Exposition

TONY OURSLER, ECLIPSE

SOIRÉE NOMADE, FONDATION CARTIER POUR L’ART CONTEMPORAIN

Pioneer in video art, the American artist Tony Oursler exhibits his ingenious devices—part sculpture, installation and performance—around the world. For the exhibition Trees, he creates Eclipse, a video installation placed in the garden of the Fondation Cartier, where the trees are used to create images with video projection. He writes: “The enchanted forests are a refuge for our imagination.” Inspired by the transformation of Daphne into a tree, the Tree of Life from the Norse cosmogony, or a small metaphorical drawing of a tree by Charles Darwin representing his evolutionary theory, he creates a dynamic video installation where trees become the center of conflicting world views and come to life with projections inviting the viewer to reconsider technology and nature. When night falls, come and see Tony Oursler’s Lost Garden, a place between the known and the unimaginable, where utopic dreams still live on.

From Tuesday 15 to Sunday 20 October 2019, from 7pm to 10pm


In the presence of Tony Oursler on Tuesday, October 15 at 7pm

Access to the installation with the entrance ticket to the exhibition Nous les Arbres, within the limit of available places

OUTSIDER ART FAIR

THE ORIGINAL ART FAIR SPECIFIC TO SELF-TAUGHT ART CREATED OUTSIDE THE MAINSTREAM

Founded by Sandy Smith in 1993, the Outsider Art Fair soon became a critical and commercial success. Recognized for its maverick spirit, the fair played a vital role in building a passionate collecting community as crowds flocked annually to New York’s Puck Building, the event’s original site during its first 15 years.

In 2012, OAF was acquired by Wide Open Arts, a new company formed by art dealer Andrew Edlin. Its debut edition in 2013 saw the fair relocated to Center 548 in Chelsea and included guest curatorial projects and the OAF Talks program. OAF continues its tradition of presenting top dealers with prime examples of works by both legendary and newly discovered artists. The 2013 fair enjoyed rave reviews and more than tripled previous attendance levels.

Exposition

MONNAIE DE PARIS – KIKI SMITH EXHIBIT

The 11 Conti – Monnaie de Paris is proud to present the first solo show of the American artist Kiki Smith (born 1954, living in New York) by a French public institution.

This unique collection of exceptional breadth will bring together almost one hundred works from the 1980s to the present day. Visitors will be greeted by two sculptures in the exterior courtyards of Monnaie de Paris and the exhibition itself will be held on two floors, covering more than 1000m2, notably within the historic salons facing the Seine. The exhibition will cover the major themes of the artist’s oeuvre, including the human body, the female figure and the symbiotic relationship with nature, all of which are recurring motifs. The works to be presented at the Monnaie de Paris will reflect the great diversity of Kiki Smith’s practice, and the wide variety of media she has explored: bronze, plaster, glass, porcelain, tapestry, paper and wax.
