Ali Cherri participates in the collective exhibition Comme un parfum d’aventure at macLYON, cur. by Marilou Laneuville and Matthieu Lelièvre.
“”With a Hint of Adventure” is an exhibition directly inspired by the recent collective, worldwide experience of confinement, which was imposed more or less simultaneously for health reasons on the majority of people on the planet. Its main thrust is an exploration of the question of travel, whether impeded or imposed, voluntary or provoked, individually or in a group, and the consequences of it for those affected. It takes the form of an investigation across history, drawing on the collections of the Lyon Musée des Beaux-Arts and the Musée d’Art Contemporain (macLYON)”
