L’envol is the final exhibition at La maison rouge, which will close its doors for the last time on October 28, 2018. Antoine de Galbert has invited Barbara Safarova, Aline Vidal and Bruno Decharme as co-curators. Together, these specialists in art brut and contemporary art have imagined an exhibition that examines mankind's dream of flying – though without any reference to those who have actually made this dream come true. As always at La maison rouge, the curators have considered the subject matter independently of “categories” to bring together works of art brut, modern, contemporary, ethnographic and folk art. A walk through the various themes reveals a succession of some 200 works, including installations, films, documents, paintings, drawings and sculptures.

The history of collage as an artistic practice in its own right begins in the 20th century, in the framework of the avant-garde and unfolding by conceptual art practices. Up until the beginning of the 20th century, the collage has only appeared marginally in European Art. Since the first collages in the practice of the Avant-garde, the technique has penetrated into the very heart of the artistic system. Along with film montage, collage represents the artistic language, medium and procedure of the 20th century that underwent major changes.
The exhibition (REZ) CUT – Examples of collage in artistic practices in Central and Eastern Europe from the Avant-garde until today explores relations of collage in contemporary artistic practices following a historical trajectory of the avant-garde art that saw the emergence of experiments in collage / montage as radical artistic language, in relation to economic, ideological and institutional framework.
