Muntadas
...et avec cela?

From November 7 to December 13, 2014
Opening on Thursday November 6, 2014 from 6 to 9 pm in the presence of the artist

Muntadas

A new exhibition by MUNTADAS in Paris, – the previous one, Entre / Between had been presented at the Jeu de Paume in 2012, – ...et avec cela? is an exhibition that is part of a whole that consists of 2 components; the second part, entitled ...et avec ceci?, will be presented at the same time at galerie Gabrielle Maubrie in Paris.

MUNTADAS, a Spanish internationally renowned artist, takes since the seventies an interest in mass media, in hyper-consumption and modern technologies used as tools for perception and manipulation. Well-known for his installations and interventions, the artist also turns to more conventional techniques, such as silk-screening and printing.

...et avec cela? will reveal about twenty artworks that will focus all on the question of language: a first series of works will take an interest in national expressions and in what they represent in terms of identity, four artworks of the On Translation series will handle the problematic of translation, while another series, Close up, will be more concerned with the typographical accidents in the press, which would evoke censorship in History. And finally, three artworks will complete this rich ensemble: Dealings, How much? as well as one of the exhibition’s masterworks, Ordeal of Picasso’s heirs.

imprimés 1973 - 2013 

From January 9 to March 7, 2015
Opening Thursday January 8, 2015 from 6 to 9 pm in presence of the artist

Claude Rutault, Imprimés 1973 - 2013

«[...] for a long time, I have wanted to make a book that would be able to compete with painting, so that written text would not only lead the way to painting, but would exempt us from the need of painting. A book that would have the same visual and material quality, the same irreducible scope as a painting, but with its own weapons, paper ink colors characters typography.», claude rutault, seconde livraison («catalogue» entry) in: la peinture fait des vagues, Brest, Musée des beaux-arts, 2007.

imprimés 1973 - 2013 focuses on a constitutive – and considerable – part of the artist’s work: the written part. Since the seventies, claude rutault turns to various forms of printing (posters, catalogs, books, booklets, invitation cards) in order to diffuse various texts. The idea of publishing and publication are at his work’s core.

The exhibition imprimés 1973 - 2013, produced by le Centre des livres d’artistes, and presented at Saint-Yrieix-la-Perche, will be held at mfc-michèle didier gallery in a version that is adapted to the gallery’s spatial configuration.

Ephemera_4_0510-61_LD.jpg

« Michèle Didier, who knows my great interest for published works, has invited me to imagine an exhibition based on her previously published editions. I thought it would be interesting to work on two motifs characteristic of her program, which seem completely opposed at first glance. The question will be to confront in an intelligible and sensible way the incongruous combination of serial and minimal artworks with erotic rudimentary representations. »

Mathieu Mercier, excerpt of an interview given to L’Officiel, published in the issue of September 2014 The exhibition will also display a selection of artworks chosen from Mathieu Mercier’s private collection, as well as a new publication by the artist produced by mfc-michèle didier.
