Atelier 37.2 opening of their upcoming installation "Les Premiers Visiteurs" conceived for the "Abattoirs" - contemporary art center of Toulouse Metropole - opening tomorrow on March 23rd, 2013.

Sixty wooden walking sculptures will arrive in Cugnaux : in between abstraction and figuration, these protean sculptures, built out of rough wood, appear to share the same DNA – Giacometti’s “Walking man” DNA. They form a strange procession heading to the new cultural centre’s building site. They symbolise the first visitors, making a dent into the urban landscape, and triggering inhabitants about their own intimate fictions.

Art
Schwitters in Britain is the first major exhibition to examine the late work of Kurt Schwitters, one of the major artists of European Modernism. The exhibition focuses on his British period, from his arrival in Britain as a refugee in 1940 until his death in Cumbria in 1948. Schwitters was forced to flee Germany when his work was condemned as ‘degenerate’ by Germany’s Nazi government and the show traces the impact of exile on his work. It includes over 150 collages, assemblages and sculptures many shown in the UK for the first time in over 30 years.

Schwitters was a significant figure in European Dadaism who invented the concept of Merz – ‘the combination, for artistic purposes of all conceivable materials’. Whether those materials were string,...
