Cogan Exhibits Work at Musée d'art moderne Le Havre in France

Art X Instructor Chris Cogan will be included in a group exhibition at the Musée d'art moderne André Malraux in Le Havre, France starting in February 2018. The show is a collection of 16mm film works curated by Light Cone, Paris. Cogan will exhibit his 16mm film “NO MOON”, which is an exploration of the many facets of delirium. The exhibition also features works by Sergei Eisenstein, Christian Boltanski, Anja Czioska, Martha Colburn, and Ben Russell.

The Musée d’art moderne André Malraux opened in 1845. It belongs to the second generation of museums established in France in the 19th century. In September 1944, the museum was destroyed by bombings. The sculpture collection, which remained at the museum throughout the war, was almost entirely lost. Only the paintings—some 1,500 works moved off-site for safekeeping during the war—survived. The museum is a home to art in all of its forms, giving the public access to collections built up over centuries and providing a generous offering of cultural activities like temporary exhibitions, lectures, and art libraries.

Christopher Cogan is a multi-media artist who lives and works in Athens, Georgia and is a part-time instructor in the ArtX area of the School of Art. His films and installations have been presented in numerous exhibitions internationally. He has worked extensively in the visual arts in Europe and America for over two decades.
