Tania Mouraud

Retracing the career of this key contemporary artist from 1968 to
the present, this retrospective dedicated to Tania Mouraud was
initiated by the Centre Pompidou-Metz in close collaboration with
its partners and encompasses ten venues. Mouraud’s work has
continued to evolve over the years and closely examines the relationship
between art and social connections and history by alternately
exploring multiple media including painting, photography,
video, installation, urban intervention and sound. This retrospective
encompasses the following venue: Centre Pompidou-Metz,
Chapelle des Templiers, Saint-Pierre-aux-Nonnains, vitrine des
Galeries Lafayette, Galerie Toutouchic, Musée de la Cour d’Or,
49 Nord 6 Est – Frac Lorraine, Faux Mouvement – Centre d’art
contemporain, Galerie Octave Cowbell. And is present throughout
the city from 24 to 30 June 2015 with the re-production of City
Performance nº 1.

Covering 1100 sq. m. in Galerie 2 at Centre Pompidou-Metz, the
exhibition takes a look at Tania Mouraud’s career and artistic
practice, from her 1968 autodafe, a profoundly symbolic act of
destruction that ended her initial pictorial years, through to her
initiation and mediation rooms of 1970s, up to her most recent
works. The exhibition highlights her tenacious career, marked by
her encounters with prominent contemporary artists, as well as by
her personal life story. The selection of over 70 works of art, some
from the artist’s personal collection, unveil the portrait of a socially
engaged Tania Mouraud. Several historic works will be re-enacted
in the scope of the exhibition as well.
