Exhibition of Linder at the MAM, paris.
1 february — 21 April 21013

The exhibition retraces Linder’s work from her first scalpel-cut-collages through to the large backlit photomontages created with photoshop. This retrospective also features drawings, photographs and performances, including the famous concert at the Hacienda in 1982, which Linder (a vegetarian) gave in a dress made of discarded meat. All materials and means of expression are equally valid for Linder — including her own body — and she describes her work as “auto-montages” Woman or object? This is the question that are constantly asks in her work and which, despite several decades of feminist struggle, still needs to be posed

Jean-Michel Basquiat at the MAM

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

This exhibition consists of one hundred major works (paintings, drawings, objects) gathered from many museums, american and european private collections. It follows the chronological path of the artist and measure its huge consequenses in Art and Art history beyond the 80’s. Basquiat, Haitian and Puerto Rican origin, born in Brooklyn in 1960 in the state of New York and died in New York in 1988 following an overdose at the age of twenty-seven years, belongs to the graffiti generation which abruptly emerged in New York in the late 70s. In 1977, he began signing his graffiti of the name of SAMO (for “Same Old Shit”) with a crown and the initials of the copyright. During his fulgurating career, his painting moves from the street to the paintings. His work combines sacred mythologies of voodoo, Bible, comics, advertising, media, African American heroes, music, boxing, and affirmation of his blackness. It defines an anti-urban culture, underground, violent and anarchic, full of freedom and vitality. In 1982, Basquiat is invited to participate at Documenta 7 in Kassel, Germany. The following year he was the youngest and first black artist to exhibit at the Biennale of the Whitney American Art Museum in New York.
