Harun Farocki (Group Show) : A REPUBLIC OF ART french regional collections of contemporary art. Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, The Netherlands. 27.06.15 > 04.10.15
Curators: Annie Fletcher, Diana Fransen
A Republic of Art is an exhibition about the world of visual art in the French Republic from the establishment of the FRAC system in 1982 right up to current developments in contemporary art today. These 23 FRACs were to span the entire country. Each was empowered to fund, collect and exhibit contemporary living artists from France and beyond, thus providing the whole country with a uniquely ambitious and robust support system for the production of visual art in its own time.
The large-scale exhibition tells the story of art and the ambitious plans of the French state in collecting, organising and dispersing contemporary art in radically new ways.
