Commissaire | Curator: Zoë Chan

From January 20th 2018 to March 17th 2018
Performing Lives

Through the exhibition Performing Lives, curator Zoë Chan is interested in video, especially in its documentary form, in which artists have mixed the codes, drawing both on the informational nature of the medium and on the world of televised and cinematic spectacle. Focusing on various cultural groups—elderly Inuit women, a Rom community in Paris, residential school survivors, Guatemalan migrant workers, Twin Peaks fans—these narrative works reflect on the representation of the subjects in order to go beyond the conventional exhibition of bodies associated with the documentary genre.
