Collection presentation

Hier, Aujourd’hui, Demain presents works from Mudam’s collection across three floors of the museum. The display features large scale video installations alongside a selection of paintings and sculptures that highlights the museum’s singular architectural context. Conceived in a moment of dramatic change and widespread uncertainty, the presentation takes its title from a work in the collection, Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow, by Peter Halley (b. 1953, New York) which is part of the display in the East Gallery on Level 1. Halley’s painting from 1987 was acquired for the collection in 1998, eight years prior to the opening of the museum. Shifting back and forth between past and present, Hier, Aujourd’hui, Demain demonstrates how artworks and collections can anchor historical narratives whilst remaining open to and renewed by continued reinterpretation and re-evaluation according to the times in which they are shown.
