"Constellations". Universes that mark the History of Art

The artistic exhibition Constellations reveals artistic heterogeneity with more than 40 French and foreign artists, highlighting the contemporary scene.

The artistic exhibition Constellations brings together for the first time a small part of the collections of the Fonds Régionalaux d'Art Occitanie Contemporània (Montpellier and Toulouse) and the Regional Museum of Contemporary Art Occitanie in Serinhan. The exhibition offers one of the best panoramas of artistic creation in recent decades and underlines the strong commitment of the Occitanie region to the benefit of contemporary art. Pioneering institutions in contemporary heritage, support for artists and production, FRAC and contemporary art museums continue to invent new ways of approaching, transmitting, disseminating, reading art and the changing environment.

A unique experience at the Constellations art show

The exhibition brings together around forty French and foreign artists, and different generations who add very personal constructions and universes that have marked the history of art in the last fifty years. Under the title Constellations, the exhibition evokes a set of stars/works whose projections on the celestial vault are close enough for visitors to connect with them through imaginary lines, thus tracing a figure in the cosmos. The intention of Constellations is to show a wide range of possibilities avoiding any unidirectional aesthetic line.

Identities, borders and values. The keys to this artistic exhibition This exhibition does not spare the polysemy of the subtitle, and seeks to affirm at the same time the power of a cycle, a time and a light by offering a look at a scene that has been projected in a globalized world as well as the notions of identities, borders, values have become disproportionately complex. Among many others, the exhibition features artists such as Tjeerd Alkema, Dove Allouche, Jean-Marc Andrieu, Laurette Atrux-Tallau, Renaud Auguste, Dormeuil, Marion Baruch, Abdelkader Benchamma, Christian Boltanski, Belkacem, Boudjellouli, Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, Andrea Büttner, Nina Childress, Henry Codax, Johan Creten, Philippe Decrauzat, Hubert Duprat, Joan Duran, Mimosa Echard, Richard Fauguet, Dominique Figarella, Roland Flexner, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Alain Jacquet, Ann Veronica Janssens, Véronique Joumard, Rolf Julius, Yayoi Kusama and Bertrand Lamarche. All these artists demonstrate with their works the heterogeneity of the art world, the breakdown of styles, media and fragmented thinking that symbolize the reflection of the contemporary art scene.

Convergence between the unexpected and the plurality of intersections in Constellations

In short, Constellations does not aim to make a single star shine, but to reveal a sum of plural intersections. Without pretending to be exhaustive, the exhibition reflects different artistic sensibilities favoring a range of themes and concepts present in the world of art. Instead of trying to smooth the gaps between works, artificially creating an aesthetic, the exhibition prefers to play with the differences, to mark what is opposed to them.
