The Watchmen, the Liars, the Dreamers is the third part of the Concrete Erudition programme devised by curator Guillaume Désanges, who has been invited to come up with a cycle of exhibitions at Le Plateau. As part and parcel of the continuity created by The Planet of Signs and Prisoners of the Sun, this exhibition in its turn questions the way in which certain contemporary artists are renewing the relationship between art and knowledge, by showing, this time around, the work of artists who are observerswatchmen of the present and of the past.
