Younes Rahmoun: Here, Now — Smith College Museum of Art
30 August 2024 — 13 July 2025


Younes Rahmoun: Here, Now  is the first survey for multidisciplinary artist Younes Rahmoun. Born in 1975 in Tetouan, Morocco, where he continues to live and work, Rahmoun is a leading figure in contemporary art internationally as well as a dedicated mentor and teacher to subsequent generations of artists in Morocco.

The exhibition explores how Rahmoun’s artistic practice has, since the 1990s, created space for viewers to be in community, together in the here and now, through a focus on formal rigor, iterative processes, and social engagements. Foremost among the exhibition’s themes are nature, place, and landscape; spirituality; migration as a consequence of de/colonization; and art as a premise for coming together. The exhibition invests in multiple locations across Smith: SCMA’s galleries and atrium façade, the Botanic Garden of Smith College, the banks of Paradise Pond, and the MacLeish Field Station in Whately, MA. New site-specific commissions will be exhibited at these locations alongside a selection of major sculptures, drawings, videos, and installations that Rahmoun has made over the past twenty-five years.

Inspired by the artist’s commitment to working collaboratively and creating connections across multiple locations, two partner exhibitions—at La Kunsthalle Mulhouse and Kulte: Center for Contemporary Art & Editions—will open in Mulhouse, France, and Rabat, Morocco, respectively, in 2024.

22nd Biennial Secs Videobrasil
18 October 2023 — 28 April 2024


Entitled “Memory is an Editing Station”—a phrase taken from a poem by Waly Salomão (1943–2003)—Biennial Sesc_Videobrasil reaches its 22nd edition in 2023, after being postponed for almost two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Curated by Raphael Fonseca, from Brazil, and Renée Akitelek Mboya, from Kenya, the Biennial also celebrates the fortieth anniversary of Videobrasil, initially devoted to video, and which has expanded over the decades to encompass a broad range of artistic languages.

In this celebration, “it is, therefore, necessary not only to reflect on time and the many conceptions of memory, but also to revisit the importance of video in these four decades,” write the curators. It is also worth remembering that in contemporaneity the possibilities for image editing were transformed, and have become more agile and within reach of our fingers in a range of technological devices we use every day.

Far beyond these particular “editing stations,” the 22nd Biennial seeks works that address collective memories, acts of remembrance and forgetfulness that build historical and social narratives, related to peoples, nations and geographies. “What are the ethical boundaries of a cut? Who holds the power to do so? How to forge the memory of what we didn’t see or feel in our bodies? What are the limits of memory?”, the curators ask.
