Lacan, l'exposition

Dec 31, 2023 — May 27, 2024 | Centre Pompidou-Metz, Metz, France

Curated by Marie-Laure Bernadac and Bernard Marcadé, the exhibition at the Centre Pompidou-Metz will be the first dedicated to Jacques Lacan.
Over 40 years after the psychoanalyst’s death, it seemed urgent to plan an exhibition highlighting the unique links between Jacques Lacan and art, by putting into perspective the works he himself referenced, the artists who paid tribute to him, as well as the modern and contemporary works that can provide an echo to the great conceptual orientations of his thought.

Lacan opened up an innovative space that is at the heart of our modernity and of our contemporary experience. Today we are debating issues of sex, love, identity, gender, power, belief or disbelief, all questions for which the psychoanalyst provided precious reference points.
