DO WE DREAM UNDER THE SAME SKY

May 14–September 23, 2018
The new iteration of the site specific large scale installation DO WE DREAM UNDER THE SAME SKY will be comprised of an open-air kitchen, a herbal garden and a communal dining area where visitors can eat, drink and relax in a convivial atmosphere, while engaging in discussions and investigations about practices of sustainability, the geopolitics of food, and building technologies in the era of the Anthropocene.

Arthur Jafa: APEX
From May 14, 2018
Following last year’s Love Is the Message, The Message is Love, acclaimed filmmaker, cinematographer, and visual artist Arthur Jafa presents here his seminal video APEX (2013) for the first time in France. The striking music-driven 8-minute video work proposes a vibrant scenario in which the histories drawn from the African American narrative of Blackness bear universal significance.

Amar Kanwar: Such a Morning
From May 14, 2018
Amar Kanwar has spent his career gathering luminous scraps of testimony to chronicle the resilience of India’s most vulnerable. He repeatedly cajoles and blandishes light to offer stories in which darkness never reigns supreme and human beings rarely, if ever, submit to obscurity. Darkness in his films and in particular in his latest one, Such a Morning (2017), which premiered at documenta 14, invites both the possibility for revelation and the brilliance of protest.

Gilbert & George, The Great Exhibition, 1971-2016
July 2, 2018–January 6, 2019
At a time when Gilbert & George have decided to put an end to their artistic production and reflect on their one-of-a-kind half century collaboration, LUMA presents a major retrospective curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Daniel Birnbaum that seeks to capture and revel in Gilbert & George’s unique universe. Featuring a selection of historical works deemed by the artists themselves as the most representative of their career, Gilbert & George: The Great Exhibition (1971–2016) will travel to four major institutions after its opening in Arles.

Pipilotti Rist: Pixel Forest
July 2–November 4, 2018
Pixel Forest by Pipilotti Rist is one of the most recent works by the Zurich-based artist, presented here for the first time in France. The installation comprised of 3,000 LED lights, resembles a movie screen that has exploded into the space, immersing the viewer in a room-size 3-dimensional video. When walking into this forest of lights, the walls around seem to disappear. Video is used as a source of enlightening radiance that melts tenderly with the surroundings and blurs the lines between object, environment, image, and light.

Lily Gavin: A Story with Vincent
From July 2, 2018
A recent graduate from Bard College, Lily Gavin presents at the Grande Halle a captivating set of images produced when she was invited to join as a set photographer the 8-week film shoot of Julian Schnabel’s forthcoming new feature film At Eternity’s Gate about the life of Vincent Van Gogh in Arles, coming out later this year.

L.A. Dance Project
Performances throughout July 2018
Benjamin Millepied’s L.A. Dance Project returns to Arles for its third season. This year, the performers will be in residence in the recently renovated performing arts venue La Formation in the Parc des Ateliers. This is the third building renovated by Selldorf Architects.

L.A. Dance Project’s summer program includes new works by Benjamin Millepied and guest choreographers, which will be performed for the first time outdoors, in the open-air courtyard of Les Forges at the Parc des Ateliers. Members of the public will also be invited to attend the company’s weekly dance rehearsals at the new performing arts space La Formation.
