La Maison Rouge

Theatre Of The World

19 Oct 2013 - 19 Jan 2014

19 October 2013 - 19 January 2014

a collaborative exhibition between the Museum of Old and New Art and the
Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery

curator : Jean-Hubert Martin
assistant curators : Nicole Durling, Olivier Varenne and Tijs Visser

For its tenth showing of a private collection, la maison rouge invites David Walsh, founder of the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Tasmania. Curator Jean-Hubert Martin has delved into David Walsh’s own collection, as well as that of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG), to show together apparently "heterogeneous" objects and question museal conventions. Théâtre du Monde strikes relations, whether corresponding or contrasting, between the form or meaning of these works of different origins. Unexpected resemblances are brought to light through themes such as eyes, body, double or war. An entire gallery is given over to an outstanding collection of Polynesian tapas.
