Jaume Plensa / Kiki Smith / Barthélémy Toguo — TRIO


Mixed media

Jaume Plensa / Kiki Smith / Barthélémy Toguo

Past: September 11 → October 11, 2014

Three artists from the same generation but from very different backgrounds: the Catalan Jaume Plensa, the American Kiki Smith and the Cameroonian Barthélémy Toguo. Three artists who over the last decade have forged an international reputation. Three artists who like to explore a variety of materials and produce works of art two and three dimensions. Three artists who place the human form at the centre of their work.

After an exhibition of monumental sculptures in Bordeaux in summer 2013, Jaume Plensa’s work is on display in the Millennium Park in Chicago this summer, for the 10th anniversary of his Crown Fountain that has become one of the city’s emblems. Last year, Kiki Smith was one of the highlights of the Les Papesses exhibition, organised by Collection Lambert and the Palais des Papes in Avignon.

So far in 2014, the MNAM-Centre Pompidou, the Tate Gallery and the Fondation Louis Vuitton have each acquired an important piece by Barthélémy Toguo. The Musée d’Art Moderne in Saint-Etienne recently honoured him with his first solo exhibition in a French museum.
