Carlos Aires at BPS22 (15/07/2023)
The exhibition Stayin’ Alive expressed a dynamic and vibrant picture of the BPS22 collections, reflecting society’s most recent soul-searching. Its title, Stayin’ Alive, taken from the Bee Gees well-known hit, referred to the disco where Saturday night fever only serves to put aside dismay and disenchantment for a while. Thus behind their poetic, dreamlike, humorous or magical aspects, the artworks always address the distinguishing challenges of our time: migration, new spiritualities, identity issues (particularly around gender), cross-fertilisation, economic neglect, environmental crisis, and so on. The exhibition, curated by Pierre-Olivier Rollin, was on view between February 18 and April 23, 2023.
