« Let yourself be trapped by James Coleman's optical illusions through a unique exhibition! »

Since the early 1960s, James Coleman has been interested in the image and perception in general, asserting a legacy of the psychology of form. His interdisciplinary work deconstructs the functioning of images by mixing the practice of painting, photography and film. A practice from which his name cannot be dissociated. His projected images have left their mark and inspired many contemporary artists, such as Douglas Gordon and Tino Sehgal. James Coleman's unique installations earned him the right to represent his native country at the 1973 Paris Biennale. The erasure sequences mixed with still images and desynchronised sounds lead the viewer's gaze through the dramaturgical staging of social scenes. For this retrospective dedicated to the Irish artist in Gallery 3 of the Centre Pompidou, a 21-minute podcast will accompany your visit. Online booking is mandatory (link in the bio)!
