‘Beating the Time of the Sky’, by the artist Tony Soulié

From 5 May to 19 September 2021*
‘Beating the TIme of the Sky’, an exhibition by the artist Tony Soulié

To mark the 40th anniversary of the Festival musical d’Auvers-sur-Oise, the Château d'Auvers will be hosting an exhibition by the painter Tony Soulié (the festival’s artist of honour) from 5 May to 19 September 2021. In keeping with the musical focus of the festival, the exhibition is called ‘Beating the Time of the Sky’.

Tony Soulié is part of the French ‘New Abstraction’ movement of the 1970s and 1980s. A painter, poet and photographer, he aspires to ‘be in harmony with the space and time of our age’ and travels the world to appropriate it into his vision. He has featured in hundreds of exhibitions around the world and his work is now part of many public and private collections.

Painting is an integral part of his travels to the extreme landscapes of deserts, volcanoes, coastlines and megapolises where he seeks out ‘the boundary states of the world’.

He paints, photographs and creates ephemeral installations that underscore our fragility and impermanence in the face of the elements.

Times: from Wednesday to Sunday and on bank holidays from 2pm to 6pm (closed on Monday except for bank holidays and on Tuesday). The exhibition follows the government’s decision to allow cultural venues to reopen in Ile-de-France and Val d'Oise
