Edi Dubien

7 october 2020 - 3 January 2021

L’homme aux mille natures

In September, the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Lyon hosts Edi Dubien for his first solo museum exhibition.

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.

During the first semester of 2020, the macLYON will implement changes to its fire safety system in order to comply with norms and will remodel its reception area. During renovations, the museum will be closed to the public but will continue to programme events and exhibitions in off-site locations.
