THE COLLECTION OF THE FONDATION. A VISION FOR PAINTING

The Fondation Louis Vuitton displays a new selection of 70 works from the collection and gathers 23 international artists from the 1960s to the present day around one main theme : painting.
This takes many forms: figurative or abstract, expressive or distanced. Relief pieces are contrasted with each other. Rooms devoted to Joan Mitchell, Alex Katz, Gerhard Richter, Ettore Spalletti, Yayoi Kusama and Jesús Rafael Soto alternate with thematic collections on abstraction, space and colour. The hanging shows the ways in which painting never ceases to reinvent itself and transgress its own rules, drawing on current techniques for reproduction.

NABIS AND DECORATION! BONNARD, VUILLARD, MAURICE DENIS …
March 13, 2019 to June 30, 2019 Musée du Luxembourg
The contribution of the Nabis to the decorative arts, although vital, is still not well known. The question of the decorative as a fundamental principle of the unity of creation was established when the group formed in the late 1880s, by artists who wanted to break down the barrier between fine art and the applied arts.
True pioneers of modern decoration, Bonnard, Vuillard, Maurice Denis, Sérusier, Ranson and Vallotton defended an art form that was linked directly to life. They created original, joyous, rhythmic works intended to brighten up contemporary interiors, a reaction against the pastiche aesthetic that was then in fashion.

SALLY MANN - A THOUSAND CROSSINGS
June 18, 2019 to September 22, 2019 - Jeu de Paume
For more than forty years, Sally Mann (born 1951) has been taking hauntingly beautiful experimental photographs that explore the essential themes of existence: memory, desire, mortality, family, and nature's overwhelming indifference towards mankind. What gives unity to this vast corpus of portraits, still lifes, landscapes and miscellaneous studies is that it is the product of one place, the southern United States.
This exhibition is the first major retrospective of the eminent artist's work; it examines her relationship with her native region and how it has shaped her work.

Linked to specific sites and regions, his projects grow organically over long periods and are nourished by an accumulation of personal and collective experiences.

The Centre Pompidou invites French painter Bernard Frize (born in 1954) to take over the Gallery 3 space for a major exhibition of his works.
Some sixty artworks, from his beginnings in 1977 up until his most recent creations, reveal how Bernard Frize has been constantly questioning pictorial practices and the role of the painter for more than 40 years, condemning demiurgic gesture and creative ego in favor of a technical, banal, sometimes preposterous, and oftentimes absurd, process: «With unreason, without effort, with system, without system, with mastery, without stopping»…
