Ruines, Gerard & Kelly

For several years, Carré d'Art has opened its programming and collection to performance and contemporary dance.

Gerard & Kelly's work has developed around the project "Modern Living" which is a series of performances, video installations, sculptures, and drawings through which they question architectural projects that thwart traditional bourgeois and patriarchal usage.

Monogram, Rosalind Nashashibi

Rosalind Nashashibi is a filmmaker and painter living in London of Palestinian and Northern Irish origin. Her films use a language that is both documentary and speculative, based on the observation of her own life and the world around her
in dialogue with elements of fiction or science fiction, often proposing models of collective life. His paintings also evoke real or more dreamlike spaces where people or animals can appear, often sharing the picture plane with signs and apparitions.
