Time: March 28 – September18, 2023
Location: MBAL, Le Locle
This group exhibition aims to explore the relationship between images and words in art. From the intimate pleasure of reading presented through masterpieces from the MBAL collection (e.g. Albert Anker, Pierre Bonnard, Alexandre Girod), the program progresses towards the slow and gradual linguistic invasion of images through the creations of international contemporary artists (Lenora de Barros, Philippe Decrauzat, Nora Turato et al). Photographs, videos, sculptures, concrete poems, all mediums mark this rich and playful exhibition, inviting the viewer to explore his relationship with the word.
A series of exhibitions accompanying conferences and performances, including “États généraux du magazine” (April 18 and 28 at the club 29 and MBAL).
