"Opaque Transparency" a project by ParisCONCRET Curated by Richard van der Aa July 2015

 "Opaque Transparency" a ParisCONCRET project
Curated by Richard van der Aa July 2015

"The exhibition Opaque Transparency presents work by a select group of 14 artists who have used monochromatic means to reach their goals. I don’t believe artists set out to make monochrome paintings – rather they find themselves at that point after following the logic of their own trajectory. They have arrived there from widely differing starting places. The exhibition explores a rich variety of expression which exists within seemingly narrow parameters. Opaque Transparency will be accompanied by an essay by Roland Thompson. The ParisCONCRET association exists to foster an international dialogue and collaboration amongst artists working in the field of non-objective art. After presenting continuous exhibitions in their Paris space from 2009 to 2014, directors Richard and Anna van der Aa decided to change the format of the association’s activities. Opaque Transparency at Look & Listen is the first manifestation of the ParisCONCRET curatorial initiative since closing the doors at rue des Immeubles Industriels in June 2014
