The Guerry Columns by Georges Jeanclos

Until January 31st 2021

The Guerry Columns, a major work Georges Jeanclos (1933-1997), joined recently the mahJ’s collections thanks to an exceptional donation by the artist’s family of a full-scale terracotta study of the bronze monument erected in the hamlet of Guerry at Savigny-en-Septaine in the Cher. A poignant evocation of one of the crimes of the Shoah perpetrated on the French territory, this work constitutes a major enrichment of the mahJ’s contemporary collection.

Moshe Ninio Lapse Prix Maratier 2015

daily, starting from Wednesday, September 28, 2016 - 11:00, until Sunday, January 29, 2017 - 23:59

The mahJ is showing two cycles of recent works: Glass(es) (2010–11), Morgen (2010–2015) and its extension, Decor: morgen appendix (2015–16). Moshe Ninio’s “forensic” exploration of existing images transform historic relics—an object on display in a museum and a TV show filmed in the early 1960s—into disturbing abstractions.
