EYES LIES and ILLUSIONS Werner Nekkes Antique Projection and Film equipment exhibition. Eyes, Lies and Illusions contains more than 500 historic objects, books, prints, instruments and optical ephemera drawn from the Werner Nekes Collection. This extraordinary collection began in the mid-sixties when Nekes, a German experimental filmmaker and professor, started collecting examples of optical phenomena as teaching aids. The Nekes Collection has since grown to become one of the world's most important and encyclopaedic private collections of pre-cinematic media, housing more than 20,000 objects. LAHUMIERE GALLERY Geometric Art Anne and Jean-Claude Lahumiere founded Galerie Lahumiere in 1963. After 25 years staying next to the Parc Monceau in the 17th arrondissement from Paris, they moved to an 18th century building in the heart of the historic Marais district, a stone's throw from the Picasso Museum. The gallery participated in the emergence of the first international art fairs in cities such as Basel, Paris, Cologne, and Chicago. In the past forty-five years, the gallery has attended at an average of five fairs per year. From 1993 to 2004 Anne was president of the French association of art galleries (CPGA). In 1999, she was elected president of the European Federation of Art Gallery Associations for three years, later she was part of the Conseil des Ventes (organization of control for the auctioneers in France) during four years. Since many years, Galerie Lahumiere has strengthened its commitment to geometric and "constructed" abstraction. It represents not only historic artists within this movement "” Cahn, Dewasne, Gorin, Herbin, Legros, Magnelli, and Vasarely "” but also contemporary and vanguard artists such as Bauduin, Bezie, Bodde, Coignet, Dubreuil, Gasquet, Jacquier-Stajnowicz, Perrot, Pondruel, Popet, Prosi and Stempfel. "More and more," say the Lahumieres, "our role involves mounting educational exhibitions, reinforcing the image of little-known artists. We feel that the concept of 'constructed' art is still consistently creative at the start of this new millennium despite the development and constant rejuvenation of the art scene, convincing us of our commitment. The gallery puts its weight behind every work. Our criterion of quality is simple -- we ask whether a work has a place in our own collection, and at that point we can sell it to a collect
