The What’s Up Doc? group exhibition at Paris’ New Galerie opened October 19 and ran to December 16, 2017.
Curated by Pierre-Alexandre Mateos and Charles Teyssou, the show included work by Darja Bajagić, Hans Bellmer, Dora Budor, Claude Cahun, Max Ernst, Cédric Fargues, Adam Gordon, Meret Oppenheim, Mark Prent, Sean Raspet, Michael Salerno, Aguirre Schwarz, Li Shurui, Peter Sotos, Jasper Spicero and Artie Vierkant.
The exhibition brings together artists across generations and geographies responding to “simple questions with convoluted hypotheses, watered-down actions [and] post-oedipal associations.” The internals of mind and body are re-structured and brought to the surface from behind the fog or ‘thick layer of grease’ and held in a cradle of voyeurism.**
