Sammy Baloji, Mohssin Harraki and Younès Rahmoun are taking part in the exhibition Global(e) Resistance, pour une histoire engagée de la collection contemporaine, de Jonathas de Andrade à Billie Zangewa, cur. by Christine Macel, Alicia Knock and Yung Ma.
The exhibition Global(e) Resistance unveils for the first time the works of more than sixty artists gathered over the last decade, the majority of whom come from the Global South (Africa, Middle East, Asia, Latin America) and aims to examine contemporary strategies of resistance.
Global(e) Resistance also poses theoretical questions that range from the articulation of aesthetics and politics to the very relationship between the museum and politics within the art world.

Mohssin Harraki is taking part in the collective exhibition Infinie Liberté, a contemporary art exhibition and the heart of the Resurgence project set up by the Causses and Dordogne Valley community of municipalities.
The 2020 edition is entitled Infinie Liberté. It will honour the avant-garde figure of Nancy Cunard and her struggles. The selection of around forty works focuses on committed artists, dealing with human rights and social inequalities. Infinie Liberté is made up of works on loan from the Frac Nouvelle-Aquitaine MÉCA, which this year is signing a partnership as part of its Vivantes! exhibition sequence, a programme devoted to the place of women in art and its history.
