What would an exhibition be like if we changed the environment from the gallery, museum, or Kunsthalle, to that of the cinema? (a project by Mathieu Copeland).
The book, The Exhibition of a Film, follows an eponymous exhibition that includes the work by forty-six international artists, and begun with a question: What would an exhibition be like if we changed the environment from the gallery, museum, or Kunsthalle, to that of the cinema? “The Exhibition of a Film”, an exhibition for a context, namely a film screened in a cinema and constrained by the properties particular to that social environment, is, at one and the same time, a film exhibited, a film of an exhibition and a filmed exhibition.
Expanding on the issues raised through the exhibition, the books is articulated through a series of interviews, commissioned text and reprints that examine the relationship between the exhibition and film: their temporalities, their space, their mode of production.
