MAC VAL, Vitry-sur-Seine
For the first major rendez-vous in its tenth anniversary programme, the
MAC VAL – Musée d’art contemporain du Val-de-Marne is holding a multi-disciplinary themed exhibition. What defines masculinity these days? And how can we come up with alternatives to the figure of the dominant male in patriarchal society? To answer these questions, the curator Frank Lamy is inviting more than a hundred male artists, offering as many avenues of reflection around cultural models of masculine representations… plenty to topple certain preconceived ideas, which are as tenacious as they are fragile. Self-acceptance and acceptance of others.
