Jimmie Durham - Pierres rejetées...
Musée D'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, Paris
30 January 2009 - 12 April 2009
This exhibition was a retrospective of Jimmie Durham's (European) work after 1994.
The title was taken from the expression "stone rejected by the builder" from Psalm 118-22 in the Bible. It was chosen by Durham because it makes explicit a hierarchical system in which the architect is the one entitled to construct or destroy the city, determining in this way the life of its citizens.
