The Tania Mouraud retrospective at Centre Pompidou-Metz will expand into the city of Metz from June 27th, incorporating eight partner institutions and venues.
Diverse aspects of Tania Mouraud's work will be presented, expanding on the exhibition at Centre Pompidou-Metz. This will take the visitor on an extended walk through the city to exhibition spaces at Arsenal – EPPCC Metz en Scènes, Chapelle des Templiers, Église Saint-Pierre-aux-Nonnains, Faux Mouvement – Centre d’art contemporain, Frac Lorraine, Musée de la Cour d’Or – Metz Métropole, Toutouchic and Octave Cowbell art galleries.
The artist's emblematic works will be revealed throughout the urban landscape and workshops with the artist herself will be offered to students at École Supérieure d’Art de Lorraine in the scope of a one-year collaboration.
Extended patronage by Frac Lorraine has intricately linked Mouraud's work and artistic career to the city of Metz since 1990s, starting in 1995 with the acquisition of City Performance N°1, a major work from 1970s. This work consists of 54 billboard signs with the word “NI” (meaning neither/nor) printed in 4x3m and placed throughout the city of Paris. Further support from Frac Lorraine came in 2005 with the monumental project titled HCYS?. This large-scale work covers a blind wall at the Musée de la Cour d’Or. The City Performance N°1 poster campaign will be revived throughout the city of Metz and its suburbs within the framework of Tania Mouraud. A retrospective.
