INCARNATIONS, AFRICAN ART AS PHILOSPHY – GROUP SHOW
IncarNations is an exhibition designed by South African artist Kendell Geers in dialogue with Congolese collector Sindika Dokolo. An exciting initiative that reflects the diversity of African aesthetic heritage, stripped of any Eurocentric prism and including the influence of diasporas, slave routes, colonialism or independence movements. From the impressive collection of Sindika Dokolo, the productions of African artists resonate with those of the diaspora while contemporary works of art will be presented alongside classical works, finally opening the way to the unveiling of African art, understood as a living philosophical practice.

BIENALSUR, HOME SWEET HOME – GROUP SHOW
How much do the spaces we inhabit say about us? What forms do such spaces take? In what way do they reflect our lifestyle? If the home is the border limit between outside and inside, public and private, safety and uncertainty, “home” is also the projection of our own body (and in particular our mind) as a kind of microcosm which with to dispute the immensity of the universe. In the context of this exhibition, we conceive of home as a space-time where we unfurl the experience of inhabitation, anchoring men and women’s primary desire to occupy a place in the world, which is also the springboard for imagination to take flight.

ALBEROLABELLEROJOUX – GROUP SHOW
While so many points bring them together, and they are important references for the current generation of artists and commentators, Jean-Michel Alberola and Arnaud Labelle-Rojoux have, inexplicably, never been exhibited together.
In the imposing setting of the Convent of the Minimes, seven secular« chapels » will host, like so many chapters of a book, the recent productions of the two artists, in a telescoping worthy of a synchrocyclotron of thought and art. This visual and mental bombardment should allow the viewer to “see”, that is to say to access, even incompletely, even imperfectly, the energetic poetic and political charge lurking in the heart of these works .

TABLEAU AND TRANSFORMATION: PHOTOGRAPHY FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION – GROUP SHOW
“Tableau and Transformation” presents an overview of the Tampa Museum of Art’s holdings in 20th-century photography, a cornerstone of the Museum’s permanent collection. The exhibition looks at how artists have used distinct darkroom effects and studio practices to create new narratives in photography. Artists such as James Casebere, Robert Cumming, Stephen Frailey, Sandy Skoglund, and William Wegman create constructed environments, often blurring the boundaries of truth and fiction in their images. Photographers Blythe Bohnen, Duane Michals, Arnulf Rainer, Lucas Samaras, Cindy Sherman examine the transformation of one’s self as a means to explore identity, gender, and place. This exhibition features approximately 50 photographs with objects ranging in date from the mid-1960s to through the early 2000s, predominately drawn from the Museum’s permanent collection.

RE – COMMENCER – SOLO SHOW
Claude Viallat is a confirmed artist, one of the very first French artists of his generation, but his work finds today a very contemporary resonance as the ecological consciousness develops, the return to practices and craft techniques, to a know-how that is a way of resisting hyper mechanization, technological development, digital dematerialization and the reversal of man’s position in his environment. The unseemly part that we perceive in Claude Viallat’s work, this impertinence sought in support, form or color, this unexpected, this unfinished, this precariousness, has the character of an absolute youth.

CLAUDE VIALLAT. LIBéRER LA COULEUR – SOLO SHOW

The heart of the exhibition is the works shown in 1980 at CAPC de Bordeaux, a major and pivotal exhibition in Viallat’s work through the use of a dense support, the exploration of polychrome and the cutting of the canvas in colour charts. This exhibition marked a turning point in Viallat’s practice and consecrated him as one of the greatest colourists of his time

EIGHTIES AND ECHOES – GROUP SHOW
The new pictorial approaches that emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s set themselves against a domination of abstraction and a reductive avant-garde ideology: dictate of rupture, death of the painting, linear and progressive vision art. However, since the beginning of their training at the Beaux-Arts, a new generation of painters choose to re-examine the tradition of painting, the figure, the illusion of depth, feeding on a multitude of models. The exhibition “Aux sources du 1980s” questions their imaginary museum.
Looking at different relationships to the past, understood as a way of renewing painting, the works that are showcased interact sometimes with a specific model, sometimes reactivate traditional subjects around three major themes: the individual and society, love and otherness, nature and the sacred.
