The digital culture that has invaded our viewing experience over the last decade has profoundly altered the way people view film. It has shifted the venue from cinemas to exhibition spaces and has given film a central role among the contemporary arts. Henceforth the film experience can no longer be conceptualized as an extension of photography that incorporates time and movement, but rather as a cluster of dematerialized properties which, once freed from cinema’s technical constraints, can be identified and activated within the various allegedly static arts. The juxtaposition of still and moving images, like the combination of light and darkness and / or sound and silence, thus become filmic experiences in themselves.

Based on the contemporary collection of the Musée national d’art moderne at the Pompidou Centre in Paris, this show adopts the new approach by combining static pictures with moving ones. Invoking not just film’s structural qualities but also its narrative excesses, the fifteen sections of this exhibition are orchestrated around fifteen themes that draw visitors into a cinematic experience of the show.
