Exhibition « Afghanistan, Tisser l’horizon à l’infini » at Chapelle du Méjan, Arles

from October 13th 2023 to January 7th 2024

An unseen look between Afghan and French contemporary artists, between new works and traces of the past, to weave the Afghan history and preserve its breath.

This exhibition is born from the encounter, in 2023, of personalities of Arles, passionate by the art of textile and Afghan culture, with Zolaykha Sherzad who was about to close an exhibition at Guimet – National Asian Arts Museum. A sensible dialogue between the life of bodies, dressed with textile, and the art of weaving in the history of Afghanistan.

Barmak Akram, Pascal Convert, Latif Eshraq, Ferrante Ferranti, Morteza Herati, Zahra Khodadadi, Zolaykha Sherzad, Mohsin Taasha, Naseer Turkmani
and the witnesses of history: Ria Hackin et Marc Riboud

Free entrance from Wednesday to Friday from 2pm to 7pm; Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 7pm.

Retrospective “Marc Riboud, Histoire possibles” at the National Asian Arts Museum – Guimet

from May 19th to September 6th 2021

The exhibition dedicated to Marc Riboud celebrates the legacy of his archive to the national collections, more precisely to Guimet Museum which he loved so much.

A photographer more than a reporter, Marc Riboud left thousands of photographs (negatives, color slides, prints), many of them taken in Asia. Who, among us, cannot help but identify to this or that photograph, always familiar, and get the feeling to flip, through this album of the world, into his own family album?

From the immediate after-war to the timeless Huang Shan Chinese mountains, this exhibitions invites to a journey of more than 50 years on every continent’s roads, with a favoured focus on Asia.
