The Académie de France à Rome - Villa Médicis presents Take Me (I’m yours), a collective, interactive exhibition which brings together works from Villa Médicis’ 15 residents alongside international artists, making up a total of 90 artists. Actively encouraged by the director Muriel Mayette-Holtz, under the curatorship of Christian Boltanski, Hans Ulrich Obrist and Chiara Parisi, Take Me (I’m yours) is the largest exhibition of contemporary art ever shown at Villa Médicis.
The exhibition is put together like a worksite, following the Renaissance tradition where all the disciplines were mixed together in the construction of the same project. A real urban industry in which artists, architects, designers, musicians and writers participate and work together for many days. Conceived in 1995 by Christian Boltanski and Hans Ulrich Obrist for the Serpentine Gallery in London, Take Me (I’m yours) has seen several re-orchestrations over the world, enriching and developing itself with each new curatorship, display, rules and bringing together a growing number of artists, each time invited to challenge the format.
