A great first at MEMENTO

An exhibition that will experience the emergence of a micro-society made of free connections, social interactions and common values

MEMENTO was born from the desire to awaken through contemporary creation an old Carmel closed for 10 years. Property of the Departmental Council of Gers, this constantly evolving space wishes to create an artistic dynamic on a territorial, national and international level by associating with artists and cultural institutions of the current artistic scene.

Contemporary art space

This former Carmel was redeveloped in 1949 to accommodate the departmental archives then was closed awaiting a future. In 2016, it became MEMENTO, a true creative laboratory based on the very idea of ​​exhibition between a place not dedicated to art and works. These abandoned spaces today reveal a forgotten reality. They become, in contact with contemporary creation, a periphery of beliefs.

A place of research and experimentation

MEMENTO has become a place of research and exhibitions dedicated to dissemination, awareness, research, experimentation and support for contemporary creation. Productions of unpublished works,

FREE UNION was born from the desire to create a new field of exploration around the exhibition and the soul of the place to move towards a micro-society made of sharing and pleasure of art.

Karine Mathieu, artistic director of MEMENTO, invited two exhibition curators this year, Jean-François Sanz, independent author/artistic director and William Gourdin, responsible for exhibitions and actions in the region at Abattoirs Musée – Frac Occitanie Toulouse, for a generous and human adventure.

Drawing on the memory of MEMENTO, the beautiful community spirit of our junctions has taken over the character and personality of the exhibition spaces. Together, we brought all our beliefs into this attention to artists and works in the hope of nourishing the ferment of an artistic and human communion open to all.

This exhibition, presented in spaces as unusual as they are captivating, reveals this FREE UNION based on relational enrichment through the love of art. Here, the body, movement, perception and feelings come together to create a micro-society of the sensitive. » Karine Mathieu

The UNION LIBRE exhibition will open its doors to the public from June 8 to October 13, 2024 / Tuesday to Sunday / 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.
