CONJONCTIONS

Opening: June 8, 2006

Date of the event: June 9 – September 17, 2006

Organisation: Mamco, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Geneva

Location: Mamco, 10 rue des Vieux-Grenadiers, 1205 Geneva, Switzerland

Conjonctions: 9 monographic exhibitions of Luc Tuymans, Silvia Bächli, Philippe Cognée, Laurent Faulon, Douglas Huebler, Alfredo Jaar, Jean-Marc Meunier, Anita Molinero and Denis Savary.

Until 17 September 2006, Mamco presents a new sequence of exhibitions called Conjonctions, the sixth installment in the cycle « Mille et trois plateaux ». The 3500 m2 exhibition space at Mamco, Switzerland’s largest museum devoted to contemporary art, is having a make over, a new presentation that will include nine monographic shows.

 

Luc Tuymans, one of the most outstanding figures of the contemporary art scene, will be showing a selection of his portraits, which is sure to be one of the major events in this new summer sequence, along with a show featuring some one hundred drawings by the Swiss artist Silvia Bächli. Several entirely new works designed specifically for the Mamco space are also on the program, notably Anita Molinero’s sculptures and a sound and visual installation by Laurent Faulon. The Cabinet des estampes, Geneva’s print museum and a regular guest at Mamco, will inaugurate a series of shows devoted to conceptual and minimal art from the 1960s and 1970s with an exhibition of Douglas Huebler’s work. Also scheduled for this summer, a video by Alfredo Jaar, which the artist shot in Angola, along with a video by the young artist Denis Savary; a series of variations on a single motif, a beef carcass, worked out in 36 different paintings by Philippe Cognée; and finally the urban photographs of Jean-Marc Meunier.

Along with these temporary shows, Mamco will also be opening several thematic and monographic galleries featuring the museum’s collections, and publishing a collection of interviews with Luc Tuymans. In short, it is to be an eclectic summer program that well reflects the pluralism of the contemporary art scene.
