About the show
Paris-based Openspace gallery launches its very first non-commercial show out of the gallery space. This event will please all the art lovers. An art dialogue between XXth and XXIst centuries, between the master of abstraction painting, František Kupka, and urban artists.
František Kupka spent more than 50 years in Puteaux near Paris and he died overthere in 1957. With the Les Enfants de Kupka event, the city of Puteaux wants to put his art legacy in light around a transversal proposition.
Artist Frantisek Kupka sent many lessons to subsequent generations of artists throug his total freedom in the approach to light and color, looking for a dynamic movement and above all though his researches in the development of the abstraction. Many visual and conceptual connections thus appear between the universe of the Czech master and this young generation of contemporary urban artists here represented by Polish artist Robert Proch, Spanish Kenor and Czech Jan Kaláb.
Curated by Nicolas Chenus and Samantha Longhi, directors of Openspace gallery, and on an original idea by Olivier Landes at the head of the association Art en Ville, and in collaboration with the Opocno museum, the exhibition Les Enfants de Kupka takes place in the Mairie de Puteaux and gathers a dozen of contemporary works of artist sJan Kalab, Kenor and Robert Proch, replying to works by František Kupka (original paintings and reproductions of art quality.
