Dislocations — Exposition collective


Mixed media

Exposition collective

Ends in about 1 month: February 16 → June 30, 2024

At a time when international geopolitical developments are a palimpsest of times and spaces in crisis, The “Dislocations” exhibition brings together fifteen artists from different generations and backgrounds (Afghanistan, France, Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Libya, Myanmar, Palestine, Syria and Ukraine) whose work is marked or informed by the experience of exile, of being torn between here and there, between past and present. Their practices draw on ancestral know-how and contemporary technologies, humble gestures and poor materials. The aim is to pay homage to the vital necessity and intensity of artistic creation through fragmented narratives that combine displacement, imprisonment and war with resilience and reparation.

This project is part of a collaboration between the Palais de Tokyo and the non-profit Portes ouvertes sur l’art, which promotes the work of artists in situations of exile, displacement or exclusion, in a spirit of openness and research. Its aim is to promote and display the work of these artists in collaboration with the art world, organising exhibitions and events at various venues in France. A first invitation from the Palais de Tokyo in 2022 led to the screening programme “L’ami intérieur”.
