Regards sur l’art d’aujourd’hui.
Works recently acquired by the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris
The new display of the contemporary collections presents a selection of works created between 1973 and 2022 and exhibited in the collections’ galleries for the first time. These works were recently acquired by donation or purchase, thanks to the support of the Amis du Musée d’Art Moderne and its Comité pour la Création Contemporaine, as well as to the generosity of other donors.
The exhibition is divided into two distinct but organically linked groups. First, the works refer to writing as a form of expression and resistance and are read as signs and testimonies; they are sometimes invented in writing-painting. In a second set, the works question the position of the body and the forms of constraint suffered both in the context of the recent health crisis, following the Covid-19 pandemic, but also in resonance with the mutations of our societies, up to the current war in Ukrain.
The writing and the imaginary constitute an escape for the body, whether it is constrained or not. The importance of the writing modes in artistic creation is highlighted here in the way it can emancipate itself from reality and communicate with others. Links are woven between the means of communication of a digital world in constant growth and a contemporary artistic creation that follows its codes to better question its meaning.
The recent episodes of confinement and isolation, experienced collectively, have raised awareness. They invite us to take a different look at bodies and their representations. Through individualities that question their integrity and freedom, and in a reflection turned to the outside, the artists renew the conceptions of intimacy and “extimacy”.
