WOLFGANG TILLMANS
WHAT IS DIFFERENT?

Wolfgang Tillmans is one of his generation’s leading artists. Since the early 1990s, his images have sometimes recalled the historic genres of still-life, landscape, portrait and abstraction. Each exhibition can be considered an installation where the images respond to each other based on correspondences, connections and recurrences. After two major exhibitions, at the Tate Modern in London and the Beyeler Foundation in Basel, the Nîmes show was specifically designed for the museum’s spaces and features some of the artist’s recent works.

Exhibition curator: Jean-Marc Prévost.

A DESIRE FOR ARCHEOLOGY, PERSPECTIVES ON THE FUTURE

This exhibition brings together four artists whose work is broadly inspired by archeology. Many artists today are producing work based on research into the notion of archives and memory as a way of questioning ideas of historical truth. If archaeology is traditionally associated with the discovery of objects such as architectural ruins or sculptures, what can be said today about the archaeology of images? The artists use different media—sculpture, installation, photography or video—to portray this desire, and look towards our past to understand the future.

Exhibition curator: Jean-Marc Prévost.

12 April - 4 November 2018.

Exhibitions accessible on presentation of the Rencontres d’Arles 2018 pass.
