Nuit Blanche 2018

Bourse de Commerce

Curated by

Caroline Bourgeois selected works that reflected the theme of Nuit Blanche 2018: movement. Bertille Bak created Fantôme des Halles (“Ghost of Les Halles”) specifically for the event. In the Nelson Mandela Garden, she recreated a travelling market reviving the memory of the place that was once the "belly of Paris". Thirteen pop-up stands sold absurd trinkets bearing the effigy of the Bourse du Commerce as it appeared in the background hidden under a huge tarp. Meanwhile, video installations from the Pinault Collection—The Magic of Things (2010) by British artist Mark Wallinger and Büsi (2001) and Hunde (2003) by the Swiss artist duo Peter Fischli & David Weiss—were shown on the ground floor of the Agora, a historic EMMAÜS Solidarité day centre.

For the second year, the Bourse de Commerce/Pinault Collection - Paris participated in Nuit Blanche, a major event for the promotion of contemporary art, showcasing its new Parisian exhibition venue, which was still under construction.
