Conversations, dedications and other scores

Anniversary - Exhibition


The CAPC is inviting Didier Arnaudet, a faithful observer and travelling companion of the CAPC from its earliest days, to devise an anniversary exhibition. Initially involved with poetry, and editor of such magazines as A haute voix and Zone, in 1973 he met the CAPC’s founder, Jean-Louis Froment, who raised his awareness of contemporary art. A few months later, he started writing for the magazine Artpress, and duly became its correspondent in Bordeaux. Part of his critic’s memory is closely bound up with the CAPC’s history. This keen, precise and restrained memory has been amply used to set up the exhibition.

Written like a score in which the works of Robert Combas, Daniel Buren and Nan Goldin rub shoulders with selected excerpts from Philippe Sollers, Georges Didi-Huberman, Jacques Derrida and Dominique Fourcade, La Sentinelle is a puzzle-exhibition in which words and images question the museum, along with its imaginary perspectives, because they are intrinsically connected.


Didier Arnaudet lives and works in Bordeaux.
