Le supermarché des images

Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume, Paris, France

Art and economics have maintained complex and decisive relationships since ancient times. But the challenge we have been facing for more than a century is much broader than that of the art market alone: the commodification of the visible in general is at stake.

The photographs, drawings, paintings, videos, films, digital works and multimedia installations chosen for this exhibition explore the raw materials that make up the images, the immense stocks or banks in which they accumulate, the human (or non-human) work that contributes to their creation and the fluctuation of their values during their globalized circulation.

The exhibition offers critical points of view and unexpected perspectives on the fabric of this great market of images that structures our view.
