MuCEM : I Love Panoramas

12 Les Grands Boulevards de Paris de la Madeleine a la Bastille 1820 Joachim Bonnemaison

This exhibition originated in an exchange between the two curators, Laurence Madeline and Jean-Roch Bouiller. It started with a text message, “I love panoramas” (a phrase spoken by Jean Dujardin in the French spy movie OSS 117) which crossed one of their phones like a flash of lightning. Familiar to artists, this flash of lightning is some little detail, an epiphany that engenders the work: in this case, an exhibition.
