An Exhibition – An Event
[Une exposition – un événement)
Suite for exhibition(s) and publication(s),
third movement.
A proposal by Mathieu Copeland
from 28 May 2013
until 01 September 2013
Jeu de Paume, Paris

For the sixth edition of its Satellite program, the Jeu de Paume has invited curator Mathieu Copeland. Conceived as part of the “Suite for Exhibition(s) and Publication(s),” “An exhibition – An Event” will be presented at the Jeu de Paume will echo the two movements “A Spoken Word Exhibition” and “An Exhibition Without Texts,” which were presented respectively at the Jeu de Paume and the Maison d’Art Bernard Anthonioz.

This exhibition examines the moment when the image becomes an abstraction of itself until it disappears in favor of the event. The event should be envisaged in its widest sense: a musical score of an event, a suggested reading, or an action that takes place in the ancillary spaces allocated to the Satellite program. Mathieu Copeland’s proposal explores what happens in neutral contexts and how a formal presence is activated in them.

Invited artists: Mieko Shiomi, Maria Eichhorn, Tim Etchells.
