COLLECTOR - Artworks from Centre national des arts plastiques - 5th OCT 2011 > 01st JAN 2012 _ lille3000 & CNAP

THE EXHIBITION

The Centre national des arts plastiques (CNAP) and lille3000 are teaming up for the first time to present the Collector exhibition, which will take over the Tripostal in Lille for three months.

Celebrating the collection’s 220 year anniversary, Collector is an interdisciplinary, manifesto exhibition fully made of artworks from the CNAP. The exhibition pays tribute to the State as a collector. For two centuries, the State has historically been the main collector of its times, building up, little by little, our culturel inheritance. Collector, the one who collects in Latin, sums up one of the main missions of CNAP, which is to enrich the national collections. However, the word ‘collector’ also implies a critical distance, as it designates an object that as become iconic because it’s rare, as well as a massively available object./p>

Mainly inspired by social, political, economic and artistic evolutions since the end of the 1960s, Collector invites us to think about representation systems, hesitating between reproducibility of the image, media-related image and image of the self. As an overview of the last few years of contemporary creation, Collector goes back and forth between the present and the past to make it easier to follow artistic trends and the intensity of the reflection. Thus, almost 150 artworks by 86 artists are displayed for the first time, breaking down the barriers between plastic arts and photography, design and video…

The exhibition especially cares for every kind of audience accessing modern art, giving people the keys to tackle today’s artworks. Considering this, a wide program of outreach, so that everyone can join in, is devised. Also, an important beyond the walls programmation (concerts and conferences) as well as the making of four totally new artworks publicly commissioned, will accompany Collector. On the occasion of this event, three museums of Lille métropole – LaM in Villeneuve d’Ascq, La Piscine in Roubaix and MUba, musée Eugène Leroy in Tourcoing, will display their permanent collections again, more especially artworks from CNAP they have in their keep. Collector is presented par the Centre national des arts plastiques and lille3000, with the support of the Ville de Lille.

 

General curating and co-ordination: Sébastien Faucon, collection manager at CNAP. Curators: Pascal Beausse, Claire Bernardi, Pascale Cassagnau, Emilia Philippot, collections managers at CNAP.
