    • Dorothea Lange

      16 Oct. 2018 > 27 Janv. 2019

      Drawing from the archives of the Oakland Museum of California, this is the first exhibition to focus on the extraordinary emotional power of Dorothea Lange’s work and to present her work produced during the Great Depression, the Second World War and post-war America, from the perspective of her political activism.

      The exhibition at the Jeu de Paume examines from a new perspective the work of this renowned American artist, whose legacy continues to be felt today. Highlighting the artistic qualities and the strength of the artist’s political convictions, this exhibition allows audiences to rediscover the importance of Dorothea Lange’s work.

    • Ana Mendieta

      16 Oct. 2018 > 27 Janv. 2019

      The exhibition "Ana Mendieta" (Havana, 1948 - New York, 1985) is devoted to the film work of this Cuban artist. Bringing together some twenty or so films and a selection of photographs, the exhibition allows audiences to discover the greatest ensemble of the artist’s work ever presented in a single location.

      Ana Mendieta is widely considered one of the most talented and original artists of the post-war era. During her brief career, from 1971 to 1985, Ana Mendieta produced a remarkable body of work, including drawings, installations, performances, photographs and sculptures. Lesser known, her production of films and videos is particularly impressive and prolific: her 104 films produced between 1971 and 1981, make Ana Mendieta one of the leading figures in the practice of multidisciplinary visual arts.

    • Alejandro Cesarco

      16 Oct. 2018 > 27 Janv. 2019

      Born in Montevideo (Uruguay), Alejandro Cesarco lives and works in New York. His work unfolds as a series of deductions that often indicate an elsewhere or an off-camera, bearing witness to the experience of reality in all its discontinuity.

      Alejandro Cesarco describes his practice as addressing questions of “repetition, narrative, and the practices of reading and translating.” Artworks take the form of film and video, prints and photographs, text and drawings, among others, and evince a deep engagement with the histories and aesthetics of Conceptual Art. With a poetic, sometimes romantic, other times melancholic air, they represent a sustained investigation into time, memory, and how meaning is felt.

      Many of Cesarco’s artistic strategies point to the influence of literature on his practice, structurally and conceptually, directly and indirectly. Certain works take the form of the index, the dedication, and the table of contents. Texts by authors such as Robert Walser, Jorge Luis Borges, Marguerite Duras, and Clarice Lispector are quoted in structure or subject matter. A similar “personal canon” could be drawn from the fields of cinema and art.
      Over all, Cesarco’s methodologies variously mine the possibilities of tropes and archetypes, inspiration and appropriation, genre and style.
