Around the Day in Eighty Worlds

Group exhibition with works by Pratchaya Phinthong
CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux
Until February 27, 2021

Borrowing its title from an anthology of texts by Julio Cortázar, the exhibition Around the Day in Eighty Worlds revisits major works from the collection of the Capc under the angle of changing systems of representation. Like other European museums, the Capc built and developed its collection around a mainly male and Anglo-European vision of art, regardless of the fact that the history of Bordeaux since the seventeenth century has been steeped in its commercial and cultural relationships with Africa, Asia and the Americas. Now, in an era where cultural, social, and political factors affect how viewers – and art historians – interpret work, it is essential to look at public collections with fresh eyes. These collections must pave the way for a decentralised world that puts at the forefront those artists who, for various reasons (gender, nationality), were previously marginalised in the canon of art history.
