Gérard Garouste

Gérard Garouste et l'école des prophètes - Solo show


This Summer, Gérard Garouste has expressed the wish to install some of his works in the new rooms of the Remembrance Place of Chambon sur Lignon. Familiar with the Talmud, the artist wanted to know more about these young Jews, who in the darkest hours of Nazism had reflected on the revival of Jewish thought by calling themselves, with a touch of provocation, the School of prophets.

Gérard Garouste's painting draws its inspiration from the Talmudic tradition, the horror of the Shoah and its personal history. The exhibition offers a journey between painting and biblical texts, between art and history, around a selection of paintings that resonate with the reflections of this group of thinkers.

Prune Nourry

Daughters - Solo show


Château Malromé is pleased to welcome in its walls, during this summer 2019, about twenty works of Prune Nourry previously exhibited from Spring to Autumn 2017 at the Guimet Museum (Paris). In this series of works, Prune Nourry has seized upon a problem particular to Indian and Chinese societies, the disappearance of a whole age-class of little girls caused by the use of prenatal predictive medical techniques in favor of boys. These sculptures, in a new scenography of Benjamin Gabrié, find new echoes in Malromé, family home of Toulouse-Lautrec.

ALBEROlaBELLEROJOUX - Group show


While so many points bring them together, and they are important references for the current generation of artists and commentators, Jean-Michel Alberola and Arnaud Labelle-Rojoux have, inexplicably, never been exhibited together.

In the imposing setting of the Convent of the Minimes, seven secular« chapels » will host, like so many chapters of a book, the recent productions of the two artists, in a telescoping worthy of a synchrocyclotron of thought and art. This visual and mental bombardment should allow the viewer to "see", that is to say to access, even incompletely, even imperfectly, the energetic poetic and political charge lurking in the heart of these works .

Claude Viallat

Re - commencer - Solo show


Claude Viallat is a confirmed artist, one of the very first French artists of his generation, but his work finds today a very contemporary resonance as the ecological consciousness develops, the return to practices and craft techniques, to a know-how that is a way of resisting hyper mechanization, technological development, digital dematerialization and the reversal of man's position in his environment. The unseemly part that we perceive in Claude Viallat's work, this impertinence sought in support, form or color, this unexpected, this unfinished, this precariousness, has the character of an absolute youth.

Pattern, Crime & Decoration - Group show


Le Consortium examines in this large group exhibition the “Pattern & Decoration” movement, formed in the 1970s and that enjoyed international success in the 1980s.

Most of the artists involved were reacting against the dominance of abstract schools in the Post-War era, with a particular opposition to Minimal and Conceptual art. The group organized around “pattern and decoration” reconnected with what was widely perceived as “minor” art forms and asserted decoration as the true repressed of modernity. 

The exhibition, co-organized with MAMCO in Geneva, also includes several pieces by artists associated with the Supports/Surfaces group: Noël Dolla and Claude Viallat.

Produced in Portuguese stone, a million-year-old natural resource, they share this unifying element that bestows them with a deep timelessness and resilience, somewhat contradicting the chaos and superficiality of the contemporary world. Placed within the gardens of the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, immersed in nature and displayed together, these pieces provide visitors with moments of experimentation and confrontation, underlining the value of art and culture in public spaces.

The man who measures the clouds - Biennale di Venezia


On the occasion of the 58th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, Jan Fabre returns to the Lagoon with the presentation of a special public art project. Installed inside the Garden of Palazzo Balbi Valier and visible from the Grand Canal, the monumenal sculpture in gold leaf "The Man who Measures the Clouds (Monument to the Measure of the Immeasurable)", stands nine meters high . Designed specifically for Venice, it recalls a deep bond with this city, established over the past decades. Leaning over the arch leading to the Garden of Palazzo Balbi Valier from the Grand Canal, this imposing man of gold reflects not only the drift of the artist and humanity, but also the meaning and historical values of this mythical floating city.

Souvenirs de voyage. La collection de Galbert - Group show


The collection of Antoine de Galbert, "soft and luxurious therapy", as he says himself, highlights his taste for decompartmentalization while reflecting his deepest obsessions. In contrast with a sometimes austere and sanitized vision of contemporary art, this collection does not hesitate to bring together conceptual art and popular cultures, outsider art and emerging artists. Abolishing boundaries and privileging the mixing of genres, Antoine de Galbert likes to find his way off the beaten track considering that the time in which we live more than ever needs magic, mystery, simplicity and universality.

FEAST OF FOOLS - Groups show


Pieter Bruegel is often seen as the embodiment of Flemish identity. Why has that been so since the revival of his work around 1900? How has he grown to become an icon, an inexhaustible source of inspiration and a huge cliché? In the exhibition 'Feast of Fools. Bruegel Rediscovered' the visitor becomes acquainted with a series of key works by modern masters and creations by contemporary artists who ‘have a thing for Bruegel’. They latch onto his themes, reinterpret them, quote him ... and thus demonstrate that his work has lost none of its relevance.

Line of Thought - Solo show


Chiharu Shiota originally studied painting in Kyoto. She completed her studies in Berlin with Marina Abramovic and Rebecca Horn, whose influence is notable particularly in Shiota’s early works. She explores subjects such as memory and forgetting, presence and absence of the body as well as the interwoven and multi-faceted nature of human relationships.
All of her works form poetic, pulsating bodies within space and have a direct connection with her earlier performances. To Shiota, the threads and their interweaving also symbolize the extension of life beyond the body, such as in sleep and dreams, in thought and imagination – invisible connections that her webs make visible.

The Gropius Bau explores the concept of crafts and handmade processes in Berlin’s contemporary art scene, taking its history as a former museum for decorative arts and educational institution as a starting point.
Multiple aspects come into focus when looking at the selection of works exhibited, ranging from the ornamental and decorative, which is reminiscent of visual motifs found in Eastern religions and Byzantine mosaics, to the history of design in Modernism and the twentieth-century, involving craftsmanship from Berlin to South America. 
The exhibition shows the incredible variety of artistic practices that can be found in Berlin today and demonstrates the Gropius Bau’s commitment to continue to provide a regular platform for Berlin artists.

In his relation to animals, man seeks to define his singularity, the nature of what constitutes the essence of his identity. These multiple contacts, sometimes marked by promiscuity, are both inevitable and necessary. He cannot ignore or do without this vital relationship. From the insect to the mammal, encompassing fish and birds, from tiny to gigantic, from familiar to exotic, the animal challenges humanity on the place it presumes to be its own in the world.

Omar Ba

Same Dream - solo show


The Power Plant presents Omar Ba's first institutional solo exhibition.Omar Ba’s work engages with some of the most urgent issues of our time: the growing inequality of wealth and power globally, questions around immigration, and our changing relationship with the natural world. His penchant for depicting personal narratives alongside collective ones speaks to the“in-between” condition of his work, as he splits his time between Dakar, Senegal and Geneva, Switzerland, and blends the visual texture of both places through his practice. Ba draws from and intertwines a range of elements— the historical and contemporary, figurative and abstract imagery—from African and European cultures, and the techniques and tools he employs; including corrugated cardboard and canvas, paintbrushes and his hands. Additionally, Ba’s chosen materials are typically selected from his immediate surroundings and repurposed in creative ways. He prepares his surfaces—whether cardboard, canvas or wall—with a black ground, upon which he layers a vivid palette dominated by primary colours. His paintings teem with details as micro-worlds transpire within larger constellations, oscillating between bold planes of colour and intricate outlines, which unravel across their surfaces. The figures and forms portrayed are largely symbolic, referring not to specific individuals, but rather open to universal narratives. 
 
Same Dream brings together several of Ba’s paintings depicting dictators and authority figures, who lead corrupt and violent regimes across the African continent and in other parts of the world, particularly where the legacies of colonialism persist. At times represented as hybrid beasts—part human, part animal— these despotic warlords are typically enveloped in an abundance of lush flora and fauna. Indeed, nature becomes a recurring force across Ba’s oeuvre. These biomorphic shapes are often inspired by Senegal’s dazzling coastal environment in which Ba grew up. In conversation with this group of paintings, the exhibition also presents works that reveal Ba’s affinity for portraying the strength of the human spirit --depictions of youth who, regardless of where they are, share some of the same dreams for the future. For the exhibition at The Power Plant, Ba has developed a new large-scale work directly on the walls of the gallery, exploring a recurrent motif of birth, death and reincarnation across different cultures today. The world of Omar Ba’s painting is a hybrid one, ultimately evoking a shared cosmogony between humans, plants and animals.

Vingt-quatre heures de la vie d'une femme - Group show


250 works novelize the intimate and the universal.

The exhibition Vingt-quatre heures de la vie d'une femme (twenty-four hours of a woman's life) tells the story of an imaginary and multiple day. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs and objects of design illustrate this fiction of everyday life, from awakening to dreaming. The works are presented differently, in a spirit closer to everyone’s everyday life, reconnecting art to the present. It's about telling another history of art: a history of emotions and life.
