After major renovation work, La Patinoire Royale / Galerie Valérie Bach reopened its doors in April 2015. This cultural and commercial space presents a multifaceted programme of group and solo shows featuring artists of different nationalities and generations. The focus alternates between emerging and established artists while more historical retrospectives revisit the modern era. For this 2019 edition, the gallery presents a tribute to the Franco-Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz Diez (Caracas, 1923), one of the most important protagonists in the field of Kinetic and Optical art, a movement that encourages ‘an awareness of the instability of reality’. In parallel, the gallery has invited the young American artist Gisela Colon (Vancouver, 1966) to exhibit works specially created for the event, which connect with and respond to the Venzuelan artist’s work.
