Superdome May 29 – August 24

Five solo exhibitions

The Superdome is a mythical stadium. Built in 1975 in New Orleans (Louisiana), it has hosted numerous Super Bowls (the American football championship’s final), a Rolling Stones concert, Pope John Paul II, the Republican Convention and refugees of Hurricane Katrina.
Paradoxical, the Superdome builds a bridge between the greatest entertainment and the greatest anguish. Inspired by its additional and schizophrenic logic, mixing ‘I can get no satisfaction’ AND ‘Our Father in heaven’, Marc-Olivier Wahler puts forward SUPERDOME: a new session composed of five solo exhibitions balancing between entertainment and desolation, decibels and prayers, high-tech and chaos, as the continuation of a program testing the notion of the elasticity of art which started at the Palais de Tokyo with Five Billion Years.

Superdome hosts activities that bump into one another, and lives that are in fragile equilibrium, outlining a potential geometry of chaos.
