Titled L’OUVRE 9: Open the Louvre’s 9th Art Comic Collection, the exhibition is now being held at the Museum of Taipei University of Education (MoNTUE). Japanese and Taiwanese design studio Noiz was responsible for the interior of the museum, completed in 2012, and now the studio has designed the space for the exhibition.
In collaboration with curators Fabrice Douar and Lucie Lom, Noiz has incorporated a flying ribbon structure to guide visitors on a journey through the exhibition, where they can view cartoons displayed throughout. Fabrice Doura came up with an idea of continuous folded paper book, extending like a long stripe of ribbon to act as a display table for various art pieces. The structure is created from a folded aluminum plate, pre-bent and assembled on-site.
Large prints are suspended from the ceiling and walls are used to divide the exhibition spaces loosely, which helps visitors go through the exhibits more easily.
The exhibition celebrates and displays unique cartoon arts collections of Louvre Museum, including works by prominent artists Enki Bilal and Hirohiko Araki, and local Taiwanese cartoonists.
Venue: Museum of National Taipei University of Education (MoNTUE), Taipei, Taiwan
Date: Until 28 February 2016
