Lemaniana: Reflections on Other Scenes is the catalogue of a collective exhibition at the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève celebrating the diversity of the contemporary artistic production in the Léman region.
The exhibition is the result of a call for projects, launched in autumn 2020, based on an open conception of the territory, with the aim of bringing together artists of different background who are either temporarily or permanently linked to the cross-border region of the Lake Léman basin, irrespective of training or education.
Rich in illustrations and texts, the catalogue allows us to navigate through the universe of nearly 60 artists, including artist duo and collectives, bringing to light new connections and opening our gaze to fresh interpretations of the world – a world deeply shaken by recent events. Current news – whether we are talking about racism, divergent political powers, gender identity or the pandemic and its confinements – give the project a truly contemporary nature.

Edited by Andrea Bellini.
With essays by Mohamed Almusibli, Andrea Bellini, Roxane Bovet, Patrick de Rham, Jill Gasparina and Stéphanie Moisdon.

Frog 13

MIKE KELLEY’s shows at The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and The Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris are discussed in this issue by JILL GASPARINA and NOELLIE ROUSSEL —both admiring KELLEY’s œuvre and sharing a rather critical point of view on the Paris venue. Not much more positive is the opinion of JONATHAN CHAUVEAU on French philosopher BERNARD-HENRI LEVY’s show “Les aventures de la vérité” at the Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, but admiration is back with MARIE DE BRUGEROLLE’s essay on ANDREA FRASER and her show in Cologne. PIERRE HUYGHE’s Pompidou Centre exhibition also leans Frog Editor in Chief ERIC TRONCY to express —one more time— his deep admiration for the very demanding relationship the French artist has with his own work.

In a rather long interview, German Art Dealer and Collector MICHAEL WERNER tells FABIAN STECH everything he has to say about the art world, collecting and selling art — and the meaning of a donation, after he decided to give 127 paintings and sculptures to the Musee d’Art Moderne de la ville de Paris.

The 55th Venice Biennial is also discussed in this issue by ELISABETH LEBOVICI, BERNARD MARCADE, NICOLAS TREMBLEY, STEPHANIE MOISDON and ERIC TRONCY, and to say they did not like what they see is an understatement. But the quite intrepid remake of legendary exhibition “Live in Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form (Works — Concepts — Processes — Situations — Information)” at the Prada Foundation in Venice by starchitect REM KOOLHAAS ravishes everyone.

Talking about architecture, ANTOINE ESPINASSEAU interviewed Japanese architect HIDEYUKI NAKAYAMA, and photographed SOU FOUJIMOTO’s pavilion for the Serpentine Gallery in London. Fashion Photographer PIERRE EVEN went to Le Roc, in the South of France, and photographed the extraordinary house built there by French architect FREDERIC MARTINET. He and EDOUARD ROPAS both wrote on legendary Haus III built by OSWALD MATHIAS UNGERS in Cologne, photographed for Frog by PHILIPPE JARRIGEON.
