Following on from Résonance-Part 1, an extensive exhibition devoted to the Frac Normandie Rouen’s recent acquisitions (2013-2017) and 
currently being held at the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Rouen, Résonance-Part 2, is an opportunity to pursue, at the Frac, the same theme-based presentation to illustrate the main focal points of its collection. While Résonance-Part 2 takes the same approach, with references to works from the holdings of the Réunion des Musées Métropolitains Rouen Normandie, it also explores new lines of enquiry, notably into the new implications of colour and abstraction.

The Frac’s substantial, wide-ranging collection of over 2,300 works by 600 artists enables it to organise frequent dissemination projects throughout the Normandy region. The main chapters of Résonance have been devised on the basis of these many and varied exhibitions and the constantly renewed study of its collections. Part 2 again considers the body, but using a more morphological approach that revolves around the mask, Nature and how it—inexorably today—relates to illustration and cartography, utopian spaces of the artists’ studio, but also to writing through new graphic systems, and the blank page. Further, echoing the Frac’s objective, since 2010, to open up its collection to forward-looking perspectives for drawing, painting, and especially photography, the last sections are given over to the importance of black, colour, as well as abstraction in its most recent pictorial and photographic developments.

With over 130 works—drawings, paintings, sculptures, photographs, videos, installations and books—from the Frac and the Musée des Beaux-Arts
de Rouen, the exhibition calls on the work of internationally renowned artists, such as Thomas Struth, James Welling, Jean-Luc Moulène, Silvia Bächli, Mark Dion, Michael Riedel, Hans-Peter Feldman and Thomas Huber; established artists in France and Normandy, including Charles Fréger, Berger&Berger, Damien Cadio, Cécile Bart and Isabelle Le Minh; young talents such as Aurélie Sement, Terencio González, Pauline Bastard, Camila Oliveira Fairclough and Matan Mittwoch. Interspersed with older works, ranging from the 17th century with Otto Vaenius, to the early 20th century with Jacques Villon, the exhibition continues the transhistorical exploration initiated in Résonance-Part 1, with regard to the resolutely overarching nature of contemporary works.
