Edi Dubien

29 April - 16 August 2020

Orangerie du Parc de la Tête d'Or



hors les murs


In spring 2020, the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Lyon hosts Edi Dubien for his first solo museum exhibition. Produced by the macLYON, the exhibition will take place in an off-site location: the Orangerie du Parc de la Tête d’Or.

This self-taught artist has been making a name for himself over the past number of years with his accomplished drawings of an impressive psychological depth: in particular, his representations of taciturn children and teenagers. Their gaze is absent, elusive, at times direct, but always imbued with emotion and humanity.

Often accompanied by animals, translated into sculptures for this exhibition, conceived as a garden, these young fi gures subtly embody some of the fundamental questions connected to the construction of one’s identity and the freedom of self-expression. Particularly in today’s world, both public and private, where violence, whether physical or mental, has been normalized or rendered banal.
