Overview

This exhibition is dedicated to the French artist Philippe Parreno. His title, June 8, 1968 - September 7, 2009, falls between two significant dates for him, that of June 8, 1968, the date of the death of Robert Kennedy whose transport by rail of the remains inspired him to the film June 8, 1968 shown here; and September 7, 2009, the closing date of this exhibition. Philippe Parreno deploys his project in three parts: the exhibition itself, a series of exceptional events with young audiences forming part of the exhibition, and the publication of an important catalog raisonné in duet with a children's story. This large-scale presentation of Philippe Parreno's work, as there has not been in France since 2002, constitutes a major chapter of the intervention he simultaneously provides in various prestigious international institutions, including the Kunsthalle de Zurich, the Museum of Modern Art in Dublin and Bard College in New York; with four exhibitions in a year and...

Philippe Parreno deploys his project in three parts: the exhibition itself, a series of exceptional events with young audiences forming part of the exhibition, and the publication of an important catalog raisonné in duet with a children's story.

This large-scale presentation of Philippe Parreno's work, as there has not been in France since 2002, constitutes a major chapter of the intervention he simultaneously provides in various prestigious international institutions, including the Kunsthalle de Zurich, the Museum of Modern Art in Dublin and Bard College in New York; with four exhibitions in a year and a half offering a global retrospective.

Continuing his reflection on the medium of the exhibition, Philippe Parreno uses the 1200 square meters of the South Gallery as a sensitive surface in perpetual mutation in order to offer "a journey through time" made up of original works and events. A ten-minute time loop, articulated around a projection on a giant screen of a 70mm film, is repeated every day for the duration of the exhibition.
