“In the meantime, the narrator artist”. Two decades of French art (1994-2014) through the collections of video installations of the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris (May 24-Jul. 28, 2014)
The exhibition offers a selection of video works by French artists acquired by the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris over the last twenty years. Through this selection can be read the story of a generation that has been a point of reference for many artists in France and abroad. Through their interventions, they often filled several roles, such as that of the artist, the critic, the curator, the organizer of events. Their projects reflect a "relational" dynamic and take various forms, such as the lm, the song, the television show, the manga and the documentary. In uenced by the historical avant-gardes and especially those of the 70s including cinema and video, these artists propose "works experiences".
