Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University
East Lansing, MI
Project title: Tatiana Trouvé
April 27 - October 27, 2019
Curated by Marc-Olivier Wahler and Carla Acevedo-Yates
The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University (MSU Broad) will present the first-ever major exhibition of the work of Tatiana Trouvé in the United States, from April 27 to October 27, 2019. This project is designed to survey recent works that has been created over the past decade and will recontextualize several important bodies of work from the artist’s career, including drawings, sculptures and installations, in order to highlight the different facets of her practice dealing with architecture, notion of time and space, and systems of categorization and perception. While Trouvé, a previous Prix Marcel Duchamp winner in 2007, has participated in gallery exhibitions in the US, she has yet to have a major museum exhibition, or significant institutional exposure. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.
Museum of Contemporary Art – MOCA Cleveland, for the FRONT Triennial
Project title: Nightlife
July 14 - September 30, 2018
Curated by Michelle Grabner in collaboration with Andria Hickey (MOCA)
As part of Cleveland’s new Triennial for Contemporary Art, MOCA Cleveland will present a major work by Cyprien Gaillard from July 14 to September 30, 2018: Nightlife (2015) is a cinema-scaled 3D film installation immersing viewers in a surreal experience that weaves together narratives, individuals, movements, violence, and place. Nightlife, which was shot at night over two years in Cleveland, Berlin, and Los Angeles, transforms both film and sound into sculptural forms. MOCA’s collaboration with Gaillard marks the first time that this French artist will be shown in the region, and is significant considering the representation of Cleveland in Gaillard’s work.
Cyprien Gaillard was born in Paris in 1980, and currently lives in Berlin and New York, where his broader artistic project centers on an exploration of the built environment. His work reflects upon meanings and memories of monuments and landscapes that have been erased and replaced by the effects of time and social and cultural transformation. Gaillard’s practice spans many media – including photography, installation, etching, painting, sculpture, performance, and public interventions – and is almost always made outside the walls of a studio. Cyprien Gaillard was awarded the Prix Marcel Duchamp in 2011 and this work was presented for the Lyon Biennale in 2015.
MIT List Visual Arts Center
Project title: Kapwani Kiwanga
February 7- April 14, 2019
Curated by Yuri Stone
The MIT List Visual Arts Center will present a solo exhibition of Kapwani Kiwanga (born in 1978, Hamilton, Ontario) in the Spring of 2019. Kapwani is a Paris-based artist who traces historical narratives, excavating and considering the global impact of colonialism and how it permeates contemporary culture. Her work is research-driven, instigated by marginalized or forgotten histories, and articulated across a range of materials and mediums including sculpture, installation, photography, video, and performance. For her presentation at the List Center, she will continue her exploration of architectural histories and their physical and psychological influence: her new work will respond to MIT’s architectural histories and “desired paths”: footpaths of individuals throughout public spaces in Cambridge and Boston in the particular context of the colonial history of Boston. The show will be accompanied by a robust public programs series. Kapwani Kiwanga won the Frieze Artist Award in 2018.
Supports / Surfaces
Collective exhibition with: André-Pierre Arnal, Pierre Burgalio, Louis Cane, Daniel Dezeuze, Noël Dolla, Jean-Michel Meurice, Bernard Pagès, Jean-Pierre Pincemin, Patrick Saytour, Claude Viallat
Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD)
Project title: Supports/Surfaces
February 1 - April 14, 2019
Curated by Elysia Borowy-Reeder and Wallace Whitney
The MOCAD will present the first comprehensive exhibition in the Midwest of the under-known French art movement Supports/Surfaces. In the 1960’s, Supports/Surfaces was a confederation of about 13 artists mostly from the south of France (Nimes, Nice, St. Etienne, etc.) who made work marked by an interest in materiality, an expansive and fluid idea of what a painting could be and a bright lyrical use of color. There was no manifesto, but the writings of and ideas of Freud, Marx, Clement Greenberg and Chairman Mao were tossed together with a deep interest in American minimalism and Matisse, another artist associated with the south of France. This group was interested in making art without slick fabrication, organized on loose permeable grid structure: which implied a stretched canvas and often utilized repeated forms and/or patterning that seemed to offer a humane possibility for both art making and a metaphorical proposal for just society, using everyday items as art materials. The show will be completed by a large panel discussion involving these historical artists, and a site specific piece would be created on the banks of the Detroit River by Noël Dolla to spark a dialogue with the community outside the walls of the museum.
Ulla von Brandenburg
Contemporary Arts Center
New Orleans, LA
Project title: Ulla von Brandenburg's Two Times Seven
March 14 - June 13, 2019
Curated by Andrea Andersson
In Spring 2019, the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) in New Orleans will present Two Times Seven, an exhibition by Ulla von Brandenburg, as part of the building-wise presentation, Hinge Picture, Memory Images. Hinge Picture, Memory Images is a building-wide presentation, comprised of eight individual exhibitions that collectively confront the patrimony of European modernism– with a body of work that evolves from the flat plane of the wall to immersive sculptural environments. The show takes its name from the writings of Marcel Duchamp in The Green Box, a companion piece to his masterwork La Mariée mise à nu par ses célibataires même. In the first floor gallery, Ulla von Brandenburg will produce a large installation of fourteen hanging curtains, suspended found and constructed objects, two-dimensional paintings, and the film “C,U,I,T,H,E,A,KO,G,N,B,D,F,R,MP,L” (2017): this show will literalize the structure of Duchamp’s “pendu femelle”, but in the place of suspended brides, she will hang suspended found and made objects sourced from France and New Orleans. The installation will foreground a history of patriarchy and the structures of power invested in shape, color and adornment. A full color publication, co-published by Siglio Press and CAC will be released on March 2019: this catalogue will serve as a permanent extension of the exhibition.
Moody Center for the Arts, William Marsh Rice University
Project title: Michel Blazy at Night of Philosophy and Ideas Exhibition
January 25 - May 30, 2019
Curated by Alison Weaver and Kimberly Davenport
Together with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, the Moody Center for the Arts at Rice University is hosting A Night of Philosophy and Ideas in January 2019. To enhance the platform for discussion, the Moody has invited the French artist Michel Blazy (b. 1966) to create an original, site-specific installation in the Moody’s central gallery. Blazy’s work has never been exhibited in the United States outside of New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The Moody is honored to have the opportunity to introduce his original vision to new audiences, thereby promoting the cultural dialogue between France and the United States. The commission will remain on view until May 30, 2019.
Throughout his 20 years of career, Michel Blazy has pursued ideas and questions relating to organic matter and life cycles, considering his work as a collaboration with nature and living matter. His work, characterized by a sense of whimsy was presented in the 2015 Lyon Biennale then in the 2017 Venice Biennale. During the show, university classes involving earth science, art history, anthropology and the environment will engage with his work to further their studies and the Moody will host public events that continue the conversation around art and environment.
The Bass Museum of Art
Miami Beach, FL
Project title: Sheila Hicks
April - September 2019
Curated by Silvia Karman Cubiñá
The Bass Museum will present Sheila Hicks’s first solo exhibition in South Florida, and the most comprehensive exhibition of the artist in the United States to date. Organized by The Bass Museum this exhibition will open in April 2019 through September 2019. Comprising over 50 works of art installed in the museum’s main gallery, this exhibition will include newly commissioned site specific installations, sculptures, as well as her smaller tapestry studies, all produced in the last 10 years. Mainly working in large scale textiles and tapestries, the work in this exhibition continues the artist’s exploration of textiles as she challenges the medium in scale, materials, and form.
Guillaume Leblon & Thomas Boutoux
FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art
Project title: Busy Time
July 14 - September 30, 2018
Curated by Michelle Grabner
Commissioned by Front Exhibition Company for FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art, Busy Time is an experimental one-act play project written for the stage by artist Guillaume Leblon and curator and art historian Thomas Boutoux, that will demonstrate the artists’ dual engagement with time based media (the play) and public sculpture (the house/setting). Key topics are manifold, including happiness, dignity, aging, farginen, memory loss, consensus, what art can be and say and do, dispersal and discrepancy, being a witness, talking about one’s life and how body moves.
Busy Time will be staged in a carefully selected Cleveland site, an emptied residential house, which visitors will be able to access in between the different representations of the play. The house will comprise new sculptures, created by Leblon for the décor of, and the viewer’s seating for, the performance. Leblon’s stage design and furnishings for the house occupy a dual role as stage prop and public sculpture, depending on how the house is used. It will be a project activated, alternatively, by the artists, during installation, by the actors, during performances, and by the public, who are invited to tour the house when the theater is dark. In Leblon’s conception, the house assumes the role as a protagonist in the play, as well as in the space of the art going public.
2018 / CURATORIAL FELLOWSHIPS
Artistic Director and Curator of Visual Art, PICA. Professor, Portland State University
Portland State University for Contemporary Art
Project title: Nil Yalter, Solo exhibition Research / Planning
Curator Kristan Kennedy will travel 10 days in France (Feb/March 2019) in order to conceive and develop a new project of exhibition for PICA in 2019 or 2020 involving the artist Nil Yalter. She will examine Yalter’s work and its connections with technology, the digital and immateriality, and compare them with contemporary practices of French artists in FRAC Lorraine (Metz) where a survey of the artist was recently presented and her works are collected; The curator will investigate how Yalter’s work is related or situated alongside the next generation of artists associated with floating populations in Europe and the US by meeting with the Organisation Internationale pour les Migrations in Paris. Her travel will include studio visit with Yalter and her gallery, and tours at the FRAC Lorraine. During her research, she will also look for parallels or an evolution of her radical ideas in emerging French artists work, both in the realm of transdisciplinary fashion centering upon displacement and diaspora, and in the field of performance and technology with representative artists such as Alex Cecchetti, Karl Larsson, and Isabelle Cornaro.
The Mistake Room
Los Angeles, CA
Project title: Histories of a Vanishing Present
Kristine Kuramitsu is seeking to conduct curatorial research in France in September 2018 and April 2019 that will inform The Mistake Room's 2019-2021 programming cycle. She plans two one-week trips, in order to work closely with emerging, France-based cultural practitioners to produce significant projects for the upcoming exhibition program in the Los Angeles space. In 2019-2021, The Mistake Room will produce a cycle of programs titled Histories of a Vanishing Present (HOVP). This constellation of projects considers post memory as a way to understand our relationship to inherited, often traumatic histories that we have not experienced personally. This project will create a set of discursive and exhibitionary tools to mediate the practices of the generation of artists born after 1975, attempting personal, cultural and literal reconstruction in the wake of a geo-political collapse. This cycle will unfold through a series of solo commissions articulating specific subjectivities within the dynamic of postmemory, and group exhibitions around memory, history and selfhood. She would meet French artists who negotiate the post-memorial in their work: Thu Van Tran, Gaelle Choisne, Chloe Quenum, Hicham Berrada, Daiga Grantina, Massinissa Selmani, Mohammed Bourouissa. In addition, she will visit galleries Untilthen, Joseph Tang, Anne-Sarah Bénichou, Kamel Mennour, and have conversations with curators such as Yoann Gourmel (Palais de Tokyo), Sandra Adam-Couralet (PDT), Yung Ma (Centre Pompidou), and Myriam Ben Salah whil pursing the project.
Natasha Marie Llorens
Doctoral Candidate, Independent Curator
Columbia University, New York
New York, NY
Project title: Waiting for Omar Gatlato: A Survey of Algerian Contemporary Art
Natasha Marie Llorens is conducting initial research for an exhibition project focused on artists and filmmakers working in the Algerian diaspora in France. She defines these artists as those who claim a diasporic identity, or by self-identification. This project is conceived as a broad survey exhibition, both of established French artists and filmmakers of Algerian backgrounds, such as Kader Attia, Mohammed Bourouissa, Yazid Oulab, Katia Kameli and Fayçal Baghriche, and of those from the generation now coming of age in a post-civil war Algeria and in its diaspora, including Hassan Ferhani, Carole Doulliard, Samir Ramdani, Oussama Tabti, Dania Reymond, and Neïl Beloufa.
She will do a research in the Cnap collection, studio visits or interviews with artists, curators, and critics working with the Algerian Diaspora in France, an archival research in the Bibliothèque Nationale and the Archives Nationale on artists held by the Cnap, and interviews with curators and writers associated with the Algerian scene in Paris, including Caroline Hancock, Fanny Gillet-Ouhenia, Morad Montazami, and Zahia Rahmani. Her travel in France will take place in October-December 2018, and the show will be on view at the Wallach Art Gallery from October 25, 2019 to March 15-2020. An extensive catalogue is planned for the exhibition, as well as a film and performance program.
2018 / ETANT DONNES RESIDENCIES
Residency in collaboration with The Emily Harvey Foundation
New York, NY
Project title: Perfumes from New York
Last October, Pierre Paulin presented his first significant personal exhibition at LePlateau/ Frac Ile-de-France, in Paris. For this show, he wrote eleven essays, most of them translated into English, and published 3 books that were edited and designed to be read out loud. Just like how sculptures activate the space within museums and galleries, the texts, when read out loud, diffuse the textual and poetic ambiance in the daily life. A four-month residency in NYC will allow Pierre Paulin to continue this body of work: there he would compose and edit two new books, written in collaboration with the New York based poet Tan Lin, an old partner of his. The two books will focus on the notion of perfume: its history and social, cognitive and memorial virtues. “Perfurmes of NYC 1&2” : the first book will sample perfumes worn by the people whom Paulin and Lin frequent during the residency time in NY, constructing a layout of a collection of perfumes that replays their encounters in NYC. For the second book, they will work on the notion of hygiene – the use of perfumes to mask odors and its use in public space. They will document a street in NYC, in relation to its smell and their potential messages, through a textual description of their natures and effects. These books are supposed to be read out loud, by the authors themselves and by others, including curators, gallery directors, docents, etc. In September 2018, these books will be presented at the Emily Harvey Foundation.
Residency in collaboration with Mayeur Projects
Las Vegas, NM
Project title: The New Kid
For his project “The New Kid”, which will take the form of a movie and a solo exhibition in Mayeur Projects gallery, Arnaud Dezoteux draws upon the abundant mythology surrounding Billy the Kid’s life, famous outlaw who lived a large part of his life in New Mexico. The legend says that Billy the Kid was put in jail in the old adobe building which is now the back part of Mayeur Projects gallery. His research project is consistent with his previous videos: where the question of the myth and the idealized image of a personality (in the cultural industries) confronts with the sociocultural realities that influence our perceptions and feed our worship.
Why to choose the life of The Kid? Because it is a symbol of youth and transgression, which keeps on feeding the craziest hypotheses as for the progress of life. Full of holes and untruths, the elements taken from fictionalized books, contradictory biographies, and even sometimes from false or unfounded testimonies are debated for the greater part. Unwillingly, The Kid anticipates in a posthumous way an organized legend such as are the alternative facts today. And as in all the stories that became legends, the real life of The Kid is flooded in the fictional references which define it today. We think obviously of the Wild West and its folk representations, its film clichés. The stake thus is to imagine a project where the past returns in echo with the present, the reality with the fictions that it produces, and the truthfulness of the facts with their fantasized interpretations. What would Billy the Kid have done if he had wanted to be an outlaw today? How would he get weapons? What would be his means of transport and his strategies? How would his confrontation with law enforcement look like? Beyond collecting the testimonies and the expertise of people living on the spot, the project will also adapt the events to our time, filming on green screen and in the public space, to demonstrate an updated version of the life of the Kid. Residency: April-June 2019

Project title: Desideration
Through the project «Desideration», SMITH plans to explore the links which unite contemporary humankind with its stellar origin. The neologism «Desidération», forged on the etymology of the word «desire», denotes nostalgia, the painful lack of a celestial object that has disappeared. Designed as an archipelic project, a «hub» between art, philosophy and sciences, «Desidération » will be composed of photographs, videos, sculptures, performances, theoretical work, as well as a VR short film. This project will be carried out in collaboration with several research labs in France and in the United States. The objectives of the residency are at the crossroads between workshop creations, residencies in laboratories and filming within specific territories in the USA (Arizona). During the residency January-March 2019), SMITH will: conduct research in the laboratory EARTH Lab at the University of California/Santa Cruz and work with researchers Donna Harraway, Beth Stevens and Annie Sprinkle; write the “Desiderated Manifesto” a speculative and theoretical text about the link between humankind and cosmos; conceive a performance and give it onsite; shoot a fiction film in VR within the Meteor Crater (Arizona); make a series of photographs and produce a series of 3D sculptures, printed on meteorites.
Residency in collaboration with Show Gallery, Los Angeles
Los Angeles, CA
Project title: Cruising on empty
Boris Chouvellon’s work arises during travel, while driving to the steering wheels of cars. He gleans short videos of moving platforms in the landscape and on various architectural form within it, capturing the archetypes of what will be his next proposals in terms of sculptures, installations or photos. This process goes and comes continuously between the outside, the studio and the space of exhibition.
His project, « Cruising on empty », is closely related to the city of Los Angeles, its periphery, its roads and coastlines. The automobile, one of the heaviest products of advanced modernity and the road, one of the most interventionist infrastructures in nature, will be the central element of his project. He will navigate the hollowed landscapes, and others saturated by signs in spaces constructed for settlement. Stalking vacuity, the vanity of the spaces proposed, stalking entropic ruins, this mechanism, which suspends, and even abolishes time and linearity according to the artist Robert Smithson. He will confront himself to new landscapes new recordings in the infrastructures that provide rest, meals and entertainment such as "motels", "dinner", "gas stations" and "amusement park" or also abandoned swimming pools - all these construct an integral whole and often mark the origin of the iconography of Hios sculptures and installations. These are the figures that inhabit our unconsciousness, referring to a certain modernity. The objective of his research is then about checking various movements that may be at work in this typology established from 1960s. Residency : Nov & Dec 2018 ; Jan & Feb 2019.
2017 / GRANTS TO ARTISTIC PROJECTS
Contemporary Arts Center
June 8 – September 9, 2018
Curated by Steven Matijcio
The Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinatti will present a special exhibition of works of art by the artist Kader Attia. This show will be the first comprehensive study of Attia’s work across North America and will bring together a number of major works for the first time. For this solo-show created in partnership with The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery in Toronto, the artist will develop a new context-specific work around the notion of “repair” – as a physical and symbolic act – in a particularly North American context.
Drawing associations between methods of repair across cultures and the forms of resistance throughout history, his works often reactivate ethnographic objects in a heightened political context. Scars and stitches are gestures of healing and reconciliation in his work. Repair is seen here as a methodology that offers the potential for colonized or oppressed peoples to reinstate their freedom.
A publication will be jointly produced.
Born in 1970 in France, Kader Attia is of Algerian heritage and currently lives between Berlin and Paris. He is arguably one of the greatest French artists of our moment. He won the renowned Marcel Duchamp Award in 2016. A year ago, he opened a new hybrid space in Paris called “La Colonie” with the purpose of offering an independent agora. Half bar/restaurant – half meeting-room/studio, this cultural space is committed to offering new avenues for the expression of critical thought.

As part of the group show Stories of Almost Everyone
January 28-May 6, 2018
Curated by Aram Moshayedi, with Ikechukwu Onyewuenyi, curatorial assistant.
The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles will present the exhibition Stories of Almost Everyone to draw attention to how artists and curators develop stories about artworks, and to invite participants to question these narratives. In recent years, a continued emphasis of an art of ideas inherited from conceptual and post-conceptual art has sought to fortify strategies for communicating the relevance of art-making within social, political and economic histories.
This large-scale exhibition will feature the work of more than 30 international artists – including 5 French or France-based artists – who contribute a range of perspectives on making, presenting, and contextualizing art: Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc (b. 1977), Fayçal Baghriche (b. 1972), Isabelle Cornaro (b. 1974) , Latifa Echakhch (b. 1974) , and Kapwani Kiwanga (b. 1978). Collectively, these contributors offer ideas that alternately conform to Western values of the duty of the artist to explain his or her work, and also to contrasting perspectives rooted in local, vernacular practices and histories.
A scholarly catalogue with voices from different disciplines and an experimental audio-guide involving the writer Kanishk Tharoor will provide participants a fresh entry point into the show.
Marc Camille Chaimowicz Marc Camille Chaimowicz: Your place or Mine…
The Jewish Museum
New York March 16 – August 5, 2018
Curated by Kelly Taxter
The Jewish Museum will present the first solo museum exhibition in the United States of the influential contemporary artist Marc Camille Chaimowicz.
Marc Camille Chaimowicz: Your Place or Mine is a large-scale survey featuring the artist’s visionary, cross-disciplinary work from the last five decades, including painting, sculpture, video, performance, textile, wallpaper, and prototypes for everyday objects. Divided into five sections, each gallery will feature site-specific installations that echo public and private spaces through the lens of the artist’s unique perspective, the surrounding neighborhood, and the museum’s building. These sections are: The Bedroom, The House, The Park, The Dollhouse and The Library. A full scope of Chamowicz’s cross disciplinary work will be on display from sculpture-cum-furniture to wallpaper, draperies, ceramics, lightings, paintings, collages and rarely-seen maquettes… As an accompaniment to his own practice, Chaimowicz will include pieces by modern artists selected among the museum’s collection (Anni Albers, Edouard Vuillard, Wiener Werkstätte…).
Marc Camille Chaimowicz (b. post-war Paris) established himself in the 1970s London art scene as an artist who merged performance and installation art in a manner as playful as it was critical and sensual. Based in London and Burgundy, he teaches at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Dijon.

As part of the group show Womenhouse
National Museum of Women in the Arts
March 9 –May 28, 2018
Curated by Camille Morineau
First-time grantee of the FACE Foundation, the National Museum of Women in the Arts will present the exhibition Womenhouse in collaboration with the French institution La Monnaie de Paris and curated by Camille Morineau. La Monnaie’s focus on creativity and liberty echoes NMWA’s mission to bring the accomplishment of women artists to the attention of the public.
This new exhibition forms a sequel to the famous project called Womenhouse developed in 1972 by Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro. At that time, the artists and their students at CalArts transformed a Hollywood Mansion with works that disrupted traditional ideas about the home as a feminine realm. This new project will feature 36 global artists who conceive of home as a place for demonstration, exploration, and liberation rather than a space solely for nurturing, comfort, and stability.
Organized across several provocative themes by artists from around the world, Womenhouse emphasizes the plurality of women’s views on the home through different sections—Desperate Housewife, Bodyhouse, Body Double, Fingerprints, Dollhouse, and Mobile Home—and is composed of videos, sculptures, customary architectural frameworks, photographs, draped and stitched works, fabric and wax sculptures, dolls, miniature furniture, tent-like structures, collapsible acrylic panels, felt and wool sheeting.
Solo exhibition The Anthropocene Style: Decorative style in a new age of global warming
San Francisco Art Institute
Curated by Hesse McGraw
The San Francisco Art Institute will present the first US exhibition of Paris-based Swiss architect Philippe Rahm. Also his first solo exhibition, The Anthropocene Style: Decorative style in a new age of global warming will manifest the artist’s ideas surrounding the urgency of climate change through an architecture and design process that takes meteorology, atmosphere, and physiology as its primary material.
Rahm has developed an innovative approach that promises a rethinking of the field of design within what is known as the Anthropocene era, by a new approach, more sensitive and attentive to the invisible, climate-related aspect of space. It will model a design that integrates materials such as fabrics, lighting, and patterns into interior building design, a contrast to the spare, minimalist “white cube” style of the later twentieth century. In its sparseness, the white cube aesthetic often relies on artificial heating and cooling systems that use precious resources and produce harmful elements, hastening global warming and contributing to an unsustainable future.
Philippe Rahm (b.1976) develops work, for which he has received an international audience, extending the field of architecture from the physiological to the meteorological in the context of sustainability. He started teaching architectural design at the Graduate School of Design in Harvard in 2014.
Performances related to a solo exhibition They are waiting for you
Walker Art Center
October 2017-February 2018
Curated by Philip Bither
Laure Prouvost is a renowned UK-trained French artist who creates rich immersive and interdisciplinary installations in which she conflates reality and fiction, words and images, often reveling in moments of mistranslation opening up new fields of meaning. Prouvost is one the 9 artists commissioned through the Walker’s Interdisciplinary Initiative to create a multi-platform work using both the gallery and the stage and supporting the development of artist’s experimental practice across disciplines.
An exhibition of Prouvost will be on view at the Walker Art Center from October 12, 2017 to February 11, 2018 with a fully realized stage production, commissioned by the museum and the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center, where 2 performances will take place in February.
The performance supported by FACE, titled They are waiting for you, is an abstract journey from adulthood backwards to a state of pre-consciousness. Using certain thematic elements from her gallery installation, They are waiting for you will play between recorded text and live singing, embodied performance and video projections, and live percussion and electronic sound. The performance draws upon the expertise of Prouvost’s two key collaborators: acclaimed choreographer Pierre Droulers and sound and digital media artist Sam Belinfante.
Laure Prouvost (b.1978) was awarded the Turner Prize in 2013.
Tarek Atoui Permanent installation and performance
A Survey in Three Movements
Marfa Soundings: 2018
Curated by Ida Soulard and Jennifer Burris Stanton
Through site-specific performances, sound installations, film screenings, and public conversations, Marfa Sounding examines and highlights the influence of experimental music on the development of Minimalism, and in particular music’s relationship with landscape, architecture, and social structures. For this 2018 annual long weekend program, the most significant presentation of work by Atoui in the USA to date, A Survey in Three Movements will showcase the artist’s examination of sound, place, and the social practice of improvisation across the varied landscapes of Marfa, Texas.
Artist and composer Tarek Atoui has been involved in the Festival over the last 3 years and is engaged in inter-disciplinary experimentation, challenging the conventional structure of a survey show while engaging students, local musicians, visitors and residents in the communal experience of embodied listening.
The project will include a context-specific adaptation of 3 performances: Zero Point Nine is a new instrument: this monumental bass synthesizer producing ultra-low frequency electronic sounds was developed during his 2015 residency at the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum, and Pacific Film Archive, and should be accessible to all forms of hearing; “I/E Elefsis” is a sound-proof shipping container that functions as a collective instrument and will function as a site-specific performance as well as an ongoing platform for future events and sonic research; The Reverse Collection initiated within the ethnographical storage of Dahlem Museum is a group of new instrumentals created through a reverse process to improvise from historical instruments. In Marfa, Atoui will work with a group of local musicians from Texas and along the Mexican border to create a new score using these experimental tools for making music. Tarek Atoui (b.1980, Lebanon) is based in France
2017 / CURATORIAL FELLOWSHIPS
Assistant curator, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum
Michigan State University
Project title: Exhibition Research: Michel Parmentier, Tatiana Trouvé, Loris Greaud
Steven Bridges’ research will culminate in exhibitions of the famous French artists Michel Parmentier (April 28-September 9, 2018), Tatiana Trouvé (October 27, 2018 -March 3, 2019), and Loris Greaud’s new project at the Broad Art Museum of Michigan State University.
The retrospective exhibition of Michel Parmentier will be the first in the US to focus on his early minimalist paintings within the BMTP group (Buren, Mosset, Parmentier, Toroni). Exploring his systematic and symbolic process, along with supporting documents from his archives, the show will set out to trace his path from geometric design and collage to the development of his signature stripes, and will offer visitors significant insight into this particular history of painting in the second half of the XXth century.
Similarly, the solo show of Tatiana Trouvé’s work will be her 1st retrospective in the US. New work will be commissioned especially for the occasion. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue featuring French and American writers.
Loris Greaud has proposed to develop and to produce a new artwork specifically designed for the Planetarium on the Michigan State University campus. This mysterious installation is posed to engage the whole building, as the artist often produces site-specific and invading projects.

Project title: The Daniel Cordier Collection, from the Perspective of Psychiatric Collections
Valerie Rousseau’s research project contextualizes the museum collections of Les Abattoirs in Toulouse, and more specifically, the self-taught art collection donated by Daniel Cordier in 1989, from the viewpoint of the recognition of psychiatric collections.
In the well-known case of the Heidelberg Clinic, Valerie Rousseau will explore a pivotal history anchored at the hospital of Saint-Alban-Sur-Limagnole (Lozère, France). This site bares the marks of important doctors and psychiatrists such as Lucien Bonnafé and Jean Oury, all associated to the movement of institutional psychotherapy. This hospital, which also sheltered rebels and Jews during the war, became a space for the development of an intellectual resistance and for the fight against the extermination of the mentally ill. The Daniel Cordier Collection offers a rich framework to better understand the nature of the constant links between artistic and psychiatric circles during the first half of the 20th century, and more specifically in the context of the two World Wars.
Project title: After a Fashion: Dress, Desire and Contemporary Art
Alexandra Schwartz, a New York-based independent curator and former curator of Contemporary Art at Montclair Art Museum, will conduct research in Paris within the framework of the exhibition she is organizing: “After a Fashion: Dress, Desire and Contemporary Art”. This exhibition will showcase contemporary art’s engagement with costume, and how artists are using “garments” to examine issues of cultural difference, gender and sexuality. Pioneered by artistes including Louise Bourgeois, Lorraine O’Grady and Niki de Saint-Phalle, “garmenting” as an artistic strategy emerged during the 1960s to define all kind of clothes. Because Paris is a historical capital of couture and textile manufacturing, as well as of contemporary art, Schwartz will conduct her research on French artists dealing with these issues and will explore French public collections related to her project.

Project title: Binding Agents: Toward an Aesthetic of the Postcolonial in Contemporary Exhibition
James Voorhies will conduct research in Paris for a publication titled “Binding Agents: Toward an Aesthetic of the Postcolonial in Contemporary Art”. In this book, Voorhies intends to write about a selection of artists, exhibitions, institutions and publications, in order to articulate and trace situations in art over the past two decades. He seeks to demonstrate through extended research projects that manifest in film, photography, immersive installations and public programming that the postcolonial experience is increasingly aestheticized: from the art presented at major international exhibitions to the work seen at smaller institutions and initiatives. For this research, he will visit artists based in France, such as: Christodoulos Panayiotou whose films, theatrical performances and installations derive, in part, from field studies and anthropological investigations of Cyprus; Aman Mojadidi, who addresses questions of migration, identity and belonging, and Etel Adnan, a Lebanese-American visual artist and poet based in Paris, whose practice has consistently engaged important questions of violence and war.
Executive Director, LAXART
Project title: Sperm Cult
LAXART’s Executive Director Hamza Walker’s research for “Sperm Cult” aims to prepare a collaborative exhibition between Elijah Burgher and French Artist Ghédalia Tazartès. The collaboration between the 2 artists will be a follow up on Burgher’s earlier collaborations “House of Shame” with A.A.Bronson and “Sperm Cult” with Richard Hawkins, who are seminal artists dealing with the freeing of desire against the norms of social constraint.
For Elijah Burgher, sexuality and artistic creation are twin pillars of spirituality. His paintings are created on the ground through a series of ritual exercises akin to yoga. It is in the work of Ghedalia Tazartès that Burgher finds his aural corollary. Both are fluent in esoteric styles, obsessed with developing a highly personal language and committed to a practice grounded in shamanistic ritual.
2017 / ETANT DONNES RESIDENCIES
Represented by Galerie Binôme
Residency in collaboration with Aperture Foundation
March – June 2018
Thibault Brunet is a young photographer, mostly interested in technically questioning the action of shooting: understanding the ways in which virtual imagery meets reality in our society that is becoming more and more digitalized. After studying and graduating from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Nîmes, he started working on virtual worlds, looking for pictures. In 2014, he took part in a collective project attempting to catalog the French territory architecture on Google Earth; his work was presented at the Lyon Biennale in 2015 and will soon be displayed at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France in Paris. He is now mostly working on digitalizing the real world, using a LIDAR. He was recently exhibited at the Centre Pompidou as part of the “Imprimer le Monde/Print the World” show. He was also one of the five finalists for Aperture Foundation Award.
Soleil Noir (Black Sun) is a new photographic research project inspired by historical public commissions such as heliographic mission, the DATAR or the ESF. This project aims to observe and analyze the specific terrain of the United States, with its endless lands and distant horizons. Brunet is interested in the territory as itself and its occupation. He programs a topographical exploration inspired by science fiction and a questioning of photographical objectivity as a reflection on virtuality.
The main partner of Thibault Brunet’s residency will be the Aperture Foundation. Brunet is proposing a new frame of reference based on a “machine of vision”, which echoes the first shots in the room: the device is heavy, while exposure to the camera angle is long and reveals the narrative potential of the image by showing the passage of time.
2016 / GRANTS TO ARTISTIC PROJECTS
URBAN RIDERS Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia
June 30 - October 2, 2017
Curated by Sylvie Patry
The Barnes Foundation will present a special exhibition of works of art by the artist Mohamed Bourouissa. This comprehensive examination of Bourouissa’s works is inspired by his 2013 residency in Philadelphia and is the first ever extensive solo exhibition devoted to the artist by a museum in the United States.
The exhibition at the Barnes Foundation will bring together the various works inspired by this project: drawings (20), photographs (10), videos (2), riders’ costumes (8) and sculptures (Hoods, 15), as well as posters, flyers, and wallpaper. Initiated in 2015, Hoods is a series of sculptures made of discarded car parts, printed with photographs or images from Horseday, and mixed with harnesses, curb bits, and other elements of riding gear. Invested with documentary and makeshift attributes in continuity with the experience carried out in Philadelphia, these pieces also echo the recent history of sculpture, revisiting John Chamberlain’s art, for instance, through the lens of a strong social commitment. The exhibition will also feature an opening live performance with a horse rider. The accompanying catalogue will be the first publication on this project, and the first on the artist produced by an American institution.
Logan Center Exhibitions at the University of Chicago
January 20 through March 12, 2017
Curated by Yesomi Umolu
Paris-based artist Kapwani Kiwanga’s first US solo exhibition.This project will expose a new audience of artists, students, scholars, and community members across Chicago to Kiwanga’s work, which is rarely shown in the United States, in particular within the context of a major solo presentation. Kiwanga produces works across installation, performance, and video that marry her training in anthropology and comparative religions with an interest in colonial histories, collective memory, and belief systems. Informed by French ethnographic traditions and popular culture, Kiwanga intentionally confuses truth and fiction in her work in order to unsettle hegemonic narratives and create spaces in which marginal and fantastical discourse can flourish.
Featuring sculpture, video and installation, Kiwanga’s exhibition at the Logan Center Gallery will pair existing and newly commissioned work within a specially designed gallery display inspired by cosmogonies from around the world. In a new work specifically produced for this occasion, Kiwanga will explore the relationship between language, space and translation in representations of the American Landscape from the birth of the nation to today.

November 16, 2016 to March 26, 2017
Curated by: Dan Byers, Mannion Family Senior Curator, with Jeffrey De Blois, Curatorial Assistant.
With Pierre Leguillon and La Grande Evasion (The Great Escape) installation
The exhibition represents the first time that Leguillon’s work La grande évasion (The great escape), 2012, a collection of artworks and photographs of dancers with a lightshow and soundtrack by Amy Winehouse will be presented in the United States, to an audience of nearly 35,000 Boston residents and visitors.
The desire to collect objects and images of personal significance, and to make connections between them, is a nearly universal human experience. Since the beginning of the twentieth century, artists’ collections of artworks and artifacts have served as inspiration for their work, helping to create highly individualized models of their worlds. The Artist’s Museum departs from the impulse to collect and connect, bringing together photography, film, video, installation, sculpture, and sound works that use artworks, images, and history as material. The twelve artists in this exhibition address a constellation of issues such as gender, sexuality, technology, and digital culture, charting forms and themes across cultures and through time. La grande évasion by Pierre Leguillon will be on view throughout the run of the exhibition, with Leguillon visiting Boston in November to guide the installation of the piece. In addition, the ICA has also invited Leguillon to participate in a series of related public programs in March 2017. On the evening of March 2, free and open to the public, the ICA will host an iteration of its series The Artist’s Voice with Leguillon and other invited exhibition artists.
Artists in the show: Anna Craycroft, Rosa Barba, Christian Marclay, Carol Bove, Rachel Harrison, Mark Leckey, Pierre Leguillon.
"Language": The Manuscripts of Pierre Guyotat
Artists Space Books & Talks- NEW YORK
DATE: TO BE ANNOUNCED
Pierre Guyotat’s project can be said to be one of the acute dissolution of language. Railing against conventional form, he has manufactured a style that is in equal parts fragmented and syntactically complex. His published output is one of the most uncompromising of modern literature, and positions the French writer as an heir to de Sade,Bataille, Artaud and Genet. Philippe Sollers, founder of the journal Tel Quel, identified a direct correlation between Guyotat and de Sade, instantiated by the latter’s 1783 statement that “there is nothing as beautiful as sex and there is no salvation without it.” Guyotat’s writing is imbued with questions of sexuality and violence, and challenges normative bourgeois notions of morality through a provocative representation of libidinal desire. Avoiding any glorification of his subject matter for the sake of sensationalism, for Guyotat, sexuality doubles the role of language itself—again the simultaneous dissolution, and thus rehabilitation, of culture.
Guyotat’s manuscripts—often illuminating, if fraught, contestations between typed and handwritten language—offer significant insight to this process, characterized as they are byrevision, erasure, collapse and ultimately reinvention. This exhibition and program series at Artists Space Books & Talks will emphasize the importance of the manuscript as an exhibition object.

Mechanisms CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary ArtS SAN FRANCISCO
October 12, 2017 – February 24, 2018
Curated by Anthony Huberman
Mechanisms is a group exhibition that reflects on the way artists alter, disrupt, or invent mechanisms. The exhibition will feature several French artists, including Neïl Beloufa, Jean Luc Moulène, and other internationally-recognized artists.
Mechanisms comes at a critical point in the development of the careers of younger French artists. The Wattis Institute’s strong visibility within the American (and international) contemporary art community will provide a significant introduction of the artists’ work to a new American audience.
To accompany and enhance Mechanisms, the Wattis Institute will produce a wide variety of programs, including lectures, workshops, performances, and panel discussions. The program will also look backwards in time and highlight the perversions that artists have inserted into the work of engineers over the course of the past fifty years. Faculty-led workshops will be based around specific works in the exhibition; and artists will visit local classrooms and seminars for an even more in-depth dialogue. We plan to archive all of these events online with video and audio documentation, photography, and interviews with selected speakers, allowing the program to transmit to an international audience through the website.

Curator at the Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas
Sightings: Anne Le Troter
“I was introduced to the work of Anne Le Troter at the 61st annual Salon de Montrouge this past May 2016. As a participant of Institut français’ Visual Arts FOCUS, I was granted access not only to a tour led by the Salon’s artistic director, Ami Barak, but I was also able to meet with several participating artists. I experienced Anne’s work before we formally met. Sitting in her sculpture, which doubles as object, I tuned into the quiet voices emanating from speakers concealed within the work. My French was still rusty, despite having spent several days in Paris, but slowly I began to grasp the narrative that her actors were voicing. The whispering tones, together with the furniture that resembled that which is commonly found in transportation terminals, gave me the sensation that I was invading a personal space with undefined boundaries. In the midst of the somewhat crowded and chaotic installation of the Salon, Anne’s work provided a moment of quiet respite and reflection.”
The Nasher has maintained a close relationship to the work of French artists through its involvement in the French Sculpture Census. Leigh A.Arnold seeks to expand her own involvement in French contemporary art. “I believe the collaboration with Anne would be mutually beneficial to both French and U.S. audiences as Anne would have the opportunity to work in a new language and U.S. audiences would be exposed to contemporary French art.”
