‘Ulysses’ Dream’ Is a New Group Exhibition Inspired by 'The Iliad'

Ulysses’ Dream is a new group exhibition that transforms Fondation Carmignac into a labyrinth of art. Inspired by Homer’s ancient Greek poem The Iliad, the show presents a disorienting maze of corridors where visitors are faced with a decision: “take this path or turn their back on it, see one work and not another.”

Guest curated by Francesco Stocchi, the exhibition invites audiences on an introspective journey accompanied by an extraordinary range of artwork and motifs, including work from John Baldessari, Jenny Holzer and Jean-Michel Basquiat to Olafur Eliasson, Gerhard Richter, Cindy Sherman and many more.

Located on the Mediterranean island of Hyères, the exhibition is amongst the same light, sea, trees and caves as in Homer’s mythic tale. To accompany the exhibition, Editions Dilecta has published a catalog that documents the work on display, along with text and essays by Stocchi, Achille Bonito Oliva and Paula Burleigh.

Ulysses’ Dream is on view until October 16. See the full list of exhibiting artists below.
