What’s going on?
Marvin Gaye’s album “What’s Going On” delivered the sublime message of universal love, perfectly expressed on the album’s cover art with an expressionless, yet serene,
face standing in the rain.
This is the attitude called for by the Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation. Forgotten songs are reawakened from the United States (with the historic exhibition Dancing In The Street: Motown’s 60th anniversary’s exhibition and Matthew Casteel’s American Interiors), China (Dominique Laugé’s Les Nouvelles Routes de la Soie), Ukraine (David Denil’s Let Us Not Fall Asleep While Walking), Brazil (What’s Going On in Brazil, a work in progress by the landé collective), Italy (Yvonne De Rosa’s Negativo 1930) and Taiwan (Isa Ho’s Peony, Chia Huang’s Errances, Hou I-Ting’s Embroiderers of the Past).
“After the success of the Patrick Willocq show in 2018, we are pleased to partner again with the Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation”, comments Erik Wiegman, Managing Director of Universal Woods EMEA. “The skilfully curated exhibitions provide us with the ideal platform to show our product at its best.”
"We are delighted to be producing the prints for a second year running at the Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation. The music of Motown has played such an important part in the lives of so many people around the world. The Foundation is going to be one of the top venues to visit at Arles 2019”, states Peter Boodts, ChromaLuxe Marketing Manager for the EMEA region.
