What a surprise to see a Madame B/ Madame Bovary mini exhibition at the Athenaeum bookstore while I was window shopping!
We are proud to let you know that a smaller satellite exhibition of Madame B is on tour to the VIVA festival in Valletta, Malta. The works in the show are the same as in the Tallinn exhibition, but the title is now changed to Cause & Effect, which is more fitting. The show in Malta is still open until 5 October. More information on the festival and tickets to be found here: Valletta International Visual Arts Festival
The 96 minute feature film of Madame B will have its world premiere today! We are so proud that the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam will host the premiere as well as a meet the artist talk. Mieke and Michelle will introduce Madame B and discuss several themes in the film and their relation to Flaubert and Visual Culture. Also present at this wonderful event are our three main actors: Marja Skaffari, Thomas Germaine and Mathieu Montanier. The screening is sold out, but we hope to announce new screenings or else you can pre-order the DVD box which is due for release in October.
We have uploaded the video tour of the Sydney exhibition to our vimeo channel. Enjoy!
Today is the opening of Madame B in Colombia! The exhibition is located at two sites, in Medellín and Villegas. Lucrecia Piedrahita Orrego curated the exhitbition for these locations. We’ll update the website soon with photos and a video tour.
We are thrilled to announce the opening of the exhibition in Åland, as this is where we shot many of the film scenes. The opening was very special for Michelle and Mieke as many of the cast and crew joined and on top of this all, the whole show was curated by the producer of our film, Mervi Appel. Mervi now works as director of the Eckerö Post och Tullhus and made the exhibition possible in this beautiful venue next to the sea side of where Emma and Rodolphe meet in scene 6.
On Wednesday March 26 Lancaster University will hold a preview screening of Madame B in the Storey. The film will be shown at 6pm followed by a lecture by Mieke and Q&A afterwards. Please join if you’d like, all are welcome.
Tonight there will be a preview screening in Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź at 6PM. Mieke will be present and she warmly welcomes everybody (who is in the neighborhood). Please find more information (in Polish) about the event here.
