For this first opus of the Whish You Were Here! Serie, focusing on the theme of Mobility, the two curators, Cyril Thomas and Jean-Luc Soret, have selected works by artists with very different aesthetic approaches: Annie Abrahams, Beatriz da Costa, Nicolas Frespech, Antti Laitinen, Albertine Meunier and Servovalve (Gregory Pignot and Alia Daval).
6×6/36 belongs to the series Wish You Were Here! — a series of thematic projects proposed by the Collectif NUNC, at the crossroad of printed and electronic publishing and new ways of exhibiting art. Three questions are at the basis of the project Wish You Were Here!: What is the role of exhibition catalogue for contemporary art? What is the relation between printed and electronic publication for exhibitions? How can artworks that are no longer « objects » be exhibited? In short, how to redesign and rethink exhibition and curation today?
