Carte blanche to Christian Marclay
On the occasion of the handing over of the keys to their future building, Photo Elysée and the mudac have given Christian Marclay carte blanche. Under the title Unpacking, the artist invests the new exhibition spaces with thousands of images found in their archives, treating the architecture as a blank canvas, giving it a spectacular dimension and offering us a unique glimpse into the collections of both museums.
The official inauguration of Photo Elysée and mudac took place on June 2022. The building will then open its doors to the public on June 2022 with a joint exhibition of the three Plateforme 10 museums on the theme of the railway.
