    • Mélanie Manchot

      20 OCT 2018 > 24 FEB 2019

      Melanie Manchot was born in Germany in 1966 and lives and works in London.
      A real discovery for some or the confirmation of a unique vision for others, this first major monographic show of Melanie Manchot’s work in France looks back at 20 years of creation through a selection of pieces created between 1998 and 2018, and widens the scope of her research thanks to new productions.

      Melanie Manchot appropriates the museum space and strips it bare with a very open scenography weaving intimate and shared spaces where each work defines its own territory. As she restages her works, the artist opens a dialogue between them and furthers a global take on her production. In her video installations, Melanie Manchot relies on the scale of the projection and the multiple-screen display involving the body of the viewers and their relationship to the pieces, as they are required to be active and multiply viewpoints. The time of the exhibition is also that of the production of a new participative video -to be finalized on the last week of the show. In the framework of this video, the museum room becomes like a film set, a scenery around the work-in-progress.

      16 OCT 2018 > 20 JAN 2019

      A collaborative project between the Musée national de l’histoire de l’immigration and the MAC VAL

      The exhibition will provide a platform for artists to share their analyses, critics and feelings toward national fold, behaviors of rejection and revolt. These artistic testimonies will help us think these questions through and look at ourselves yet without any moralistic judgment. Through this unique and engaged partnership project, the Musée national de l’histoire de l’immigration and the MAC VAL look to raise awareness, foster reflection and debate, and call our certitudes into question. Although central, the issues related to migratory flows do not cross out other neglected –and little known- forms of hospitality toward helpless and weakened populations. The exhibition will bring forth proposals around community life, care for others, the necessity of nursing homes, public health-care and hospitality centers held in a spirit of attentiveness, kindness and sharing we should rehabilitate.

      With works by Eduardo Arroyo, Marcos Avila Forero, Bertille Bak, Richard Baquié, Taysir Batniji, Ben, Bruno Boudjelal, Mark Brusse, Pierre Buraglio, Mircea Cantor, Étienne Chambaud, Kyungwoo Chun, Philippe Cognée, Delphine Coindet, Julien Discrit, Thierry Fontaine, Jochen Gerz, Ghazel, Marie-Ange Guilleminot, Mona Hatoum, Éric Hattan, Laura Henno, Emily Jacir, Yeondoo Jung, Bouchra Khalili, Kimsooja, Claude Lévêque, Lahouari Mohammed Bakir, Lucy Orta, Bernard Pagès, Yan Pei-Ming, Cécile Paris, Mathieu Pernot, Jacqueline Salmon, Bruno Serralongue, Esther Shalev-Gerz, Société Réaliste, Djamel Tatah, Barthélémy Toguo, Patrick Tosani, Sabine Weiss…
