Anselm Kiefer. La photographie au commencement Le LaM
From October 06, 2023 to March 3, 2024 Known for his monumental paintings and installations, Anselm Kiefer was born in 1945, a few months before the end of the Second World War. His work, nourished by myth and literature, is marked by a constant questioning of history and the cyclical nature of life. With over 200 works, the exhibition focuses on an essential component of his work: photography. Glued into books, inserted into sculptures, immersed in paintings, photographs are part of the incessant struggle between the image and the reality of the world that permeates the whole of his work.

January 13 to March 9, 2024 Movement is time, and the artist is very sensitive to the cycles of life, water and nature. Even as a child, he was interested in insects, gemology and geology, and wanted to understand how they worked and where they fit in. What I make helps me to move forward on this path, which combines science and materials that retain the imprint of the organic and geological past,” confided Nicolas Tourte. In fact, his work questions our way of being in the world, of inhabiting it, of influencing it. What traces will we leave behind? Art is a possible answer, as it allows us to glimpse different worlds, each work being a world in itself. guided tour of the Nicolas Tourte exhibition on 08/02/2024 at 3 pm guided tour of the Nicolas Tourte exhibition on 09/02/2024 at 3pm guided tour of the Nicolas Tourte exhibition on 10/02/2024 at 3pm *Subject to the purchase of a Lille Art Up! ticket.
Built in 1856 and renovated in 2019 by the Philippe Prost architectural studio, the Cité des Électriciens is the oldest coron in the Pas-de-Calais region. While it bears witness to the evolution of working-class housing and the industrialization of the region, the Cité des Électriciens has also become a key venue for contemporary creation in the Hauts-de-France region. The spirit of the gardens and former miners’ cottages has become a true source of inspiration for artists, writers, film-makers, photographers and designers. From February 1, 2024, the Cité des Électriciens will be highlighting the vitality of the different ways in which the landscapes of the mining basin, now recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, have been viewed. Outsider artists Jean-Michel Wuilbeaux and Louis Van Baelens capture, not without humor, the vibrancy of the underground depths and the red of the brick. Clément Brugger’s experimental photographs, laser-engraved on wood, reveal the poetry of former mining infrastructures. From March 22, 2024, the Cité des Électriciens is part of the major retrospective dedicated to Ladislas Kijno (1921-2012) organized by the Communauté d’Agglomération de Béthune-Bruay, Artois Lys Romane and the Kijno Donation. With the exhibition “La peinture dans la peau”, the Cité des Électriciens invites visitors to contemplate the artist’s subtle crumpled paper technique. It’s an opportunity to pull out all the stops and appreciate the many ways in which the pleating of fiber is used in contemporary art. Whether through the presentation of Jacques Trovic’s solar embroideries of wool and fabrics, Isabelle Hin’s shimmering photographs of overalls, or the curtains by the About A Work design duo, committed to improving the hygrothermal comfort of mining houses. free guided tour Sunday February 11, 3pm *Subject to the purchase of a Lille Art Up! ticket.
