The book goes trough Miguel Chevalier’s exhibitions and digital installations all throughout the world.
This monographic book provides an overview of the artistic world of Miguel Chevalier. It sheds light on the original approach he has developed based on digital tools along with his evolution over the last 18 years (2000-2018) and his questioning of art and the contemporary world. Readers are invited to discover a fertile imagination that is both innovative and rooted in the art history of the 19th and 20th century.
A preface by Jérôme Neutres (Strategic and development Director of the RMN-Grand Palais and curator of many exhibitions such as Bill Viola, Helmut Newton, Robert Mapplethorpe) and an interview of David Rosenberg (exhibition curator and author) bring an interesting perspective on Miguel Chevalier’s career and work.
The main themes of his art are explored through four chapters printed on different fluorescent-colored papers: Flows and Networks, Digital Arabesque, Nature and Artifice, Meta-territories.
