Launching in spring 2017, Carte Blanche is a new experimental programme by MMOMA, inviting art institutions to implement their own curatorial initiatives at MMOMA sites. With Carte Blanche, MMOMA aims to develop creative dialogue and synergy, strengthening cultural ties between state museums and other institutions. Guest institutions will select the theme, artists and format of the exhibitions they present, opening up new ideas to MMOMA’s visitors and giving invited institutions the opportunity to address issues such as the implementation of their projects in a different
context and familiarity with new audiences. Building on the activities of the museum, it will further MMOMA’s ambition to broaden current perceptions of contemporary art.
V-A-C Foundation is the first institution to participate and will present four projects, which will analyse new possibilities as well as existing boundaries and limitations of a museum and an exhibition. Participation in Carte Blanche builds on long-standing V-A-C programme which looks into contemporary museum formats, expanding the space of art and establishing new relationships with the audience.
