MONDES INVENTÉS, MONDES HABITÉS
FOUND IN TRANSLATION
Invented Worlds, Inhabited Worlds showcases the works of artists who are in turn thinkers, engineers and architects. The likes of Conrad Shawcross, Miguel Palma and Chris Burden investigate the forces and dynamics at work in our universe and through their works tackle questions of a scientific and metaphysical nature. Despite the intellectual profundity, many of the works on show here are quite playful. October 8 to January 15, 2012, Mudam, Luxembourg-Kirchberg, www.mudam.lu
Four exhibitions to see
VISUAL ARTS NIGHT OF THE MUSEUMS
Casino Luxembourg has commissioned Emmanuel Lambion, an independent Belgian curator, to organise an exhibition titled Found in Translation. He has invited a number of internationally renowned artists to use metaphor, quotations, everyday signs and sensory impulses to explore new ﬁelds of aesthetics and art.
From October 1 to January 15, 2012, Casino Luxembourg--Forum d’art contemporain, Luxembourg-city centre, www.casino-luxembourg.lu
Since the concept was launched in Berlin in 1997, the Night of the Museums has been exported to some 120 cities throughout Europe and beyond. Luxembourg celebrates its 11th edition of the annual event with a programme of activities organised by the d’staater muséeën group, which comprises seven museums in the capital city--Mudam, Casino, natural history museum, city history museum, national art and history museum, fortress museum and the Villa Vauban. Entertainment, workshops, food and drink and meetings with artists are all part of the event, with free entrance to the museums between 6 p.m. and midnight. Free shuttle buses will operate between the museums.
ALINE BOUVY & JOHN GILLIS
LIGHT AND DARK
The Bouvy and Gillis duo has taken over the gallery with two series of works that are somewhere between painting, sculpture and installation art and veer between light and dark, both in terms of the artists’ technical and iconographic approach and the meaning of the works themselves. October 8, seven museums in Luxembourg City, www.nuit-des-musees.lu
Until November 5, Galerie Nosbaum & Reding art contemporain, Luxembourgold city, www.nosbaumreding.lu
