Civilization: The Way We Live Now | Group Exhibition at MuCEM

The Museum of Civilizations of Europe and the Mediterranean (MuCEM) in Marseille is currently hosting a major group exhibition titled Civilization: The Way We Live Now. Running from February 24 to June 28, 2021, the show presents work from one hundred and ten photographers hailing from five continents. Huxley-Parlour artists exhibiting in the show include Pieter Hugo, Wang Qingsong, Olaf Otto Becker, and Valérie Belin. Hugo will exhibit a selection from There’s a Place in Hell for Me and my Friends, a portrait series completed in 2012. Valérie Belin’s photographs from her series Models II (2006) and Still Life (2014) are also included in this exhibition.

Civilization: The Way We Live Now draws an inclusive portrait of our time, exploring a global understanding of the 21st century. Showcasing over 200 original prints, the exhibition investigates elements that bring society together, be it science, leisure, work, or education. Curated by William Alexander Ewing and Holly Roussell, the international exhibition has been travelling since 2018, when it opened in the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul, Korea.
