Listen to your eyes
As part of Diagonales: Sound, Vibration, And Music
26 February – 18 April 2010

49 Nord 6 Est – FRAC Lorraine, Metz
Opening: Thursday 25 February, 19.30 pm
and
École Supérieure d’Art in Metropolitan Métropole, Metz
Opening: Thursday 25 February, 18.00 pm

The exhibition Listen to your eyes is the first event in the series. Diagonales : son, vibration et musique (Diagonals: sound, vibration, and music), originated by Centre national des arts plastiques (CNAP), combines visits to exhibitions in ten regions in France, as well as in Benelux, and brings together nineteen contemporary art centers around a common issue: the place of sound and music in contemporary creation from the 1960s to the present, as seen through a selection of works from the Centre national des arts plastiques.

Listen to your eyes is a twofold exhibition shown simultaneously at 49 Nord 6 Est – FRAC Lorraine and at the École Supérieure d’Art in Metropolitan Métropole (ÉSAMM).

This exhibition is, first of all, a site-specific work, conceived and produced for the event: a silent, luminous injunction of an eponymous piece by Maurizio Nannucci. On the roof of ÉSAMM, overlooking the city, Listen to your Eyes made itself at home.

Praise of silence, paradoxically, by those who are confined to it and by those who seek it to better overcome it. A selection of works inciting us to get rid of our automatisms and preconceptions, to detach ourselves from the norm, and to open up onto possibilities.
