Archives A bitter sweet legacy Past: June 5 → July 26, 2014 For this exhibition, the artists realised research and workshop based creations in which they conceived a multitude of works in parallel, where works liberally influenced others.

Archives Sleepwalking Past: March 21 → May 24, 2014 The exhibition, “Sleepwalking”, takes its title from the large work that presents the back torso of a woman sandwiched between a field of words used to describe aspects of painting, some readable others in reverse and an ambiguous abstract space constructed as an architectural drawing leading the eye into deep space.
Archives Gregory Cumins — Paintings & Drawings Past: January 17 → March 15, 2014 Gregory Cumins studied sculpture at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts Paris under English artist Richard Deacon. Deeply affected by this training, his painting tends to merge in one single ground image and space, compressing the volume into one single layer in a way that creates a visual perturbation for the viewer.
Archives Alors, ils se mirent à parler du temps Past: November 16 → December 21, 2013 For this exhibition, the gallery has, for the first time, invited the 6 artists it represents to work on this reflection.

Past: September 12 → October 31, 2013 For his first solo exhibition, Stefane Perraud summons viewers to follow him on an introspection of a collection of artworks that have been staged as an archaeological metaphor.

Archives Sur la mauvaise pente Past: June 22 → July 27, 2013 For the curator Nabila Mokrani, to rethink the traditional exhibition format through scenography or set design is to start from a ground based point of view — the relevant place to consider a hanging — to allow the effect of vertigo to take hold and to defy for a time the immobility of the body.
Archives Sciences et Fictions Past: May 16 → June 15, 2013 Sciences&Fictions is a reflection on the sharing of knowledge between two opposed worlds, modern sciences and fictional narratives, on the transition of imaginary constructions from one to the other.

Sciences et Fictions Past: Tuesday, May 21, 2013 2:30 PM → 7:30 PM Un colloque explore cette même question de l’imbrication des imaginaires des sciences et des narrations fictionnelles d’un point de vue plus théorique avec la participation de Pierre Cassou-Nogues, Ludovi… Lecture
Archives Petra Kohle & Nicolas Vermot Petit-Outhenin — It depends entirely upon the hue of the lighting Past: March 13 → May 11, 2013 The enduring fallacy that the camera never lies is the starting-point for a newwork by Swiss duo Petra Köhle and Nicolas Vermot Petit-Outhenin. Interweaving photography’s invisible processes of selection, exclusion and suppression with other discriminative practices, whether cultural, political or archival, it constitutes a meditation on the elusiveness of truth.
Archives Lily Hibberd — Les Aimants Past: January 10 → March 9, 2013 “Les Aimants” retraces the evolution and emergence of the sense of infant desire.

Archives Eschatologie Past: November 9 → December 21, 2012 If, as the Mayans seemed to predict by ending their calendar on December 21st 2012, and if in the Bible, or more generally in all religions, there is a forewarning of the end of the world, then an Apocalypse there will be!

Archives Monstre s’affiche — Les partitions visuelles Past: May 10 → July 21, 2012 How is it possible to set up an exhibition as an act of edition? How to think about an exhibition as an extension of the magazine? To give an answer to these two interrogations, we try to formulate a protocol. Giving the idea that in the magazine only a part of an artwork is shown, we chose to show no entire physical artwork.
Archives Après tout rien Past: March 9 → May 5, 2012 “Après tout rien” is a journey in Another World. “I lost the ground and travelled in mind. I left a sterile world, and came alongside a mineral and icy, but pure and demanding country. I was met by its motto on a glass banner that said we were not clear enough with ourselves. The trip must be internal too: it is the key to live in my world.”
Archives La Part de l’ombre — Exposition collective Past: January 13 → March 3, 2012 The exhibition planned for next year has the density of a storm-filled sky: invasive, over-the-top and massive, François Mazabraud’s wooden sculpture faces works by Mateo Andrea and Oliver Beer.
Archives Oliver Beer — Projection The Resonance Project Past: Saturday, March 3, 2012 5 PM → 8 PM Oliver Beer taps into the innate responses we have to our immediate surroundings to redefine our relationships with the spaces around us.
