After visiting the Antarctic Circle last year, Parisian hometown-boy-made-good Pierre Huyghe explores a terra incognita closer at hand: the “virgin” territory of the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris’s newly refurbished exhibition space. To celebrate its reopening after a two-year renovation, the museum presents five projects from Huyghe, whose last significant outing there was a 1998 group exhibition with Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and Philippe Parreno. The Antarctic voyage, along with its orchestral pendant filmed last fall in New York’s Central Park, provides the basis for ambitious new installations, which are presented alongside a film of the Le Corbusier–inspired puppet musical commissioned by Harvard’s Fogg Art Museum in 2004.
