Musée des Confluences in Lyon, France will host an exhibition entitled Art and the Machine from October 13

Running until January 4, 2016, the exhibition examines the relationship between the gaze of the artist at the machine and the evolution of industrial and mechanical technology from the 18th century until today. It reveals the constant link between machines and the plastic arts, drawing the visitor in to examine these ties further.
