Agent Troublant

Since 2018, Agent Troublant is committed to promote little known and emerging artists as well as the practice of self-publishing. Open to all, four days a week, the space welcomes, champions and creates encounters between artists, curious people and people living in the neighborhood. Agent Troublant articulates its activities around two positions: to spread mirco-publishing works in the “Fanzinery” and to offer a yearly artistic program where exhibitions, a festival, publications, performances and workshops intertwine. For Murmurations, Agent Troublant is putting together a document base named Agentrification to read within the exhibition space, in a scenography by Thibaut Ceasar.

Belsunce Projects

Belsunce Projects, an independent non-profit venue meant for the development and the diffusion of contemporary creation to a large audience on a local and international scale, is a place of confluences, using its curatorial project as a tool to build a network connecting local and international artists and project spaces.
Belsunce Projects conceives its program as a constantly renewed experience, led by the idea of open form. It focuses on art forms and theory research conducted by BP along with artists and curators from various backgrounds. Our actions take diverse forms: cartes blanches, solo and group exhibitions, talks and bookclubs, panels… Those actions can take place in or out of the venue.
Beside the exhibitions, at the core of Belsunce Projects, is a principle of welcoming, that enabled us to welcome other independent curatorial initiatives as well as other project-spaces to invest the venue, allowing to strengthen solidarity within the artistic community.
Since June 2021, the Belsunce Projects intention became nomade and opens a new chapter of its functionning. After moving four times in three years of existence, we do not own a physical space anymore due to the global difficulties – financial precarity of a young non-profit art space – and our projects are now welcomed by close structures. For Murmurations, Belsunce Projects is showing an installation in-process around a poem composed with the four hands of the founders of the project, Won Jin Choi for the text part and Basile Ghosn for the visual production. / @belsunceprojects

Gufo is a collective through which we are willing to place the necessary action of eating to live, create and celebrate. It questions our conditions as artists, art workers and more globally the notion of work at the expense of the imperative qualified as “putting food on the table”, often tedious but vital. Gufo wishes to question our individual and collective ways of action and of subsistence, our economic and context conditions, our necessary energies and inherent expenses. Our research particularly focuses on bread, as a central, vital and symbolic element. Its trade is the momentum towards the other, resources sharing, a care, energy and listening promise. Through bread, Gufo feeds itself by feeding, it nourishes by eating, in a prosper and joyful autophagy.
Since May 2021, Gufo associated to Traduttore, traditore to found the HOOT publication. HOOT is a printed conversation, a series of exchanges transcribed with an art worker or a collective arounf the notion of work as an activity, a method, an environment, a milieu, a symbol and a necessity. Each season, from Fall to the next Summer, whether it is on a Wednesday or a Sunday, HOOT offers to its readers, a discussion that we hope to be passionate, and liberated. The 4 central pages are freely invested by the guests. Each edition will be written in the used and shared language for the conversation. For Murmurations, Gufo invites four artists to produce a series of ceramic loaf pans: Opale Mirman, Lisa Mouchet, Lou Jelenski and Romain Kloeckner. The pans will be presented in the space and activated through baking sessions and banquets. / @gufo_gufo_gufo

MUFF – Marseille Underground Film Festival 

Marseille Underground Film & Music Festival presents since more than 6 years a program of artistic niches with little visibility in the fields of contemporary cinematography, sound and music experimental productions and widen writings from research, publication and performative fields.
Manipulated by an artists, programmers and curators collective, MUFF echoes in Marseille alternative cultural life and beyond, it intertwines the hybridity of its artistic interests as well as action areas. Its peer-to-peer relations converge towards the circulation of chosen memories to develop learning within encounter. An oddity stemming from artistic cultures in the margins, activist genealogies and underground paths, MUFF takes part in the writing of a mixed contemporary scene cultivating interaction of artistic territories with the publics to participate to the new definitions of tomorrow’s ecosystems. The installation by MUFF for Murmurations is a screening of the film made from the performance Black Power Naps, Choir of the Slain XX by Navild Acosta & Fanny Sosa.

Southway Studio

Southway Studio is an uncategorisable and multiform structure active in exhibition curating, artists residencies, and the conception and creation of art object and interior decoration. Southway Studio carries the vision of artistic creation as a consitutive element of a territorial and society dynamic based on human and its environment. Southway therefore aims at establishing a dialog between Marseille territory, its cultural heritage and contemporary art, through the aesthetic of its creations, the accompanying of artists in production or curatorial actions, under the artistic direction of Emmanuelle Luciani. Southway Studio settled in an elegant pavilion from the 19th century, located at 433 boulevard Michelet, at the doors of the old Mazargues district. The Southway Pavilion is not only the heart of the studio, but also the place for artist residencies, a working space for the guest artistsa as well as a disucussion and exhibition space. Southway Studio organizes several ambitious collective exhibitions during the year, such as “Monument à la Licorne” in 2021 at les Abattoirs, Toulouse, or “Anima Mundi” in 2020 in the Saint-Victor Abbaye in Marseille for Manifesta 13 biennale, as well as proto-projects exhibited at the Southway Pavilion. Since its foundation, Southway Studio is driven by the aim to conduct a reflection on the interactions between art and handicraft. Like the English movement of Arts & Crafts initiated by William Morris in the 19th century, the artists collective gathered in Southway Studio conceives and produces artworks with a domestic purpose. The pavilion embodies therefore the total artwork of Southway Studio, where artworks and art objects as well as decoration and furniture constitute a coherent whole, an everyday art. For Murmurations, Southway Studio invites Bella Hunt & DDC and Andrew Humke to invest the space.
