Annual residency programme for curators at Noisy-le-Sec / Paris, France

. May 24, 2011 . 0 Comments

In the framework of the annual residency programme for curators at Noisy-le-Sec (suburbs of Paris), La Galerie is hosting this year Ala Younis, a curator from Jordan. Selected via a call for candidates, Ala Younis is in residence until July to achieve her project Outre mesures et programmes radio (Maps, timelines, radio programmes):

Outre mesures et programmes radio (Maps, timelines, radio programmes) is a two-part deliberation on the apprehensive construction of history. Basic tools of interpretation such as maps and personal timelines have been re-invented by the participating artists to reference a state, or to record the pulse of a societal body in perpetual change. The first part of this project is an exhibition showing artworks that explore individual positions within the larger collective and that construct specific narratives within general and mutating social, economic and political contexts. While collective history is unmade and rewritten with shapes imposed and disfigurements tolerated, personal narratives are inherited, lent and borrowed across epochs and generations.

The second part of the project is a series of workshops in which local residents and young visitors to the exhibition are invited to study elements of the works on display, and experiment with producing sound pieces themselves, to be broadcast on local and web radios. The radio culture and industry peaked in the mid twentieth century, its accessible nature has earned it a revival as a media for experimentation and documentation of contemporary art and revolutionary projects.

Since 2006, La Galerie has hosted foreign curators for an annual three-month residency, in order to support an exhibition in a French contemporary art centre and allowing a discovery of the Île-de-France contemporary scene (artists, professionals, other organizations…). The annual residency for curators at La Galerie is receiving the backing of DRAC Île-de-France (Ministry of Culture).
