour theory it describes the degree of a colour’s intensity or the degree to which it differs from white. Saturation also evokes our contemporary condition, characterised by the overflow of information and a feeling of emotional and mental overload, which, according to the sociologist Monique Haicault, particularly affects women. The exhibition thus chooses to present the work of women artists, decentering abstraction from a historically male-dominant perspective.
