My 2000-Year-Old Double Until May 12th 2019.

The theme of look-alikes and portraits launches a story that combines the history of antiquity with the distractions of today. Twenty-five to thirty photographs of contemporary faces will be matched with works from the Greco-Roman and Egyptian collections of the Musée d’art et d’histoire in Geneva and the Fondation Gandur pour l’Art. Ranging from intimate to monumental, contemporary black and white photographs and ancient works will create an unusual journey through time and space.

Disappeared Or Forgotten: Akonessen, Zita, Tina, Marie Ad The Others. From May 24th 2018 To February 17th 2019

Nine works by aboriginal artists and craftswomen generate strong emotions in the face of the painful destinies of numerous aboriginal women and girls. The image of the native woman invented during colonization has clung to the collective mind as all clichés born of ignorance do. Free women, loving women, enveloping millennia of culture in their warmth & care, all the while being perceived as simply docile and without faith or morals; they have been disembodied.
