In April 2019, Pascale Marthine Tayou will create a solo exhibition in Mu.ZEE. The artist has, in fact, been active in the museum since February 2018. He is working on a ‘prologue’ whereby he places an artwork in the museum on a regular basis. Tayou challenges Mu.ZEE not to play it safe but to collaborate with him from day one, and to immediately link the output back to the audience. He approaches the museum as a laboratory, a place for experiment, a space that ought to be in constant motion. Why wait until 2019 to pose the questions triggered by his works, when they need to be asked today? An intense collaboration with Pascale Marthine Tayou is like expanding the road that Mu.ZEE has been carving out for several years. The museum deliberately opts for long-term trajectories with artists working around social themes. Indirectly, these exhibition projects give oxygen to the museum debate on decolonization, the decanonization of the collections and the role of the museum in the 21st century.
