Chris Marker Notes from the Era of Imperfect Memory

Curating Chris Marker: The Word & The Image


Appearing in the Whitechappel channel on Youtube, the following video was just released and gives an excellent overview of the architecture of the exhibition, modeled on the play of image and text that pervades all of Marker’s creations. One learns from the curators’ reflections how the exhibition was designed to cover in this manner all aspects of the multifarious makings of the maker Chris Marker. Well, that’s quite a mouthful already, so without further ado, thanks to Christine van Assche and Chris Darke (both of whom have been fabulous supporters of this site as well), and on with the show.

As a reminder, you can find more details and some added photographs on the Whitechapel press release post. As the press release states:

Chris Marker is co-curated by Christine van Assche, Chief Curator, Centre Pompidou, Paris, writer and film critic Chris Darke, and Whitechapel Gallery Chief Curator Magnus Af Petersens.
