Waiting for the revolution
Curators: Christophe Gallois and Enrico Lunghi
Sanja Iveković, a central figure on the Croatian art scene, has developed an engaged artistic practice since the early 1970s, animated by questions of genre, media, identity, and the public and private spheres. Her exhibition at Mudam - a decade after her unprecedentedly controversial public space project Lady Rosa of Luxembourg, which addressed the often -overlooked role of women in wartime - will present a large panorama of her works realised from 1975 to the present.
The sky is glowing with the setting sun
Curator Enrico Lunghi
Combining photography, video and audio elements, the installations of English artist Emily Bates are the fruit of long-term research in specific geographical contexts, often marked by the transition from traditional cultures to modernity. Her Love Scenes, project, presented in 2008 at Casino Luxembourg, thus addressed the Naxi minority culture in China, while The Nurturing Island concerns a tropical island in the south of Japan. Emily Bates was invited to create a new project for her exhibition at Mudam.
In conjunction, Emily Bates is showing The Nurturing Island in the premises of our partner Arendt & Medernach until 26/08/2012
With the support of Mondriaan Fonds
Curator Clément Minighetti
Filipa César examines a particularly important period in the recent history of her homeland, Portugal: the end of the authoritarian Salazar regime and decolonisation of Guinea-Bissau. Three films based on contemporary documents or interviews with activists of the time - Porto, Le Passeur and The Embassy - form the core of the exhibit, which also includes a facsimile of Aimé Césaire’s book Discurso sobre o colonialismo and related posters.
Steven C. Harvey
Curator Clément Minighetti
The futuristic vehicles which feature in the work of the British artist Steven C. Harvey, who is based in Athens, describe the contours of a “dystopian” world. The artist sees in his pieces “lamentations on the contradictions of the western world and the over-consumption of world resources, a crisis of which our vehicles are only a symptom”. His extremely precise graphite drawings evoke the universe of a science fiction writer like J. G. Ballard.
How to be alone when you live with someone
Curator Marie-Noëlle Farcy
The graphic compositions by the British artist Simon Evans combine drawings with fragments of words and relate to diaries, automatic writing, collage, lists, inventories, encyclopedias, diagrams, cartography, cosmology... The exhibition at Mudam will involve the production of new pieces.
