La première nuit du monde

26 November 2015 – 27 March 2016

 

La première nuit du monde is the Franco-Swiss artist’s first exhibition in France since 2009. Held at the Strasbourg Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MAMCS), it brings together Valérie Favre’s most recent paintings and an impressive collection of over 200 drawings inspired by a reading of Maurice Blanchot’s novel Thomas the Obscure.

Covering an area of some 600 m2, this exhibition by an artist whose work has rarely been seen in France introduces her recent work, mingling reverie and deep reflection.
