With the exhibition Silsila, le voyage des regards, the Institute of Islamic Cultures in the 18th arrondissement of Paris offers a questioning of transmission and representation in the works of artists residing in France whose path - or their relatives' - is linked to migration.
The exhibition takes its name from the Arabic word Silsila which means chain, referring to the links that unite people and events. The artists mix and weave together mediums and registers, figuration and abstraction, past and present. The exhibition takes us on a journey through time and an analysis of the notion of heritage and how to overcome the norms of traditions.
