--------------------------------------------------------- TRAVERSÉES AT ARC / MUSÉE D'ART MODERNE DE LA VILLE DE PARIS 25 October 2001 - 6 January 2002 The exhibition Traversées (Crossings) features a new vital area in the French art scene. Traversées is rooted in an observation that artists are increasingly connecting with other disciplines. Each participant in the exhibition was invited to work with one or several practitioners from other creative or experimental fields, with whom they feel a real affinity. The collaborators' simultaneous reactions to different contexts have generated innovative interactions whose freely chosen form may be that of a joint work, a talk, a debate, a text, etc. In the same spirit, and in resonance with the different disciplines, the Salle Dufy will house five "exhibitions in the exhibition" - five autonomous zones entrusted to independent curators and offering a choice of works in video, literature, music and web design (an exhibition can hide another exhibition). The open form of Traversées questions the principles and functions of a contemporary art exhibition. At the same time it is a response to an urgently felt need to make manifest the interconnections that arise from the desire to "experiment" with the most diverse models, and thus to assert the differences of approach that exist in relation to the instability of knowledge. Far from being encased in the certitudes of a finished project, this is an open-ended event that leaves room for the unpredictable, for possibilities of exchange and encounter. It is experienced as a complex and dynamic system of learning, a process and a laboratory. Hence it is almost organic in character, with germination and sedimentation, rooted in life itself. Conceived as a kind of manual, the catalogue aims to elucidate its multiple crossings and connections.
