Être Pierre: Anselmo, Brassaï, Giraud and Siboni, Picasso, Zadkine, PatersonArt
September 29, 2017 to February 11, 2018
At Museum Zadkine
To commemorate the 50th death anniversary of sculptor Ossip Zadkine (1890-1967), Musée Zadkine’s exhibition Être Pierre will examine the links between stone and Zadkine and other artists. In a context marked by environmental concerns and a renewed link between humans and their ecosystem, the exhibition Être Pierre explores the dynamic role of stone through a mix of works by several generations of artists. The exhibition will also study the use of stone in these artists’ work with several media – sculpture, photography, drawings, videos and films – as well as through archaeologic objects and primitive arts.
The exhibition will include over 130 works by several artists, including Giovanni Anselmo, Brassaï, Constantin Brancusi, Claude Cahun, Marc Couturier, Paul-Armand Gette, Fabien Giraud and Raphaël Siboni, Pablo Picasso, Ossip Zadkine, Katie Paterson, Auguste Rodin, Oscar Santillan, Giuseppe Penone and Akio Suzuki.
