Marie Frampier

Marie Frampier's curatorial practise principally questions the exhibiting of contemporary performance through exhibitions, performance programs or hybrid formats between symposium and invisible performance. The performative dimension of curating and writing about art is a way for her to be close to the presented work and to optimise the artistic experience of the public.


After studying Art History, Marie Frampier went on to do a residency at the De Appel Curatorial Programme in 2010-2022 and was co-curator of the collective exhibition Fluiten in het Donker (of Appel Boys’ School Amsterdam, 2011). She was in residency at Astérides (Marseille) in 2012 and at the Darling Foundry in the Fall of 2013. She was a guest curator at Centre d’art Micro Onde for the exhibition Vertiges and curator in residency at Maison populaire de Montreuil from January to December 2014. In 2016, she was in charge of the mission art & entreprises at Mains d’œuvres – lieu pour l’imagination artistique et citoyenne (Saint-Ouen, France), where she developed residencies for artists in businesses and organized a triangular sponsorship program. She writes a monthly column called « Art & entreprises & … », in which she talks about the relationship between art and business. She is also a correspondent for DUUU* radio.
