Carré d’art

Contemporaine de Nîmes

April 5 to September 22, 2024

Alassan Diawara & Zineb Sedira

Alassan Diawara has imagined a new photographic ensemble, for which he spent several months touring Nîmes and the surrounding area, making numerous encounters. Through slices of life, the young Belgian photographer’s images explore youth, the links between different generations in families and communities, and seek to capture a certain essence of the imagination of the Gard and Camargue regions. Her photographs are set in dialogue with a body of work by Zineb Sedira, which addresses the subject of family and cultural transmission. The artist, who represented France at the Venice Biennale in 2022, also mentored Alassan Diawara in the construction of his project. The installation presented at Carré d’Art – musée d’art contemporain de Nîmes, conceived jointly by the two artists, offers new perspectives on the ways in which histories and cultures are constructed over generations.


Contemporaine de Nîmes

April 5 to September 22, 2024

Hugo Laporte & Katja Novitskova

At Carré d’Art – musée d’art contemporain de Nîmes, artists Hugo Laporte and Katja Novitskova propose the foundations of a museum and archaeological institution from a time we don’t yet know, yet not so far from our own. It brings together what could be the traces and artifacts of a humanity yet to come, grappling with increasingly troubling ecological, technological, geopolitical and cultural issues. The “Oracle Museum” is built around a fictitious museography, featuring a wide variety of objects, images, sounds, mythologies and characters made by the artists with machines and artificial intelligence, to give us a glimpse of a future that is still avoidable.
