Guided tour of the exhibition Face-à-Face with Marie-Noëlle Farcy and Vanessa Lecomte.

Face-à-Face proposes a new dialogue between two museum collections. It establishes connections between works by major figures of the modern avant-garde in Germany and France and those of contemporary artists from around the world.

The cross-border project Face-à-Face will be held simultaneously at Mudam Luxembourg and at the Saarlandmuseum in Saarbrucken. As a counterpoint to the dialogue between the modern and contemporary works of art from both collections that will unfold in Luxembourg, a large selection from the Mudam Collection will be shown in Germany. Works by Tania Bruguera, Günther Förg, Su-Mei Tse, Blinky Palermo, amongst others, will be interspersed throughout the permanent collections while large-scale multimedia works and installations by world-renowned artists such as Eija-Liisa Ahtila, David Altmejd, Martha Atienza, Mel Chin or Kara Walker will unfold in the large galleries of the Moderne Galerie to reflect the full diversity of contemporary art.
