Danser Brut - Le corps instrument

Danser Brut - Le corps instrument

Lille Métropole Museum of Modern Art, Contemporary Art and Art Brut offers, in collaboration with Fluxum Foundation, a new version of its exhibition Danser Brut presented last autumn in Villeneuve-D'ascq (France). This unprecedented and transversal eye on dance, inspired by art brut, but also contemporary art and cinema, questions art work through the prism of gesture and movement.

The exhibition will strive to investigate the body’s modes of expression which can appear as enslaved, even alienated, while simultaneously also as forms of support for emancipation, for liberation. The exhibition will set out to shed light on an invisible dimension, made of gestures both ordinary and extraordinary.

With the works of:
Yüksel Arslan, Ulrich Bleiker, Jean-Martin Charcot, Charlie Chaplin, Catherine Contour, Merce Cunningham, André Deed, Fernand Deligny, Martine Deyres, Valeska Gert, Karlheinz Hein, Emile Josome Hodinos, Janmari, Albert londe, Maguy Marin, Gianfranco Mingozzi, Vaslav Nijinski, Lucile Notin-Bourdeau, Georg Wilhelm Pabst, Arnulf Rainer, Marga Berra Zubieta...

Thursday 28th of March, as of 6pm

In the presence of : 
Sébastien Delot, LaM director and chief curator 
Savine Faupin et Christophe Boulanger, exhibition curator
