A set of photographs and videos from the Neuflize OBC Corporate Collection will be presented at La Belle Friche in May, as part of the Printemps de l’art contemporain, which will be held in Marseille from May 10 to June 16, 2019.
Extracted from a collection of more than 900 works, this exhibition entitled “Only You” proposes to revisit a classic but still current theme, that of amorous gestures under the gaze of the eye. “Only You” sounds like a memory, a regret, a still active charm: what would love desire be without the image of the other?
“The Neuflize OBC Corporate Collection comprises more than 900 works acquired over the past two decades. The selection, which I invite you to discover – or to rediscover – on the occasion of this exhibition, translates an unwavering desire for dialogue and transmission: memory, knowledge, the gaze of the other, a look at the other, openness to the diversity of beings and paths … It is, in short, to echo the exercise of our job as a banker, in which we place, as through our policy of patronage, the man and his become at the heart of our concerns. “, Says Laurent Garret, CEO of Neuflize OBC.
“This exhibition is, for me, the symbol of our affection for Marseille, where we have been present since 2004, close ties that we have woven with the economic, social and cultural ecosystem of the region, and more broadly of our historical location on the national territory. ” adds Emmanuel Delouche, Director of the Neuflize OBC Heritage Management Center in Marseille.
The curators of the “Only You” exhibition are: Ute Kohlmann, Michel Poivert and Caroline Stein, members of the acquisition committee of the Neuflize OBC Corporate Collection.
