Over an entire floor, the exhibition at the macLYON will be built around River of no Return, the immense canvas measuring 140 metres which the macLYON would like to purchase with the support of a crowdfunding campaign on KissKissBankBank, due to be launched mid-October 2023. This is a dual event: the first ever public presentation of this monumental work, and the first time that Sylvie Selig will see it in its entirety.

The exhibition will also highlight many of the artist’s other productions, thus illustrating the diversity of her practice: embroidery on textiles, paintings, drawings, and sculptures, including the mannequins Sylvie Selig refers to as her Weird Family...

Curator: Isabelle Bertolotti, director of the macLYON
