REGINA JOSÉ GALINDO’S PERFORMANCE “TIERRA” REMAINS RELEVANT ONCE AGAIN

The presentation of Regina José Galindo’s work marks the beginning of a series of collaborations between MoMA and MoMA PS1 aimed at showcasing works from the Museum of Modern Art’s collection. «I think it is a very timely piece,» says the Guatemalan artist. «All the conflicts occurring in the world are over land; land is the greatest value in the universe,» she comments.

LACAN, THE EXHIBITION. WHEN ART MEETS PSYCHOANALYSIS

Curated by Marie-Laure Bernadac and Bernard Marcadé, the exhibition at the Centre Pompidou-Metz was the first dedicated to Jacques Lacan. Over 40 years after the psychoanalyst’s death, it seemed urgent to plan an exhibition highlighting the unique links between Jacques Lacan and art, by putting into perspective the works he himself referenced, the artists who paid tribute to him, as well as the modern and contemporary works that can provide an echo to the great conceptual orientations of his thought.

ECHOES OF THE BROTHER COUNTRIES

The exhibition and research project “Echoes of the Brother Countries” is dedicated to the often overlooked political, economic, educational, and artistic links, as well as the exchange and migration movements between the GDR and other socialist-orientated states, the so-called brother countries.

RE-COLLECTIONS

«Re-collections» surveys cultural extraction, Eurocentric archeology, and biased museology.  Echoing an increasing demand for the restitution of looted cultural artifacts and monuments, the exhibiting artists unveil co-opted narratives obscured under the lens of ethnographic scholarship.
