This new season six different exhibitions to visit at the CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux.

Alejandro Jodorowsky
This exhibition is the first retrospective of an artist who has left his mark on generations of creators across domains ranging from cinema to visual arts, from theatre to cartoon, literature, tarot and many more. Alejandro Jodorowsky has overturned, modified and questioned our way of seeing and comprehending the world. His anti-conformist and pluralistic work demonstrates a symbolic, philosophical and aesthetic force, reaching beyond the boundaries of art. Greek architect and designer Andreas Angelidakis has been invited to create an architecture within the architecture of the museum—an unprecedented project which will celebrate Jodorowsky’s eclectic and atypical career. This spectacular and emblematic space, morphed into a large scene of experimental theatre, will provide the spectators with a unique opportunity to experience “total art.”

Curator: María Inés Rodríguez
Associate curator: François Poisay
Architecture of the exhibition: Andreas Angelidakis

This exhibition is recognized as being of “Intérêt national” by the “Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication / Direction générale des patrimoines / Service des musées de France”. As such it benefits exceptionally from financial support from the French State

This exhibition is supported by The Friends of the CAPC and ABKCO Films.

The CAPC musée d’art contemporain extends its sincere gratitude to Pascale Montandon Jodorowsky
for her generous collaboration.

Arin Rungjang
Mongkut
Arin Rungjang is known for deftly revisiting historical material and overlapping major and minor narratives across multiple times, places, and languages. His interest lies in lesser-known aspects of Thai history and their intersection with the present. With the video installation and sculpture Mongkut, Arin Rungjang puts the crown—one of Thailand’s cherished symbolic forms—at the axis of his inquiry and recalls the intensification of French-Thai relations during the 19th century. His delicate approach layers public and private, past and present, original and copy, deliberately offering novel yet partial tales of Thailand’s qualified sovereignty. 

Curator: Erin Gleeson
Co-produced with Jeu de Paume, Paris.

This exhibition is co-produced by Jeu de Paume, Paris, Fondation Nationale des Arts Graphiques et
Plastiques and CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux.

The Friends of the CAPC contribute to the production of the artworks in this programme.

José Antonio Suárez Londoño
Muestrario (Samples)
The variety of drawings, sketchbooks, prints and rubber stamps José Antonio Suárez Londoño has produced since the 1970s constitute an immense body of work, each series demonstrating an impeccable technique and all focusing on the everyday, expressed through a unique and highly distinctive iconography. However, it is Suárez Londoño’s oeuvre as a whole which defines the unique nature of his artistic practice: his constant, daily activity which simultaneously gives rise to a type of inventory of the world and a personal diary.

Curator: Yara Sonseca Mas
Co-produced with La Casa Encendida, Madrid and MAMM, Medellín.
