Collaboration
Throughout the year, Rencontres Internationales collaborates with various museums and art centres, schools and festivals on screenings, exhibitions and general activities. In this way, we aim to further support the works in our programme and create new exchanges among artists, professionals, and the public. Browse information about screenings in the series "Moving_image, A Contemporary ABC" from October 2012 to March 2015 at the Gaîté Lyrique in Paris. It offers a laboratory for discovery and reflection dedicated to contemporary practices of the moving image. Video, cinematic and multimedia works are presented as an Alphabet book. Beyond Les Rencontres Internationales, video and multimedia exhibitions are curated at the invitation of museums and art centres. They offer critical and progressive insight into areas with shifting boundaries, bringing together the aesthetic, social and political questions of our time, including issues related to changing modes of production and distribution. Beyond Les Rencontres Internationales, screenings are curated at the invitation of museums, art centres, art schools, movie theatres and festivals, in order to reach different audiences and contribute to a wider dissemination of the programmed works. Parallel to the screenings and exhibitions, certain collaborations take the form of multidisciplinary projects, conferences and round tables. Others take the form of temporary, artistic endeavours.

Les 6 pièces de cette exposition constituent une étude anthropologique de la globalisation, et de l’abandon des espaces en tant que lieux. Le changement d’échelle visuelle produit une réalité paradoxale, ici mise en parallèle avec une confrontation de différentes réalités sociales: une articulation critique et autoréflexive que les artistes ici réunis développent au travers de figures et de formes esthétiques singulières, enracinées en autant de réalités distinctes.

Tabacalera de Madrid
Exhibition | Apr. 12-21; 2010
L'exposition de cette année à la Tabacalera pourrait être considérée comme un second chapitre après l'exposition présentée dans ce même espace en 2009. Une interrogation du lieu, de son passé et de l'histoire contemporaine dans laquelle il s'inscrit reste profondément présente. Alors que l'année dernière nous avions souhaité laisser l'espace d'exposition ouvert à ses espaces adjacents et littéralement éclairer les bureaux vides et les couloirs désaffectés comme autant de témoignages d'une société révolue encore à portée de regard, nous avons choisi cette année d'occulter ces espaces, de le replier sur lui-même en quelque sorte. Comme le signe d'une incertitude et d'un devenir. Le signe d'une condition du regard.
