On Rape / Laia Abril

Biennale de l'Image Possible, Liège

Laia Abril

From September 19th to October 25th 2020

Laia Abril’s exhibition “On Rape” is the second chapter to her project A History of Misogyny. It expands her ongoing visual archive of the systemic control of women’s bodies across time and cultures. Abril focuses on the institutional rape throughout a series of conceptual portraits, that together with their testimonies symbolises the different systemic rape cultures — inside marriage, the church, the army or the school.

MAMCO Genève

Olivier Mosset

Exhibition from February 25th to december 6th 2020

Occupying virtually all the museum , MAMCO’s retrospective reviews his career over almost 60 years, from the early experiments of the 1960s to his monumental recent works, via the painter’s reflections on artistic appropriation, monochrome painting, and shaped canvases.

At the same time, several rooms are devoted to movements and artists with whom Mosset was or remains closely associated, allowing us to consider his work in a variety of different contexts. In addition to a section devoted to the activities led with Buren, Parmentier, and Toroni, the exhibition features works by Nouveaux Réalistes (notably Jean Tinguely and Daniel Spoerri, for whom Mosset worked as an assistant), experimental film-makers’ collective Zanzibar (with whom Mosset directed, acted in and produced a number of films), American “Radical painting” of the 1970s and 1980s (including Marcia Hafif and Joseph Marioni) and artists such as Sherrie Levine, Steven Parrino, Cady Noland, John Armleder, and Sylvie Fleury, with whom he has maintained a regular dialogue.

The exhibition is organized by Paul Bernard and Lionel Bovier.
