Mutations / Creations 3

Mutations / Creations 3

Decidedly forward-looking, Mutations / Creations is the annual creation and innovation laboratory at the Centre Pompidou, exploring the ties between arts, science, engineering and innovation. It brings together artists, engineers, scientists and entrepreneurs, all the stakeholders in the ‘sensitive’ and the ‘intelligible’ which shape and infringe upon our present. Following a first edition in 2017 devoted to design and manufacturing trends in 3D printing, a second edition in 2018 exploring the history of digital code and its artistic appropriation since the 1960s, this third edition examines the living and its protocols of (re) creation. At the crossroads between disciplinary fields, Mutations / Creations 3 summons up visual and digital art, design and speech through a group exhibition, "La Fabrique du vivant" [The Fabric of the living], the first European monographic exhibition on Brazilian artist Erika Verzutti, and the third edition of the Vertigo forum, organised by the IRCAM Institute.
