Yona Friedman, The Mobile Exhibition

10 April - 12 December 2021

FRAC Grand Large - Hauts-de-France, Dunkerque

From APril 10 to December 30th, 2021
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

From March 19th to September 5th, 2021

"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. "

Città Irreale

6 February - 16 May 2021

Kunstmuseum St.Gallen, Switzerland

From April 6th to August 8th, 2021

With works by Nina Beier, Christoph Büchel, Bob Gramsma, Alex Hanimann, Sara Masüger, Jessica Stockholder.

The exhibition Città irreale combines large-scale and sculptural works from the collection of the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen which relate to a social context. The architectural modules range from elementary dwellings (Büchel, Masüger) to aspects of global mobility (Gramsma) to an environment composed of objects from everyday life (Stockholder).

Nina Beier's metal pedestal objects from existing horseman monuments will bring attention to the discourse about monuments in public space. Alex Hanimann's life-size figure ensemble Conversation Piece, which depicts five young people in typical poses of Generation Z, will bring the exhibition out into the foyer of the Ostschweizer Fachhochschule.  The House of Friction (Pumpwerk Heimat) by Christoph Büchel in the neighboring water tower functions as an oppressive and uncomfortable installation that makes challenging references to domestic life.

It never ends

4 February - 7 March 2021

Kanal, Centre Pompidou, Brussels

From February 4 to March 7, 2021

Christian Marclay's work which stands at the crossroads of visual arts and sound, has focused since the late 1970s on the connection between music, objects, films, and images. Organised around two major works by the London-based Swiss American artist that were produced two decades apart, this exhibition reveals the artist's continued focus on the musical symbols present in our everyday lives, like the many calls to act out our existence. Ephemera, a vast score, the composition of which is based on photos that were discovered, enters a dialogue with a spectacular installation called Musical Chairs, inspired by the children's game of the same name. It is a nod to the chair events of the Fluxus artist George Brecht.

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."

Hanging for 20 years of the Prix Marcel Duchamp

21 October 2020 - 15 March 2021

Centre Pompidou, Paris

On the occasion of this anniversary, nineteen works by winners of the Prize are presented on level 4 of the contemporary collections, accompanying the exhibition of the four shortlisted artists for the 2020 edition in Galerie 3. Coming essentially from the collections of the Musée National d'Art Moderne, the works are shown in the course of the visit. In some cases, they strike historical echoes, as in the case of Julien Prévieux or Mathieu Mercier dialoguing with Marcel Broodthaers, and in other cases form autonomous paradigms, like Tatiana Trouvé and Cyprien Gaillard. Attesting to the diversity of the French artistic scene, this retrospective of the Prix Marcel Duchamp also presents the basis for a history of art in the making.

Each July, the selection of works is being rearranged, according to a different key word. While some pieces simply move to new positions within the space, most return to storage. Works from the depot are frequently hung next to recent acquisitions. In this, Erika Hoffmann creates new relationships in unexpected contexts and sets out to recognize unexpected meaning between works of distinct generations and mediums.

Allan McCollum: Works since 1969

26 March 2020 - 17 January 2021

ICA Miami - Solo show

ICA Miami presents the first US museum retrospective for American artist Allan McCollum. Since the late 1960s, McCollum has created works that examine the art object's relationship to uniqueness, context, and value, as well as to the museum that collects, values, and preserves it. This exhibition surveys McCollum's output over more than five decades, and makes inquiries into the artist's series of "regional projects" created since the 1990s. In his work McCollum has used the idea of the collection to explore how we remember, care for, and privilege various material artifacts.

The Penultimate Version of Reality - Solo show

7 March 2020 - 31 January 2021

MACVAL - Vitry-sur-Seine

MAC VAL is putting on the first monographic museum show by the artistic duo Brognon Rollin (born, respectively, in 1978 and 1980, in Belgium and in Luxembourg), a mixture of new and older works.
Behind the exhibition title, taken from Borges, there is a simple, yet dizzying question: "Is reality soluble in its representation?" Does reality exist outside its representations? What role do time and perception play? And relativity? And its spatial dimension? How do we give form to the experience of duration? Or waiting? Of suspension? Of balance?

Brognon Rollin?s projects are densely intertwined narratives inscribed in the history of minimal and conceptual art. Combining symbols, events, objects and anecdotes that are in principle unconnected and sometimes fantastical, the works are powerfully polysemous supports for unfolding lines of flight imbued with melancholy and poetry. _ What we see is only the tip of the iceberg. A clock freezes when the viewer approaches it in the constrained space of a cell (8m2 Loneliness); a line sitter occupies the space of a museum until the voluntary departure of a person reaching the end or their life (Until Then); the duo makes an actual-size tracing of the island of Gorée and then store it, fragment by fragment, on a shelf (Cosmographia); in Jerusalem, on a football pitch whose geometry is deformed, children calculate the position of the centre circle (The Agreement).

Waiting, confinement, the status quo and fragility are at the heart of their obsessions, leading them to explore intermediary spaces: addictions, the sacred, prisons, islands, etc.

By shifting these pointers, by bringing into play a change of perspective, the artists postulate that a fall can resemble soaring, and vice versa. A theatre spotlight positioned over the exhibition reveals no show. Is resilience child's play? Do statues have a life? Is there something new under the sun? What happens when my eyes are looking elsewhere?

Between Philip K. Dick, Stefan Zweig and Jorge Luis Borges, David Brognon and Stéphanie Rollin explore the interstices of time. The works in the exhibition can be experienced like so many spatio-temporal fault lines and, in the end, encourage meditation on the programmed disappearance of all things.
