Put together this year by French curator, Christine Macel, the exhibition titled Viva Arte Viva, appears to have a focus on the creative act itself, with a broad range of processes on display and an intriguing array of new, barely known artists. This array of technical processes creates a field of depth and interesting textures to explore, much of the work here was three dimensional and some even interactive which allowed us to really get into the art.
