Gérard Garouste

The Centre Georges Pompidou is holding a retrospective exhibition devoted to Gérard Garouste, one of the most important contemporary French painters, born in 1946, who is a figurationist without concession. Gérard Garouste was a student at the Beaux-arts de Paris at the end of the 1960s, and his reading of Marcel Duchamp’s interviews with Pierre Cabanne prompted him to defy the ban on painting at a time when conceptual practices were the order of the day. Thus, he became a painter, in the most traditional sense of the term, focusing on technique, which he never ceased to perfect, by observing the masters in the Louvre: Poussin, El Greco, Tintoretto… In the 1980s, he began to create large paintings under the sign of Greek mythology, to which he superimposed his personal mythology around the figures of the Classic, the Indian, the Apollonian and the Dionysian, which, according to him, is in all of us. Alongside 120 major paintings, often of very large format, the exhibition also gives a place to the sculpture and graphic work. This exhibition allows us to grasp the full richness of Gérard Garouste’s unclassifiable career, whose life of study, but also of madness, and his enigmatic work, feed off each other in a striking dialogue. With his large figurative canvases, the artist revisits the history of art through the genres of painting, which he seeks to exhaust. The exhibition dedicated to him follows step by step the path and the personal mythology of one of the most important French painters.   Museum : Centre Georges Pompidou Address : Place Georges Pompidou 75004 Paris Price : 15€. Schedule: open from Wednesday to Tuesday from 11am to 9pm. Metro : Hôtel de Ville station lines 1 and 11 Châtelet station lines 1, 4, 7, 11 and 14 RER : Châtelet-les Halles lines A, B, D

Lekha Singh – Women carry the world

On their heads, on their backs, on their shoulders, at arm’s length or close to them, for centuries they have carried children, transported wood, water, food, bricks or mountains of cotton. Follow them through this exhibition, which reveals the spectacular burdens they carry. American photographer Lekha Singh pays tribute to the women of the world. Each in their own way, women carry a part of the world. It is time to bring them into the spotlight, and this is what the American photographer does so brilliantly. On the tracks of the fields, the roads of the markets, the paths of the villages or the tumult of the cities, you will follow sportswomen, mothers, doyennes with ankles cracked by the heat of the day or teenagers who put their nascent strengths to the test.   Exhibition until 02 January 2023.
