The revamped Casino is “the place to be for those who love contemporary creation in Luxembourg [and] has a new layout with smoother circulation, a new café-restaurant and has totally overhauled its exhibition design with the entire destruction of its white cubes system,” it said in a press release.
The gallery’s relaunch party, Tuesday evening, took place 20 years after its original debut, on 22 March 1996. This is being followed by a special “Open Week” exhibition called “Public collection”, by Alexandra Pirici and Manuel Pelmus, which is a look back at the past two decades of contemporary art in the Grand Duchy. (It will also be shown at Mudamin July).
In addition, the reopening is marked with the documentary “Cosmographia (île de Gorée)”, by David Brognon and Stéphanie Rollin, which will be screened in the BlackBox video space until Saturday 30 April.
A temporary showcase exhibition, “Gypsum”, by the Spanish artist Lara Almarcegui, evokes the capital’s geology and architecture. It runs through Sunday 4 September.
