• The Seventies: Art in Question

    CAPC musée d'art contemporain
    7 rue Ferrère
    October 18, 2002–January 19, 2003

    With a new generation of artists revisiting the experiments of the ’70s and cultivating legacies as diverse as Land art, post-Minimalism, and Joseph Beuys, a survey retracing the history of a lively decade that submitted art to every sort of question seems a timely effort. Organized by capcMusée director Maurice Fréchuret, “The Seventies” delves in with an offering of more than 300 works grouped into five major themes: the body, matter, space, surface, and text; the cross-section bare a crucial moment in recent art history. An international colloquium is planned for early December, with historians and curators Yve-Alain Bois, Laura Cottingham, Catherine David, Hal Foster, Lorand Hegyi, Amelia Jones, and Catherine Millet.
