7 March 2015
Lucas Samaras and Yinka Shonibare MBE have work included in the group exhibition 'Chercher le garçon', meaning Find the Boy, which opens at the Musée d'Art Contemporain du Val-de-Marne in Vitry-sur-Seine, France.

The exhibition is the first major part of the MAC/VAL 10th anniversary exhibition programme. 'Chercher le garçon' is a multidisciplinary exhibition which focuses on contemporary ideas and definitions of masculinity. To answer these questions the curator Frank Lamy has selected over a hundred male artists who deal with representations of gender and the male self in their work.

The exhibition will include work from Yinka Shonibare's renowned photographic series ‘Diary of a Victorian Dandy' 1998.

'Chercher le garçon' runs from 7 March until 30 August 2015.
