For the 40th anniversary of the Frac, the aim is both to rethink the institution’s history, written in particular through its collection, and to look towards shared and desirable futures.
The Gunaikeîon exhibition invites a number of curators to write their own narratives based on works from the collection and in encounter with other invited works. Traditionally, the gunaikeîon was the flat in Greek and Roman houses where women spent most of their time, and which was set apart so that they had no direct contact with the street. The aim of this exhibition, on the other hand, is to open up the spaces of the Frac’s Réserves and the Fondation Fiminco’s Chaufferie to the surrounding neighbourhoods and the sounds of the world. The exhibition will be divided into several chapters, with each of the curators updating the collection in the light of her own obsessions, which are rooted in contemporary society.
Curators : Jade Barget, Daisy Lambert, Camille Martin, Céline Poulin & Elsa Vettier
