L’amitié : ce tremble — Au Crédac

Past: April 28 → July 13, 2024

Artists: Boris Achour, Noémie Bablet, Anna Byskov (with Bertil Byskov, Margaret Byskov, Camila Farina and Sophie Lamm), Thomas Cap de Ville, Caretto & Spagna, Lola Gonzàlez, Donna Gottschalk, Tom Hallet, Eric Hattan (with Hannah Villiger), Youri Johnson, Edit Oderbolz, Hatice Pinarbaşi, Marthe Ramm Fortun, Marnie Slater (with Robin Brettar, Matilda Cobanli, Judith Geerts, Jessica Gysel, Katja Mater and Clare Noonan) and Sarah Tritz.

The CRAC Alsace and Credac’s teams join their creativities to organize L’amitié : ce tremble (Friendship : that shiver, that aspen), an exhibition around friendship as creation’s driving force, deploys itself in both art centers.

Situated in two different geographic, social and artistic contexts — one of them being the rural territory, on the border between Switzerland and Germany, the other one being on the other Parisian periphery — the Alsatian CRAC and the Crédac share a commitment : accompany and valorize experimentation and contemporary creation prioritizing the encounter between the audience, artists, and artworks.

L’amitié : ce tremble then is the right moment to combine the missions and promoted values by the National’s interest contemporary art Center’s label, defended by the Alsatian CRAC and the Crédac, active members of the French association of contemporary Arts Center’s Development (association française de Développement des Centres d’Art contemporain — DCA) .

With L’amitié : ce tremble, we’d like to remember the expanse of friendly connections that feed all projects and develops affective links with the audience, artists and thinkers, that make art centers come to life. Beyond a feeling of connivance or sympathy, friendship here becomes a curatorial method and an artistic project ; it gets played.

Building this exhibition, which takes place from February to May at Alsatian CRAC, and then from April to July at Crédac, the art centers teams sometimes wished to put the emphasis on the fidelity durability of Relationship, soliciting artists that had already exhibited in their institutions. As for invited artist, they of course desired to guest their loved one to participate to the project, and, at the same time, produce new art pieces collaborating with their guests.

Others get interested by the strength in friendship circles and its evolution, or suggest friendship as a refuge or a place of social and political resistance.

Finally, some people question the limits and duration of this affective reciprocity, sometimes based on interest or transaction. All of them outstretch their hands to different publics and invite the audience to extend the exploration of undefinable relationships.

From February the 18th to May the 12th 2024, L’amitié : ce tremble takes place at the Alsatian CRAC (CARC) Contemporary Art Rhine Center in Altkirch, France, 18 Château Street, and on www.cracalsace.com.
