An ode to thrills and thrill-seekers, the Motopoétique exhibition presents, through over 200 works, contemporary art in relation to biker culture and poetics – a visual culture. It also explores man’s relationship to machines. For Paul Ardenne, curator of the exhibition and author of Moto, notre amour, ‘the motorbike is paradigmatic of the relationship that man can develop with machines’.
The public is invited to explore or discover this parallel culture through the art works of 42 artists which awaken a sense of nostalgia for the 20th century, as well as providing us with an ultra-contemporary vision. The exhibition features some previously unseen pieces.
