Board member of C-E-A
Madeleine Mathé has been the director of the CACC in Clamart since 2012. There, she has been developing a program dedicated to supporting contemporary art and graphic design while publicizing these practices to a wider audience. Considering the art center to be an experimentation platform for the emerging scene she presents exhibitions that reveal the deep thinking of the artist in his or her first years of practice. With this in mind, Violaine Lochu, Aurélie Pétrel, Julien Nédélec, Nicolas Boulard, Chourouk Hriech, and the Swiss duo Petra Koelhe and Nicolas Vermot have all been invited for solo exhibitions.
In 2007, she obtained her second Master’s degree in “Contemporary Art and its Exhibitions” from the University of Paris IV-Sorbonne. She has since worked for the Cneai (Chatou) and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. She has previously been involved with the public sphere and international exhibitions such as Playback, Kara Walker, Channel TV, Banc Public, and has also accompanied artists in residence. In parallel, she developed a practice as a freelance curator, which lead to her interest in exhibitions outside of the white cube, such as with the project “Chez Edgar,” a series of exhibitions in apartments.
