Mudam Luxembourg presents from 11 October 2008 seven new exhibitions: seven distinct projects (including 200 artworks by 80 artists from all generations) that prove once again that the museum is open to the diversity of approaches and media that go to make up contemporary art. The hanging is intended to be multi-disciplinary, illustrating reflections on visual arts as well as design or fashion. Various points of view are presented, through works that raise questions about territory, materials, formal exploration and contemporary society.

The exhibition Elo. Inner Exile – Outer Limits presents a snapshot of current artistic production in Luxembourg and examines a decade of effervescence in the art field. Certain artworks have been specially created for this event.

The itinerant project RRRIPP!! Paper Fashion is devoted to the use of materials that are similar to (or derived from) paper in fashion design. This exhibition, proposed by the Athens Cultural Organization ATOPOS, is both historical and prospective in approach.

The paintings by American artist Ena Swansea have a distanced view of contemporary society. Their elaborate preparation with graphite creates a rainy, mineral atmosphere that, combined with the framing and diaphanous colours, gives a sombre and disturbing image of Manhattan.

The exhibition Ettore Sottsass & Sottsass Associati presents pieces that resulted from the collaboration between Ettore Sottsass, one of the leaders of contemporary design, and the Manufacture nationale de Sèvres. It also presents architectural objects that were the fruit of the work carried out by the designer’s agency using the material Corian® (invented by DuPont).

Known for his performances as an actor and musician, John Lurie kept his painting activity a secret until 2004, the date of his first exhibition in New York. In the Mudam exhibition The Skeleton In My Closet Has Moved Out To The Garden he presents a series of paintings that are emblematic of his caustically humoristic aesthetic.

The project Go East I presents artworks by Roman Ondák and Zilvinas Kempinas that joined the Mudam collection thanks to a programme aimed at establishing a collection of artworks by Eastern European artists and sponsored by KBL European Private Bankers.

Finally, the exhibition Nouvelles Formes. Pierre Charpin à Sèvres presents a group of pieces resulting from work carried out by French designer on the catalogue of forms of the Manufacture nationale de Sèvres.
