October 7 – December 23
Curating: Datas on view
Group show, La Terrasse, Centre d’art de Nanterre. Curators: Sandrine Moreau and Thierry Fournier.


Works by Martin John Callanan, Marie-Pierre Duquoc, Hasan Elahi, Öyvind Fahlstrom, Ashley Hunt, Mark Lombardi, Philippe Mairesse, Claire Malrieux, Julien Prévieux, Ward Shelley, Ali Tnani et Lukas Truniger. Publications and editions by James Bridle, Bureau d’études, Eli Commins, Albertine Meunier, On Kawara, Jacopo da Pontormo et Erica Scourti. Performance by Magali Desbazeille. La Terrasse window: work in situ by Thierry Fournier.

The exhibition Data on view brings together a selection of works that offer interpretations of public or personal data through drawing or code: graphs, drawings, network installations, sculptures, publications… These works are addressing various stakes, sensitive and poetic but also critical or political. They question in particular what we expect from data, and how these expectations are likely to define our vision of the world. In this way, the exhibition offers a historical perspective, ranging from Öyvind Fahlström or Mark Lombardi to young international artists, some of whose works are being shown here for the first time in France. It is supplemented by film and web site documentations, which deals with the issues of empowerment and the appropriation of data by citizens.
