Julie Maroh, author of the highly acclaimed comic strip Blue is a Warm Colour, is seizing the CAPC with the illustrator Maya Mihindou, and presenting a new opus: the exhibition Procession.

Procession is a visual narrative occupying 11,000 square feet, which plunges visitors into a story of conflict and cohabitation, based as much on a unprecedented presentation of works from the CAPC collection as on drawings connecting them (stencils, tags, mini frescoes, graffiti, enlarged drawings, etc.). The exhibition takes artworks hostage whilst becoming a gigantic comic strip illustration. It weaves the web of a social and political story whose characters—emotion-characters—question our perception of the Other, as well as the museum’s capacity to invite visitors to follow a story put together from scratch.

Procession is based upon graffiti, stencils, wall drawings, enlarged drawings and watercolors by Julie Maroh and Maya Mihindou and uses works by: 
Miquel Barceló, Jean-Charles Blais, François Boisrond, Mike Bouchet, Pierre Buraglio, Claude Caillol, Robert Combas, Hervé Di Rosa, Chohreh Feyzdjou, Fabrice Hyber, Louis Jammes, Anne Marie Jugnet, Jannis Kounellis, Skafte Kuhn, Shimrit Lee, Richard Long, Mario Merz, Annette Messager, Pierre Molinier, Jean-Pierre Raynaud, Georges Rousse, Lili Renaud Dewar, Andres Serrano, Jean-Paul Thibeau, Johannes Van Der Beek

Procession is an exhibition written and designed by Julie Maroh and Maya Mihindou and initiated by Alexis Vaillant, Chief Curator at the CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux.

The CAPC was founded in 1973 by Jean-Louis Froment, and quickly became a landmark in the French and international art scene. The CAPC, housed in the former impressive warehouse the Entrepôt Lainé, was designated a museum in 1984 and became the Musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux. It houses an important collection of mid- to late 20th-century French and international art.
