#FLVfromhome : The Collection of the Fondation. A Vision for Painting

Past exhibition - Wednesday 1 April 2020

6 p.m.

Since you can't come to us, the Fondation continues to share content ! 

 

The Fondation invites you to go back on The Collection of the Fondation. A Vision for Painting exhibition presented from 20 February 2019 to 26 August 2019.

 

The exhibition “The Collection of the Fondation. A Vision for Painting” displayed a selection of 70 works from its Collection, gathering 23 international artists from the 1960s to the present day around one main theme: painting.

 

Painting takes many forms: figurative or abstract, expressive or distanced. Rooms devoted to Joan Mitchell, Alex Katz, Gerhard Richter, Ettore Spalletti, Yayoi Kusama and Jesús Rafael Soto alternated with thematic displays on abstraction, space and colour. This exhibition showed the ways in which painting never ceases to reinvent itself and transgress its own rules.

 

Chief curator: Suzanne Pagé

Curators: Sébastien Gokalp, with Ludovic Delalande, Claire Staebler and Nathalie Ogé

 

To learn more about the artists and art works of this exhibition, go on our online Collection.
