thomas hirschhorn exhibits at centre pompidou metz

12 September 2011
Thomas Hirschhorn is part of the new multi-disciplinarary group show entitled "Wander, Labyrinthine Variations" at the Centre Pompidou in Metz, exhibiting his complete series of "Maps", for the first time.

Beyond its historical references, "Wander, Labyrinthine Variations" sets out to represent certain contemporary aesthetic, political and intellectual trends of our era. It addresses the history of forms and ideas by challenging a strictly linear model or progressive vision. Instead, it multiplies possibilities, draws the visitor into zones of confusion, multiple choices and lays obstacles to our apprehending of what is real, with all that this implies in terms of adventurous speculation and uncertainty.

Unfolding over 2,000 square meters across two of the gallery spaces at Centre Pompidou-Metz, the exhibition shows different generations of French and international artists, alongside major works from the Centre Pompidou, Musée National d'Art Moderne in Paris and important international collections.
