An exhibition as a "clin d'oeil" to an artist that cannot be ignored, and who has been chosen to represent France at the next Venice Biennale, who always gives us meaningful and unique experiences.
An exhibition imagined by agnès b.
Christian Boltanski's title is in reference to the painting "Bonjour Monsieur Courbet!" by Gustave Courbet, that we also call "La Rencontre" (The Meeting).
Eleven artists that he has formally and intellectually inspired pay homage to him.
The title gives us clues on the nature of the exhibition, each piece of art will be like a postcard sent to him.
"The Meeting" also refers to the one between agnès b. and Christian Boltanski. Accomplices in a common vocabulary. Sharing, circulation, dispersion...
Complicity, along with Hans Ulrich Obrist, gave birth to the Point d'Ironie, of which Boltanski has designed two different issues. This publication will naturally find a place in this exhibition.
