Maud Jacquin


Maud Jacquin is an art historian and curator.

She has developed research projects over several years around artistic practices she finds inspiring, such as those of Pauline Oliveros, Klonaris/Thomadaki, Alison Knowles and KwieKulik. This research has taken the form of several exhibitions, symposia and publications in France and abroad. With Sébastien Pluot, she is co-director of Art by Translation, an international research and exhibition program involving partner institutions in four countries and participating artists engaged in a post-master course. Their most recent exhibitions include Foreign Affairs (Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers ; Ygrec-ENSAPC et CAC Torres Vedras ; Palais national de Belém, Lisbonne), Time Capsules 2045 (Beaux-arts de Paris ; GamMAH Genève), The Intolerable Straight Line (Galerie Art&Essai, Rennes), Shelter or Playground (MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles) and The Tyranny of Distance (TALM-Angers and FLAX@Tinflats, Los Angeles).

Her PhD, completed at University College London, focused on the politics of narrative in feminist experimental film and video. This research led to several publications and projects, including "From Reel to Real: Women, Feminism and the London Film-makers' Co-operative", a program of fifty films and performances first shown at Tate Modern and Tate Britain in London, then at Anthology Film Archives in New York and the Glasgow Film Theatre.
