From June 30 to September 16, 2012, the MAC/VAL (Museum of Contemporary Art of the Val-de-Marne) is holding a special exhibition bringing together works by ten artists focusing on questions including:
- How can the body be the focus of affirmation or resistance?
- How does one find one’s place in the world as an artist, and in a larger sense, as an individual?
- How can artists position themselves as subjects in relation to the Other?
This summer, the MAC/VAL will explore these questions from the artist’s perspective, reflecting upon mankind’s environment, our construction of that environment in an increasingly homogenized world, and on the role of the artist. By coming to [48°47’34’’ N / 2°23’14’’ E] (the geographical coordinates of the MAC/VAL, in Vitry-sur-Seine) visitors will be able to follow several circuits centered on these questions.
