La Casa - 10 years of the award Carré Sur Seine

La Casa is a shelter, a state of mind, the sentinel of our creations, and finally the title of an exhibition, dreamed, then imagined, finally realized: the exhibition-celebration of the winners of the 10 years of the Prize Carré sur Seine gathered under the same roof.

Chiara Parisi, president of the Jury Carré sur Seine 2022 and director of the Centre Pompidou-Metz, invited the 16 artists of the prize to propose a reading of their vision of things by a choice of works organized from the presentation of a physical as well as mental baggage.

The richness of perspectives, the mix of artistic visions and cultures of the Prize winners Carré sur Seine intends to dialogue with the place that hosts the exhibition: POUSH. A breathtaking exhibition space, POUSH invites itself to be lived as a global artistic and cultural experience and conveys an idea of La Casa as a place that tells, in each of the expressions and projects presented, the story of those who inhabit it.

A roof, four walls, a door, windows... and suitcases.

Carré sur Seine thanks its partners for their support toassociation : the City of Boulogne-Billancourt, the Interconstruction Endowment Fund, the Emerige Endowment Fund, the Compagnie des bateaux à roues and the ICART (School of Cultural Mediation and Art Market)
