The Global(e) Resistance exhibition running at Centre Pompidou displays over sixty artists from Africa, Middle East, Asia, and Latin America for a dive into resistance: resistance against racism, resistance against sexism, resistance against capitalism, despotism. This committed exhibition runs from July 29, 2020 to January 4, 2021.

Centre Pompidou gives the floor to committed artists from southern countries in a great exhibition called Global(e) Resistance, a wonderful display highlighting works purchased by the museum over the past decade. The exhibition tells us about life choices – even though different – leading to the same will of fighting against injustices.

In the museum’s graphic art gallery, the visit is paced with slogans printed on the walls based on works by Barthelemy Toguo. The project highlights political contestations during decolonizations and the collapse of communist ideologies after 1989. It then moves on the fight against gender inequalities and gender issues.

Manifesto works open the exhibition: the Redemption statue by Barthelemy Toguo, followed by works by Guy Ben Ner and Khalil Rabah inspired by the Israel-Palestinian conflict, Teresa Margolles’ echoing the Mexican border. Artist Yin Xiuzhen tells about the armed conflicts, and Nadia Kaabi-Linke about the wanderings of migrants and homeless people. All in all, about sixty artists are exhibited.

More than a simple exhibition, Centre Pompidou displays a manifesto. A lounge and four documentary display cases expect us at the entrance on level 4. They also show the commitment of some activism “places” based in France.

In addition to the exhibit, the ticket gives you a way to the Christo and Jeanne Claude (until October 19, 2020), Prix Marcel Duchamp 2020 (October 7, 2020 to January 4, 2021), Martin Barré (October 14, 2020 to January 4, 2021) and Matisse (October 21, 2020 to February 22, 2021) exhibitions.
