Ahlam Shibli. Phantom Home
The Jeu de Paume presents the retrospective exhibition of the artist Ahlam Shibli (b. 1970, Palestine). Her images are anchored in current events, not through the urgency of a witness account but in the need to reestablish a critical distance through the profound transformation brought by a subjective regard. Phantom Home will bring together six photographic series that encapsulate Shibli’s investigation into different ways of understanding the word “home.” The exhibition also includes Death (2011–12), Shibli’s latest photographic series, especially conceived for this retrospective, which shows the efforts of Palestinian society to preserve the presence of those who lost their lives fighting against the occupation. Curators: Marta Gili, Carles Guerra, João Fernandes and Isabel Sousa Braga

Lorna Simpson
Whether for still or moving picture productions, Lorna Simpson (b. 1960) uses her camera as catalyst to question identity and gender, genres and history, race and class, fact and fiction, memory and meanings. Assumptions of photographic “truth” are challenged and qualified—indeed redirected—by the images she creates that are inseparable from the texts she writes to accompany them, by the soundings she chooses for videos, or by her pairings of vintage photographs with newly made renderings. The Jeu de Paume presents Lorna Simpson’s first large-scale exhibition in Europe beginning with her earliest photo-text pieces of the 1980s through her newest video installation, Chess, 2013, which makes its debut in Paris. Curator: Joan Simon

An Exhibition – An Event
Suite for exhibition(s) and publication(s),
third movement
This exhibition, conceived by Mathieu Copeland, guest curator of the 6th Satellite program of the Jeu de Paume, examines the moment when the image becomes an abstraction of itself until it disappears in favor of the event. The event should be envisaged in its widest sense: a musical score of an event, a suggested reading, or an action that takes place in the ancillary spaces allocated to the Satellite program. Mathieu Copeland’s proposal explores what happens in neutral contexts and how a formal presence is activated in them. With Maria Eichhorn, Tim Etchells and Mieko Shiomi.

The exhibition Ahlam Shibli. Phantom Home is organized and produced by the Jeu de Paume, Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) and Fundação de Serralves-Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves, Porto.

The exhibition Lorna Simpson is co-organized by the FEP – Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, Minneapolis, and the Jeu de Paume, in association with the Haus der Kunst, Munich.

The Fondation Nationale des Arts Graphiques et Plastiques contributes to the production of works of the Satellite program.

The Jeu de Paume is subsidized by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication.
It is supported by Neuflize Vie, its principal partner.
