The Artist’s Museum begins with an impulse to collect and connect, bringing together large-scale installations, photography, film, and videos that employ artworks from the past as material in the present, animating existing artworks, images, and histories to reveal art’s unexpected relationships and affinities. Each of the artists in The Artist’s Museum reimagines the lives of artworks and charts recurring forms and themes across cultures and history. They tweak the language of museum display and organization to engage a variety of disciplines and subjects, from dance, music, and design to gender, sexuality, and technology.

Pierre Leguillon accompanies a collection of artworks and photographs of dancers with a lightshow and soundtrack by Amy Winehouse in La Grande Evasion (The great escape), 2012.

Pierre Leguillon, born in Nogent-sur-Marne, France, in 1969, is an artist who has developed projects as a curator and critic since the beginning of the 1990s. His works, performances, and projections have been the subject of many monographic presentations, notably at Raven Row (London, 2011), Mamco (Geneva, Switzerland, 2010), Moderna Museet (Malmö, Sweden, 2010), the Musée du Louvre (Paris, 2009), and Artists Space (New York, 2009).
