Emma Lavigne is director of the Centre Pompidou-Metz, France. As curator at the Paris Cité de la Musique, she curated many exhibitions devoted to the connections between music, sound and contemporary art; she also organised the solo shows of major music or visual art artists such as Chen Zen, Christina Kubish, Saâdane Afif or Christian Marclay.
In 2008, she moved to the Centre Pompidou where she was the curator of the much admired Pierre Huyghe and Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster retrospectives, and Danser sa
vie (in collaboration with Christine Macel). As director of the Centre Pompidou-Metz, she has curated, amongst other exhibitions, Warhol Underground, Kimsooja – To Breathe, Musicircus, and Oskar Schlemmer, among others. She was the curator of the French pavilion at the 2015 Venice Biennale with Céleste Boursier-Mougenot’s experimental project Rêvolutions. She is now preparing Infinite Garden, due to open in March 2017 at Centre Pompidou-Metz, a group show dedicated to the idea of a subversive, chaotic and unnatural garden, staged by the artist Daniel Steegmann Mangrané.
