Luis Camnitzer included in the group exhibition Groupe Mobile, curated by Mélanie Bouteloup and Virginie Bobin at Villa Vassilieff, Paris.
Villa Vassilieff will open its doors with an exhibition entitled Groupe Mobile, gathering some sixty international artists and researchers.
Villa Vassilieff, a cultural establishment owned by the City of Paris, is located in the heart of Montparnasse, on the site of Marie Vassilieff’s former studio, which until 2013 housed the Musée du Montparnasse. It is run by Bétonsalon — Center for art and research, which is thus opening its second site of activities. Villa Vassilieff is conceived as a place for working and living.
Today, Villa Vassilieff intends to reconnect with this history by inviting artists and researchers to look at past and present resources of Montparnasse from a contemporary perspective. Through exhibitions, seminars, workshops, projections and encounters of all kinds, the Villa strives to shake up art’s place in society in particular by questioning the role and uses of heritage.
