The Cultural Affairs Bureau(IC, from the Portuguese acronym) presents the exhibition “Plis & Replis 3－Works by Noël Dolla”, showcasing 32 works by French artist Noël Dolla. Part of the associated Project of the Le French May Arts Festival, the exhibition is organized by IC and co-organized by the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macao, the Alliance Française de Macao and the Bernard Ceysson Gallery, and will be inaugurated on Friday, 24 June, at 6:30pm, at Tap Seac Gallery.
Noël Dolla is the youngest member of the Supports/Surfaces group. In the early 1960s, he participated in the process that led the new phase of the avant-garde art movement. Breaking with the traditional form of the picture, his works were then made of mundane materials, discarding the usual materials and structures and using abstract painting to represent his reflexions and studies on the essence of painting. This exhibition features Noël Dolla’s works over 40 years of his creative career. His works from 1960s to the present feature a unique and diverse style, which inspire the audience to reflect. The exhibition also comprises photographs of a wide array of works exhibited by Noël Dolla around the world, thereby hoping to introduce to the public the painter’s diversity of works and creative ideals as well as share the vitality and creative thinking of this French artist.
The organizer hopes this exhibition can show the rich and varied fruits of French art. The exhibition “Plis & Replis 3－Works by Noël Dolla” will be held from 25 June to 9 October, at Tap Seac Gallery, located at No. 95, Avenida do Conselheiro Ferreira de Almeida. Admission is free. The exhibition is open daily from 10am to 9pm. Admission is free.
