A MACHINE DESIRE INSTRUCTION AS A GARDEN DESIRE DISCIPLINE

FRAC LORRAINE, METZ

A machine desires instruction as a garden desires discipline examines the mechanisms underlying modern capitalist Europe. Catalina Lozano invites us to reexamine and reevaluate historical facts and their present consequences (Keiller, Kirschner & Panos, Plender). Documentary narratives (Farocki), anthropological discourse (Alves & Durham, Satorre), and metaphorical propositions (Lin, Weber) are combined in order to deconstruct Eurocentric certitudes.

How does self-submission to fundamental dualism continue to persist?

How do conventions and commands become interiorized? This is a true call to dismantle and perhaps do away with the binary vision of the world…

THE ETRUSCANS AND THE MEDITERRANEAN. THE CITY OF CERVETERI

LOUVRE-LENS

A new portrait of the city of Cerveteri

The exhibition presents Etruscan civilisation in its Mediterranean context, through the history of one of its largest metropolises: Cerveteri. This city is the only one whose evolution we are able to retrace from its origins to the Roman conquest, and show in all its aspects: the city of the living and its necropolises, its political organisation and its relations with the East, Greece and Rome.

By comparing pieces from the major historical collections for the first time with the results of archaeological excavations conducted in recent decades in the heart of the ancient city and in the surrounding area, the exhibition will be able to draw a new portrait of this great city and illustrate the prestige and position it enjoyed in ancient Italy and the Mediterranean.

CAPC - 40 YEARS

BORDEAUX

The CAPC started out as a Centre of Contemporary Visual Arts, before becoming a museum in 1984. For forty years it has been firmly rooted in the present. This is a direction which the physical power of the Entrepôt—the former warehouse housing the CAPC—has inspired and splendidly represented for four decades, broadcasting an exemplary pioneering and international programme. Forged by contemporary cultures, the CAPC is a place for one and all, in which an apprenticeship in the challenges posed by culture proceeds by way of a discovery of the art of our time.

SIGMAR POLKE

MUSEE DE GRENOBLE

The Sigmar Polke exhibition features nearly 70 paintings and some fifty works on paper in a layout that is rigorously chronological but flexible enough to allow this body of work to be deployed with the same freedom that informed its making. The exhibition starts with the emblematic painting Hands, which the artist placed at the entrance to the German Pavilion at the 1986 Venice Biennale. Depicting a group of people covering their faces with their hands, this black-and-white painting is based on a photograph whose grain Polke enlarges in his characteristic way. The message that the artist addresses to the viewer about the question of the gaze could hardly be more ambiguous – an ambiguity that not incidentally runs through all of Polke’s oeuvre, as a deliberate reflection of the ambiguity of reality.

LA MAISON GOUPIL AND ITALY

GALERIE DES BEAUX-ARTS, BORDEAUX

In autumn 2013, Bordeaux will host an exhibition on the famous Groupil & Cie, a successful art dealership which employed many French and foreign artists, particularly Italian. The art dealer Aldophe Goupil (1806- 1893) commissioned scenes from the Antiquity or the 18th century, urban views and vibrant landscapes, which became very popular and valued by collectors, critics and European art dealers. This practice responded to the international enthusiasm for collecting art, whose influence would last well into the 20th century.

A TRIPLE TOUR, WORKS FROM THE PINAULT COLLECTION

CONCIERGERIE

This exhibition is the first presentation in Paris of the important group of works from the Pinault Collection. Their choice is naturally, focused on the theme of confinement as it seemed desirable to establish a strong resonance between the contemporary works and the imposing frame of the Conciergerie whose history hides a bloody past: during the revolution it served as a prison for those condemned to the guillotine.

JOHN CURRIN

GAGOSIAN, PARIS

 

Currin's latest paintings present an increased complexity of background treatment. In Tapestry (2013), a casually dressed modern woman is portrayed in his signature baroque style; her torn jeans and bohemian, peasant-style blouse contrast with the elaborate manner in which she is painted. Her exquisitely sharp, brightly colored figure stands out within a fluid, grisaille-like setting of floral patterns, light fabrics, and blurry bodies joined in sexual ecstasy. Conflating a heady mix of historic technique, humour and fantasy, Currin continues to provoke and titillate.
