September 17, 2022 to April 23, 2023
2022 is symbolic in many ways for culture in the Dunkirk Urban Community. This date marks the anniversaries of four major structures of the dunkirk: the Frac Grand Large (40 years), the LAAC (40 years), the Musée du Dessin et de l'Estampe Originale in Gravelines (40 years) and the Dunkirk Port Museum (30 years).
The exhibition «Horizon(s)» shows an unprecedented cross-section of works from these four collections. The pieces presented, remarkable for their variety in terms of technique or period, together form a network that echoes the specificity of a territory at the crossroads and maritime routes. “Horizon(s)” will also be the occasion for specific programming aimed at audiences. Each structure will conduct original tours of the exhibition in order to propose multiple points of view on a horizon that brings us together.
With the works of: Charley Case, Hans Haacke, Paul Hemery, Helen Mirra, Ria Pacquée, Erez Nevi Pana, UZÈS, Capucine Vever
