2014 // Support of Dan Finsel’s and Carter Mull’s exhibition

expensive_friends_2013_2014_01

Carter Mull puts the visitors face to a dense installation combining paintings, luminous sculptures hanging from the ceiling, a video, a mural drawing 7 metres long and hundreds of pages laid on the floor. Strong couleurs, logos, typefaces and screen shots of online shops for hipsters make up the meticulous pictural matter of the artist, through which he questions the status and the production of consumer goods and art.

First personal exhibition in Europe for the American artist Dan Finsel (born in 1982, lives in Los Angeles), Becoming Her, for Him, for Her: Becoming Him, for Her, for She (Becoming Me, for Me, for Me.) lays the radical base for an intense visual and psychological universe that explores in a corrosive and emotional manner family mythologies and frenetic multiple personality troubles in today’s Los Angeles.

2013 // Support of the Markus Schinwald exhibition

ph_f_deval_mairie_de_bordeaux_29

The CAPC’s nave is plunged in darkness. A gigantic brass tubular structure straddles the space. Painted skies and retouched portraits hanging on wires are being as if launched into the void. The walls are covered with Brinjal. Tumblers play chess and children’s puppets bang the metal tips of their shoes on the floor. A spiral Eiffel stairway links the floor and the ceiling, 45 feet high. Large hangings hide the architecture, a double mirror projection of the film Orient spins in a loop and looks at itself from a huge triangular bench which cuts the nave in four. A false ceiling with holes in it lets through a purplish light, while a figure on a suspended diving board vibrates with the variations of light. Welcome inside Markus Schinwald’s mechanical theatre. A space made to measure for the CAPC’s nave, which gropes as much as it traps.

The Friends of the CAPC support this important exhibition.

In December 2007, Jean-Paul Thiveau deposits part of his archives at the CAPC museum of contemporary art. Brought together in a green metal trunk, it is made up of drawing books, photographs, naturalised animals, various traces and finds a legitimate place next to the 30 artworks of the artist belonging to the CAPC’s collection and in the Library where there are many traces of his personal and collective exhibitions held here from 1974 to 1996.

2013 // Support to the cycle of conferences thought up by François Cusset

Thinking… To see
What the critic tells us today

101858_1368536201_capc-horowitz_360x420p

François Cusset invites 8 major intellectuals to speak at the CAPC. Eight conference-events, to experiment directly with the power of evocation, elucidation and revelation linked to contemporary critical thought. Eight thinkers, to sse the world differently whilst renewing with the etymology of the word “theory”, the theorein, that was used by the Greeks to qualify the aptitude et see what is to come, what is new. Eight voices to rethink utopia, emotion, resemblance, sex, debt, the body, the brain and politics in a new light.
 
Professor at the University Paris Ouest Nanterre, former director of the Bureau du Livre Français at New York, radio and newspaper columnist, François Cusset is the author of several essays of reference, such as French Theory and The Decade (La Découverte, 2003 and 2006). As well as a first novel, published in the Autumn of 2012 with P.O.L. editions: A l’abri du déclin du monde.

2011 // Support to the cycle of conferences on the Traffic exhibition

Exposition_Traffic_capcMusAce_Bordeaux_du_26-01_au_24-03-1996_photo_F__Delpech4b_preview
 

Proposed by Nicolas Bourriaud, the exhibition Traffic was shown at the CAPC from January to March 1996. At a time when “relational aesthetics” was finding its theoretical reasoning, the exhibition became a live expression of it.

Fifteen years later, the CAPC looks back on this event and proposed to build an archive a posteriori of the event, retracing the History of the exhibition through speech. All throughout the year different personnalities will be invited to speak about what they have seen and done in Traffic
