No Longer Showing.
Olivier Mosset presents what he terms a “group” show, underscoring how the legibility of any artwork is possible only in the context of a larger, living collectivity. Featuring paintings, a projection of Serge Bard's 1968 film Fun and Games for Everyone—a passage of which captures the audience for a Mosset exhibition opening in the wake of the May ‘68 protests in Paris—and performances by both New York art bands and Country Western groups from Mosset’s adopted home Tucson, Arizona, Exposition de groupe brings together the artist’s different social spheres by implication. The exhibition also includes an installation of motorcycles and paintings, as well as a video collaboration with Amy Granat and Drew Heitzler, on view at the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, 972 Fifth Avenue, New York (October 31–November 21). Curated by Sophie Claudel, Thomas Delamarre, and Tim Griffin. Co-presented with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy.
Exhibition Hours: Tues–Fri, 12–6pm; Sat 11–6pm FREE
Opening reception: October 30th, 6–8pm

One is not equal to zero, human is not ...Read On
