The exhibition Elo (now in Luxembourg parlance) presents a snapshot of contemporary production in Luxembourg. Organised by Mudam
, it exhibits works mostly produced specially for the exhibition by artists brought together by the independent curator Christian Mosar.
Underlining the fact that there is no specifically Luxembourg art, while showing works that involve different approaches and subjects, Elo aims to focus on the important development of visual arts in Luxembourg over the last decade. This evolution was aided both by the implementation of a dynamic cultural policy, that included the creation of new institutions dedicated to contemporary art, and by the growing number of artists residing in Luxembourg. New talents emerged during this decade and established artists reconsidered and updated their approach.
The particular context of the Grand Duchy, with its limited territorial space and openness to the world, means that its art scene is viewed as a digest of singularities and plays of influences that enlivens todays artistic field: between interior exile and external limits.
