Melanie Manchot exhibition from 20 October 2018 to 24 February 2019
Opening on Friday 19 October, 6:30pm
Curator Frank Lamy assisted by Julien Blanpied

A real discovery for some or the confirmation of a unique vision for others, this first major monographic show of Melanie Manchot’s work in France looks back at 20 years of creation through a selection of pieces created between 1998 and 2018, and widens the scope of her research thanks to new productions.
Melanie Manchot appropriates the museum space and strips it bare with a very open scenography weaving intimate and shared spaces where each work defines its own territory. As she restages her works, the artist opens a dialogue between them and furthers a global take on her production. In her video installations, Melanie Manchot relies on the scale of the projection and the multiple-screen display involving the body of the viewers and their relationship to the pieces, as they are required to be active and multiply viewpoints.
The time of the exhibition is also that of the production of a new participative video -to be finalized on the last week of the show. In the framework of this video, the museum room becomes like a film set, a scenery around the work-in-progress.

Melanie Manchot is born in Germany in 1966.
She currently lives and works in London.

« Persona grata »

A collaborative project between the the MAC VAL and Musée national de l’histoire de l’immigration
From 16 October 2018 to 20 January 2019
Press opening on 15 October 2018

The Musée national de l’histoire de l’immigration and the MAC VAL - Musée d’art contemporain du Val-de-Marne are collaborating to present a project questioning the notion of hospitality through the prism of contemporary creation.
Together, the two institutions- a social museum that value contemporary creation and a contemporary art museum that tackles social issues- are happy to present “Persona grata”, an exhibition organized over the two locations with a rich cultural programming: an occasion for artists to explore all the dimensions of what constitutes or corrodes the notions of hospitality and alterity through their own vision and sensitivity.

The acceleration of migratory flows and the growing place these issues occupy in the public debate increasingly question the foundations of our societies. On one hand, camps and walls mushroom and confirm the irreversible setback of our hospitality duty, while on the other, citizen involvement grows to help, support and welcome migrants. Is the answer of today’s harsh society to bring emergency assistance rather than implement long-term and effective hospitality policies?
In this context and from the collections of both museums, this artistic partnership aims at highlighting a contemporary creation that reflects today’s world as well as tackling these issues from the point of view of the many artists who have explored the theme of hospitality over the last years.
The exhibition will provide a platform for artists to share their analyses, critics and feelings toward national fold, behaviors of rejection and revolt. These artistic testimonies will help us think these questions through and look at ourselves yet without any moralistic judgment.
Through this unique and engaged partnership project, the Musée national de l’histoire de l’immigration and the MAC VAL look to raise awareness, foster reflection and debate, and call our certitudes into question. Although central, the issues related to migratory flows do not cross out other neglected –and little known- forms of hospitality toward helpless and weakened populations. The exhibition will bring forth proposals around community life, care for others, the necessity of nursing homes, public health-care and hospitality centers held in a spirit of attentiveness, kindness and sharing we should rehabilitate.

Under the eyes of philosophers Fabienne Brugère and Guillaume Le Blanc, authors of La fin de l’hospitalité, this two-fold exhibition will be complemented by a cultural programming: Welcome! at the Musée national de l’histoire de l’immigration (6 October-11 November 2018) and Attention fragile at the MAC VAL (30 November, 1 and 2 December 2018).
