"4.543 billion. The matter of matter", CAPC musée d'art contemporain de Bordeaux, 29 June 2017–7 January 2018.

“4.543 billion. The matter of matter” is a group exhibition that addresses works of art, collections and cultural histories in relation to ecological processes and a geological scale of time. It springs from the CAPC building’s former life as a warehouse for colonial commodities whose limestone walls were once deep in the ground and whose wooden beams were once part of a forest. Curated by Latitudes

  1. 161 words of happiness! Christmas arrived earlier to #LatitudesBarcelona's inbox 🌲(full article link in bio) 💥Huge thanks #TomJeffreys for the kind words in @frieze_magazine magazine about "#4543billion" exhibition @capcmusee d'art contemporain de Bordeaux- we're honoured and energised⚡️! "A little less academic, but no less rigorous, was '4,543 milliards' (4,543 billion), curated by the Barcelona-based Latitudes (co-founded by frieze contributing editor Max Andrews) at CAPC, Bordeaux. Subtitled 'The matter of matter', the exhibition provided a material, geological and political response to the building's former life as a warehouse for colonial commodities and, by extension, the complex entanglement of culture, money, politics and ecological impact. Marble from Trump Tower (Amie Siegel's Strata, 2017) was exhibited alongside partially-burnt documents rescued from fire at the Bordeaux municipal archives and a 1939 mock invitation to the 'Museum of Standard Oil', actually MoMA's new building, issued by then-publications director, Frances Collins (unsurprisingly fired soon after). Combining archival materials with work by 30 artists, big ideas with specificity and nuance, this was exactly the kind of exhibition I would want to return to again and again. If selection of the next artistic director the Venice Biennale were a democratic process, I'd be voting for Latitudes." 🥂 Thanks extended to the +30 amazing artists, lenders and archives, and the CAPC team for this accolade 👏🏻 👉On view until January 7, 2018. 👈 #4543billion #4543milliards #capcmusee @paysagesbx17 #GeologicTime #curatedbylatitudes #latitudesbarcelona
