Les expositions rétrospectives de poésie au musée (XXe-XXIe siècles). De la “muséalie” à l’ “expoésie”

Abstract : How to exhibit a poetic work primary mode of publication is the exhibition? This is the question that this article hopes to answer, focusing on recent modes of exhibiting poems, which exceed the written medium by means of their visual or acoustic dimension. First, using the example of Mallarmé, I will discuss traditional practices of exhibition , which make of poetry a museum object. Second, I will compare this to the critical practices of exhibiting of contemporary poetry, which question the traditional role of the museum as place, space and poetic medium. The article then proposes a typology of exhibiting devices used in the retrospective exhibitions of Michele Métail, Bernard Heidsieck and Julien Blaine to show how they redeploy practices rooted in fields at once close and distinct: the museum, contemporary art and exhibited poetry, or "expoésie".
