Time for time

Paris, France, 2000

Re-opening exhibition
Listed on the official programme for French year 2000 celebrations, Time for time celebrates the re-opening of Beaubourg.
The exhibition reflects on time passing, coming to a stop, speeding up or taking its time, with a collection of 400 works of art chosen under the direction of Daniel Soutif, the Exhibition Commissioner, staged in a translucent scenography that accompanies and conceals the paintings, sculptures, photos, films and musical works like a delicate, enveloping mist. It punctuates the time that has passed since the Urban Archaeology exhibition, another exploration of time for the first inauguration ceremony in 1977 by Confino (and Co) who shared the design with Haus-Rucker inc. from New York.
