In view of major political crises, wars, repression of freedom, vandalism and natural disasters, what do works of art represent for us? And what are we prepared to do to protect a masterpiece?

The exhibition brings together a series of archival photographs of the history of France reworked by the artist around a monumental sculpture in the form of a crate for transporting artworks the size of a precious and invisible masterpiece.

In partnership with the Semaine des cultures étrangères 2019

Curators: Ami Barak and Catherine Bédard
