Pathways to abstraction. 17 non-figurative painters in conversation with Jean Grenier
June 3 – September 30, 2023
Curated by Antoine Villeneuve
The exhibition Pathways to abstraction. 17 non-figurative painters in conversation with Jean Grenier is directly inspired by Jean Grenier’s book of interviews, Entretiens avec 17 peintres non-figuratifs, published in 1963, 60 years ago. In this book, Jean Grenier, philosopher, writer and art critic, interviews 17 painters about their careers and how they evolved to reach their form of expression in the early 60s. Before us, a review of twenty years of creative and artistic evolution, which revolutionized modern art and the way we look at painting.
