Tania Mouraud in exhibition on conceptual art at MAMC+

19 May 2018

Fifty years after the protests of May 1968 in France, the exhibition Art conceptuel (Considérer le monde #2) at Musée d’art moderne et contemporain de Saint-Étienne Métropole/MAMC+ revisits a period of radical transformation in art, not just in society.

Tania Mouraud is one of the 30 international artists included in the show with works from the museum collection. Her NI series, from the late 1970s, consisting of giant letters plastered on 54 billboards across Paris, is now considered a seminal work of urban art which upended conventions regarding the production and distribution of art.

Thematically, the exhibition (19 May – 16 September 2018) revolves around four key interests of conceptual art: language, serialism, identity and programme.
