For the new edition of Performing PAC, the starting point is a reinterpretation of the exhibition ULTIME NEWS. Christian Boltanski, curated by Jean-Hubert Martin at the PAC in 2005. One of the main keys to interpreting Boltanski's work is precisely the analysis of the concept of "time", which inexorably flows and in which memory and remembrance become the signs, the traces, of man's fragile and unstable passage.
The 2023 exhibition is in fact dedicated to the relationship between contemporary art and historical memory, and the idea is to recount - through videos, photographs, installations, performances and a small "flashback" exhibition with material from the PAC Archive - how contemporary artistic practice and research has treated memory not as knowledge of history as an end in itself, but as a significantly and emotionally charged connection experienced between subjects and events that transcend their singularity.

With the participation of: Maja Bajevic, Yael Bartana, Christian Boltanski, Maurizio Cattelan, Clemencia Echeverri, Miguel Gomes, Douglas Gordon, Ottonella Mocellin e Nicola Pellegrini, Giulio Squillacciotti.
