Institut d’Art Contemporain, Villeurbanne
26 January - 18 March 2007

Over the last fifteen years, François Curlet has participated in numerous exhibitions in France and elsewhere, both individual (Galerie Micheline Szwajcer, 2004; Air de Paris, 2003; Centre d'Art Contemporain, Sète, 2000; Le Collège, FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, 1997) and collective (Palais de Tokyo, Paris; MUDAM, Luxembourg; Grand Palais, Paris, 2006; MUHKA, Antwerpen, 2005). The exhibition at the Institut d'Art Contemporain, bringing together fifty-four works created between 1989 and 2006, will give an overview of his approach in the form of a rebus in three dimensions. At this important juncture in his career, encouraged by the IAC, François Curlet is inviting two radical artists, Jens Haaning and Christophe Terlinden, to occupy different spaces, thus extending his "off-centre" art into the exhibition venue.
