Global(e) Resistance

Prochainement

Du 24 juin au 26 octobre 2020

Musée, niveau 4 – Galerie d'art graphique, Galerie du Musée, Galerie 0

 

L’exposition « Global(e) Resistance » examine les stratégies contemporaines de résistance élaborées par de jeunes artistes liés à l'Afrique, au Moyen-Orient et à l’Asie, des années 90 à nos jours. Soit de la contestation politique à l’heure des décolonisations et de l’effondrement du monde communiste, aux relectures actuelles de l’histoire à travers la mise en mémoire et son délitement. Elle démontre comment la résistance s’est également organisée grâce à l’art lui-même, de manière poétique ou discursive.

Du Forum au Musée, ce sont une cinquantaine d’acquisitions, réunies depuis 2013 au sein des collections du Centre Pompidou, qui sont présentées pour la première fois.

Born in Romania in 1876, Constantin Brancusi lived and worked in Paris from 1904 until his death in 1957. In his will, he bequeathed his entire studio to the French state.
An exact reconstruction of this was made in 1997 on the piazza opposite the Centre Pompidou to house his collection, consisting of 137 sculptures, 87 bases, 41 drawings, two paintings and over 1 600 glass photographic plates and original prints.
