Curated by independent curator C. M. Turner (Camden, ME), Beacon is a conceptually driven group exhibition exploring objects, subjects, spaces, and ideologies that guide us through everyday life. Featuring ten artists of diverse backgrounds working with lens-based media, Beacon prompts viewers to consider the ways in which outside forces draw our attention and actions. From wayfinding to advertising, politics to place-making, Beacon explores both the unseen and well-known forces impacting ordinary existence.

Festival Young Creation
«En Être», is the title of the 70th edition of the Jeune Création association, which will take place from September 12 to 26, 2020. More than 190 artists of all generations take part in this exhibition circuit in four venues: the Cabane Georgina in Marseille, the Espace Niemeyer in Paris, the Jeune Création gallery in Romainville and the Thaddaeus Ropac gallery in Pantin.
?En être" (In Being) echoes desire, simplicity and doing things together. The responsibility of today?s world belongs to us. This ritual recreation, rich of 72 years of history, will sing the joys and anxieties of the world, its deaths and its rebirths. We will be fairies and we will be witches. With bits of string, it is possible to weave, create and gather what is scattered. The history of art, uncertainties, testimonies, transmissions, attempts, successes, mistakes confront dreams and reality. In what, with whom, how and for what reasons? The future will tell us.
Photography to the test of Abstraction
The exhibition is dedicated to the issue of abstraction in the field of contemporary photography. Riemer?s unique approach to photography creates atmospheres, which combine the past and the future. Whether the works were recently taken by him, or he used images from photo archives and added his own take on them, they all have a sense of timelessness, allowing for both the future and the past to enter.
This exhibition is part of the 4th edition of the festival "Normandie impressionniste" and will take place in 3 locations:
Frac Normandie Rouen,
Micro Onde - art center,
and Centre Photographique d?Île-de-France
A bilingual catalogue is published by edit.Hatje Cantz
