Martha Wilson à Halifax 1972-1974

20 October 2021 - 31 January 2022

Musée National d'Art Moderne - Centre Pompidou, Paris

Martha Wilson is a unique personality in the history of American art, and one of the first artists to use her body to question social representations of women. Her pioneering work created in the early 1970s can be categorised as conceptual practices with a radical irony. Featuring more than forty works, the Centre Pompidou is the first French institution to dedicate a monographic exhibition to her.

Guerrilla Girls. Portfolio Compleat

18 June - 24 October 2021

Centro de Creación Contemporánea de Andalucía, Córdoba

"Do women have to be naked to get into the Met. Museum?"

The Guerrilla Girls emerged in New York in 1985 as an anonymous artists' collective dedicated to feminist activism. Known for using gorilla masks to cover their faces, the group's members take on the names of deceased women artists like Frida Kahlo, Eva Hesse, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Käthe Kollwitz, Gertrude Stein and Georgia O'Keeffe, thereby concealing their true identities from the world and promoting the achievements of those women.

In its more than 35 years of existence, the collective has produced countless posters, books, stickers, drawing projects, graphic publications and magazines about sexism and discrimination against women in the visual arts, film and culture in general. Portfolio Compleat includes this entire repertoire, where they appropriate the visual language of advertising and marketing to communicate their messages in a clear, direct way.

Curator: Yolanda Torrubia.

The Fountain Archives and Beyond

18 June 2021 - 30 January 2022

Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Barcelona

In 1917, a work entitled Fountain, consisting of an upturned urinal signed R. Mutt, was submitted to the first exhibition of the Society of Independent Artists of New York. Under this pseudonym, Marcel Duchamp tested the limits of the exhibition’s admission policy, supposedly open to any proposal and inspired by the motto of the Salon des Indépendants in Paris: ‘no jury, no prizes’. By selecting an ordinary object, a found object, Duchamp sought to destroy the notion of the singularity of the object of art. Fountain was rejected, just as Nu descendant un escalier (N°2) [Nude descending a staircase (No. 2)] had been rejected by the Salon des Indépendants in Paris in 1912. Duchamp then decided to orchestrate the Fountain’s presentation through a publication in The Blind Man, a magazine of which he was a co-founder. The original work disappeared and was never found again. Therefore, it is from a reproduction (a photograph by Alfred Stieglitz) accompanied by an anonymous commentary (‘The Richard Mutt Case’) that Fountain enters the history of art. Since then, Duchamp’s Fountain has generated countless comments and has become one of the most influential works of art of the twentieth century.

Saâdane Afif has turned the printed dissemination of Fountain into a monumental project. The Fountain Archives consists of three elements: the first, the ‘active’ part of the project, consists of the pages of publications, books, catalogues and magazines that reproduce a photograph of this iconic piece. The pages, taken from the collection of publications that the artist has been collecting since 2008, are torn out, framed and inventoried, creating a new readymade from one of the earliest and certainly the most iconic readymades in the history of art.

The second, the ‘passive’ part of the project, which Afif also calls the ‘mould’, is the library with the books from which the pages were taken. The shelves create an archive around Duchamp’s readymade, from which the common initiator has been removed: an archive without its object. This presentation of the library – complete for the first time in the installation at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies – by depriving the publications of their usual function, also gives it a sculptural character.

The third element, called Fountain Archives (Augmented), integrates the pages of publications with the comments generated over the years by Saâdane Afif’s work, illustrated with a reproduction of Fountain; the archive within the archive, in a kind of mise en abyme. These publications point to an evolution in the development and perception of The Fountain Archives as a work of art.

Appropriating inventory methodologies and playing with traditional museographic codes, Afif questions the production system, the status of the work of art, its reproducibility and the infinite field of its interpretations, as well as his formidable ability to produce narratives.

True to his way of doing things since 2004, Saâdane Afif has also commissioned several cultural producers to write lyrics based on Fountain for this project. A selection of these songs is part of the exhibition.

Journiac / Wilson / Levine / Sherman / Prince / Lawler

22 May - 31 December 2021

Bourse de Commerce - Pinault Collection, Paris

In 1977, critic Douglas Crimp coined the term the "Picture Generation", which encompasses figures like Cindy Sherman, Louise Lawler, Richard Prince and Sherrie Levine. In their work, the photographic image is no longer merely a result but a stage in a critical process involving actions like appropriation, staging, reframing and quotation. For Martha Wilson, a leading figure of feminist art in the United States, and for French artist Michel Journiac, photography became a weapon in the struggle against the stereotypes that it had helped establish in other contexts. In the form of photographic installations rather than autonomous images, these works are a kind of experiment, allowing the spectator to investigate different interpretations of the images. Michel Journiac, Louise Lawler, Richard Prince, Sherrie Levine, Cindy Sherman and Martha Wilson move away from the use of photography as a simple record of reality. For them, the photographic image is no longer just a form of evidence or proof of reality. Freed from its shackles, it can now be used to create forms of fiction, challenging notions of identity, and raising new questions about art, gender and identity.

Yona Friedman, The Mobile Exhibition

10 April - 12 December 2021

FRAC Grand Large - Hauts-de-France, Dunkerque

Curators: Sylvie Boulanger, Keren Detton, Lucy Hofbauer

The architecture of survival provides food for thought to Yona Friedman on our fundamental needs in an ecosystem subjected to the rarefaction of resources. Born in 1923 in Hungary, he had started studying architecture in Budapest when WWII erupted. As a refugee in Romania, he lived in camps for the displaced before finally settling in Israel where he lived in a kibbutz and returned to architecture. It was in these conditions that he developed his original approach to habitat based on user experiences. In 1957, he founded the Mobile Architecture Study Group (Groupe d’Étude d’Architecture Mobile – GEAM) and promoted the use of flexible structures made of prefabricated elements. His ideas caught the attention of leading figures including Le Corbusier and Jean Prouvé, who invited him to move to France. From then on he relentlessly transmitted his ideas throughout the most renowned universities in both Europe and the United States and wrote profusely, publishing over 500 articles and books.

The Empty City - Solo Show

19 March - 5 September 2021

Museo Bellas Artes de Bilbao

"The projects by Antoni Muntadas (Barcelona, 1942) include multimedia installations, photographs, publications, performances and urban interventions, and they represent one of the most important contributions to international conceptual art practices. The artist is also a touchstone in the use of video and the new technologies in Spanish art from the early 1970s. His oeuvre addresses topics related to politics, social issues and communication, always with one foot in anthropology, sociology and cultural history.

In The Empty City, Bilbao and its current urban plan, as well as its historical context, are the point of departure for a broader inquiry into public space and architecture. Curated by Guadalupe Echevarria, the outcome is a project comprised of several components, as is common in Muntadas' works. "

Frac des Pays de la Loire

To mark the reopening of the Frac site in Carquefou after having been closed for over a year for major work on its collections, the Frac des Pays de la Loire French Regional Collection of Contemporary Art is hosting an exhibition project by artist Claude Closky, entitled X.

"When Laurence Gateau invited me to create an exhibition based on the Frac des Pays de la Loire collection, I designed a project revolving around temporal rhythms, using works from the collection, which I supplemented with pieces loaned from other artists, some of whom are already featured in the Frac and others who are not. What all of these works have in common is the fact that they look at the course of everyday life, the effect of time on work, or that they adopt a specific timeline in their modes of display. The viewing systems implemented throughout the exhibition, from November to June, will give visitors the chance to explore two forms of temporal pace in the work: the portrayal of the passage of time and the time required to accomplish the artistic act. The installation layout of the works will itself be conditioned by the length of the exhibition, thus allowing each work to have its own rhythm. The sequential parts of a series or individual components of a work will always be presented separately: one a day, one a week, one a month, and so on. This method of displaying each element in turn will highlight the actual duration of the time spent working. And in this staggered arrangement, each piece will carry the same value as the ensemble. This approach seeks to shed light on how the works are streamed over time rather than their spatial occupation, focusing attention on the actual moment of experience as much as on its occurrence. It gives the installation layout a performative dimension. In addition, the exhibition will present original works, editions and reproductions of works in equal measure. This equilibrium is a way of setting time before space, and also of relegating to the background an object's tangible expression and rarity. The title X ("multiplication" and "choice") gives shape to the spatial aspect of the exhibition display."
