As part of Le Printemps de Septembre 2016 in Toulouse (France), led by Christian Bernard, Espace Croix-Baragnon is presenting Resonances: Second Movement an exhibition exploring the notion of rhythm in the work of artists from diverse backgrounds.

Resonances is the second chapter of the project All Of Us Have Sense Of Rhythm presented at David Roberts Art Foundation (DRAF), London in 2015, which title was inspired by an anecdote by Langston Hughes, a seminal figure of the Harlem Renaissance. Recalling in an interview how he became a poet – a practice requiring a sense of rhythm – Hughes mentioned how he was then subject of the stereotype whereby all black people have a sense of rhythm.

Drawing from Léopold Sédar Senghor’s writings and the history of American musical avant-garde, this exhibition highlights a number of lineages between non-western traditional arts and the much broader field of contemporary practices that have remained overlooked in mainstream interpretations of contemporary arts and cultures.

Presented across Croix-Baragnon’s two spaces, the Gallery and Espace III, the exhibition features music scores, videos, sculptures, paintings, poetry, photography and sound art by artists John Cage, Ayoka Chenzira, Satch Hoyt, Langston Hughes, Madeleine Mbida, Yinka Shonibare MBE and William Titley.
