Speech from Patrice Mugny, mayor of Geneva 5.30pm.

Exhibit is coproduced with MACBA in Barcelona.

The exhibition is accompanied by a publication, co-produced with MACBA Barcelona,including texts by Katya Garcia-Anton, Bartomeu Mari and Gregory Volk, amongst others.

This exhibition is a partnership with the Biennal of Moving Images, Geneva (Centre pour l'image contemporaine-Saint Gervais Genève) that presents a retrospective of Joan Jonas's works.

Thirty years after her first performance at the Centre, Joan Jonas presents four recent installations. An emblematic figure that came to the attention of the New York art scene in the late 1960s, she has influenced subsequent generations of artists worldwide. The exhibited works question identity and meld performance, installation and video, exploring the fields of mythology, rituals and story-telling.
