Cremona Contemporanea | Art Week stems from the need to reaffirm in Italy and abroad the value of Cremona through a dialogue between its places and contemporary artists. The cultural heritage in the city area, which counts numerous historic buildings, small and large squares, private galleries and disused spaces to be rediscovered, needs to be reactivated, enhanced and promoted.

Cremona has been a crossroads of changes, theater of interesting cultural and political ferments, tensions and conflicts, and has seen the passage of important families who have left traces which are still visible today. The project aims to give voice and life to this important artistic and cultural chapter (and capital) of the city and to witness the vitality and richness of the cultural and social status of Cremona.

A symbol of power, devotion, and seduction, as well as an indispensable tool for tactile exploration for workers and artists alike, the motif of the hand and glove is explored from the 16th century to contemporary art in this exhibition. Featuring a selection of works from the museum’s collections and enhanced by external loans, this thematic display sheds new light on the narrative functions of the hand, both bare and gloved. The drawings, prints, sculptures, paintings, and videos assembled here testify to the hands’ creative and symbolic power and their chosen accessories, gloves.

Curated by Philippe Piguet, historian, art critic, and independent curator, with the assistance of Margaux Farron, curatorial assistant.

Co-curators Jean-Marc Huitorel and Dominique Marchès have designed a particularly rich exhibition on the theme of the race and the message. Running as a means of transport, and even more so as an experience in its own right. In particular, the exhibition takes a message-bearing approach to running, in which the race and its message appear inseparable.

With Pierre Ardouvin, Christian Boltanski, Julia Borderie, Lilian Bourgeat, Nina Childress, François Curlet, Nicolas Debon, Anne Deguelle, Marcel Dinahet, Simon Faithfull, Richard Fauguet, Nina Ferrer-Gleize, Hamish Fulton, Zuzanna Janin, Adrienne Jouclard, Benoît Laffiché, Hervé Le Nost, Ndary Lô, Dominique Marchès, Yvan Messac, Joachim Monvoisin, Philippe Ramette, Germaine Richier, Jean-Jacques Rullier, Pierre Tal Coat, Pierre-Philippe Toufektchan, Muriel Toulemonde, Thomas Wattebled, Koffi Max Williams.

Art : Concept is pleased to announce the inauguration of the artwork by Jeremy Deller, Ask the Animals, and They Will Teach You, Wednesday, May 15, 2024, from 5 to 9 pm on the occasion of the opening of the “Rayon Jouets” exhibition at Hangar Y, Meudon/FR.

Both a sculpture and a children’s slide, Ask the Animals and They Will Teach You offers an alternative to the tradition of public monuments celebrating historical events or people elevated to the status of “heroes”. Here, Jeremy Deller pays tribute to one of the world’s oldest creatures, the chameleon, which, according to the inscription at the base of the sculpture, has lived on Earth for sixty million years. Now threatened with extinction, the chameleon is used here to challenge the idea that art in public spaces has no other vocation than to fulfil a decorative or commemorative function. By inviting children to slide along the reptile’s tongue, the monument becomes playful, inviting them to appropriate the space through play.

« Jacob Kassay’s works assimilate all the conditions in which they are exhibited. The same stands true of the expectations that these conventions have created for the production of art as well as other types of goods, such as those whose desirability conceals a dose of mystery and a dose of frustration. »
