Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel

Expert visit in Stockholm 15 – 17 January 2020

Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel is a French curator and writer, director of the Fondation Lafayette Anticipations (Paris) and former curator at Palais de Tokyo (2012- 2019). She is chief curator of the second edition of the Riga International Biennial of Contemporary Art (RIBOCA2). Her internationally critically acclaimed projects include solo exhibitions of Tomás Saraceno, Tino Sehgal, Marguerite Humeau, Ed Atkins, David Douard, Helen Marten, François Curlet and Jon Rafman.

ON AIR by Tomás Saraceno (2018-2019) spanned the entire 13,000 m2 of the Palais de Tokyo and became the most attended exhibition in its history, while the Carte Blanche to Tino Sehgal (2016) was the largest live-art show ever presented worldwide. In 2015, she presented the group show Le bord des mondes (The edge of the worlds), which focused on the limits of the territories of art after the writings of Marcel Duchamp.

Lamarche-Vadel has regularly collaborated with international institutions, such as the Château de Versailles with Voyage d’Hiver (associate curator, 2017), the 11th Bamako Biennale (curatorial advisor, 2017-2018), MoMA PS1 with the projects Truce (2013) and Bright Intervals (2014), the Stedelijk Museum and Trouw with Landscape (2013) and the 12th Biennale de Lyon with Unachieved Presents (Resonance, 2013).

A graduate in History, Political Sciences and Art History at the Sorbonne, she regularly coordinates and participates in seminars, juries, and talks worldwide, and her writings have appeared in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Monopol, Mousse, Cura and l’Officiel Art, amongst others. She is the guest curator of FIAC special projects in 2019.
