Marc Jancou Contemporary is pleased to announce the exhibition Rive Gauche / Rive Droite, a group show organized by Marc Jancou in six unique locations around Paris. Rive Gauche / Rive Droite leads the viewer on a walk through Paris, allowing them to discover the works in the exhibition at their own pace. The show was inspired in part by Chambres d'amis (1986) at the Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst, Gent, in which artworks were displayed in local residents' homes within the city. Another inspiration for the show was The Meat Wagon (2005) at The Menil Collection, Texas in which works by Robert Gober were set in dialogue with objects from the permanent collection in unconventional locations throughout the museum, creating a series of unexpected encounters.
