Island Time

17 Juli 2019 00:00 - 11 November 2019 00:00

We are all inhabited by islands. Everyone keeps within their mind memories, plans and dreams about islands. Novels, films, atlases, etc., all confer on them an unparalleled evocative force, even when they are said to be imaginary.

More than something that is marginal or exceptional, Island time considers the island as an experience and a tool for understanding the world. The exhibition explores the effects of islands on the imaginary, knowledge, geopolitical reality, and the utopias of yesterday and tomorrow. Maps, explorers’ surveys, stuffed animals, and also Roman mosaics, paintings, sculptures, photographs, videos, installations – Island time presented at the Mucem showcases some 200 pieces from French, European and Mediterranean institutions, as well as contemporary works of art created specially for this project.
