Muriel Enjalran

  • Spring 2015
  • Visiting from Lille, France

Muriel Enjalran researches the artist’s relationship to public property and examines how these practices encourage a rethinking of art making and aesthetics. Enjalran also has been developing a collaborative network that brings together artists from Portugal, Brazil and Morocco, where she also regularly curates projects for L’appartement 22, an independent art space in Rabat, Morocco. Since 2006, Enjalran has worked at the d.c.a – the French association for the development of centres d’art – where she has helped coordinate a structure of 50 art spaces across France that enables connections between the spaces and other European institutions. Enjalran was an Associate Curator for the first edition of the Biennale de Belleville, Paris, in 2011; and for the 3rd Arts in Marrakech International Biennale, in 2009.


Muriel Enjalran visited Chicago in the Spring and Fall of 2015, as part of a yearlong cultural exchange program between France and the United States in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the Institut français. During her curatorial visits, Enjalran will expand current work on contemporary artists’ changing relationship to public space as well as participate in a series of studio visits with Chicago artists.
