Exhibition Box in a suitcase at the Museum Alex Mylona – MMCA

The Museum Alex Mylona – MMCA and the French Institute of Greece present the exhibition Box in a suitcase- An homage to Marcel Duchamp by French contemporary artists which will run from February 22, 2014 until June 1, 2014.

The project refers directly to the Boîte en valise or Box in a suitcase that Marcel Duchamp made when he emigrated to the United States and proposes a reflection on the circulation of artworks and the promotion of artists. With this in mind, some 15 artists were invited to pose the question of presenting themselves and their work in a constantly changing context. Each was asked to create a work with the specific brief of putting a work in a suitcase (painting, installation, video or performance).

The project will be shown in a variety of institutions (exhibition spaces and Institut Français) abroad. All the crates will travel together, but not all the works will be systematically shown at each venue. Each place where the project is shown is responsible for the choice of works displayed and their technical installation and presentation (where necessary following instructions provided by the artist in the crate).

Curators of the exhibition are the Greek collaborator of the project Denys Zacharopoulos, Artistic Director of the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art and former Inspecteur Général of Fine Arts for the French Ministry of Culture and Art Historian Alexios Papazacharias.

The exhibition takes place in the context of the programme ‘Greece, France, Alliance 2014’.
